UAE’s Ras Al Khaimah eyes 30,000 Indian arrivals in 2016

New Delhi: Ras Al Khaimah, one of the seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, is betting big on Indian arrivals to boost tourism in the destination. It expects to receive 30,000 Indian travellers in 2016 against 16,000 in 2015.

Haitham Mattar, CEO, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said, “India is our fourth largest source market after Germany, Russia and the UK. Indians are good spenders, especially on destination weddings, which are emerging as an attractive market for us.”

An Indian traveller spends two-three nights in the city and spends around $219 on an average. Increasing arrivals from India is an important area of focus as Ras Al Khaimah aims to attract 1 million tourists by 2019.
