“The launch of a full programme of Abu Dhabi Summer Season events has helped underpin these figures,” said Saif Saeed Ghobash, director general, TCA Abu Dhabi.

“July’s growth in visitors through China, UK, as well as USA, as well as the month’s UAE pengunjung arrivals total of 138,000 is actually encouraging as well as compares favourably when adjusted to take into account the Eid A Fitr boost contained inside July 2016 figures.”

Guests through the UK remain strong, placing the market third, with 136,000 Britons arriving, reflecting a 5.5 per cent growth rate, with British guests continuing to be one of the longest stayers, staying on average, 3.7 nights.
