The tourism sector of Dubai persists to recover quickly after the COVID-19 pandemic, as the Emirate reported a vast increase in tourists during the initial four months of this year.

According to the sources, the number of visitors arriving in the city was 5.1 million in January-April 2022, showing a significant increase of 203%.

The current flow of tourists also helped boost hotel occupancy around the Emirate, with 76% occupancy during that period.

A total of four million international visitors arrived in Dubai between January and March this year, which is a considerable rise year-on-year growth of 214%.

The city has also ranked first in the world in hotel occupancy during the first three months of 2022, with 82%.

Foreigners’ trust in UAE and Dubai has also enhanced after successful management during the pandemic and because of its status as one of the world’s safest cities.

A UK-based travel insurance company, InsureMyTrip, conducted a survey in which it was found that Dubai is the third safest city for females to travel solo due to the shallow crime rate.

A preliminary data by STR Global has disclosed that Dubai hotels recorded occupancy and average daily rates (ADR) that crossed the 2019 Eid-al-Fitr rates.

STR’s senior director for Africa and the Middle East, Philip Wooler, stated that Dubai witnessed rates over Dh700, up from Dh400 in 2019.

Dubai International Airport, the world’s most active in terms of international passenger traffic, also registered its busiest quarter since the pandemic during the first quarter.

Passenger traffic has also more than doubled to 13.6 million travellers, from 5.7 million in the same quarter in 2021, stated the Dubai Airports.

The recent growth in the tourism sector of the country has also uplifted growth, with business activity in the non-oil private sector surging to its most substantial level in 35 months in May, as per the S&P Global Dubai Purchasing Managers’ Index.
