Abu Dhabi wins ‘destination of the year’ award

Published on : Thursday, November 13, 2014

Image-1-300x196Abu Dhabi has won the ‘Destination of the Year’ award for the ‘City’ category in the UK’s prestigious Travel Agents Choice Awards, which are voted for by readers of one of the country’s top trade magazine Selling Travel and its partner, the leading online training provider Travel Uni .
These awards carry special significance in the British travel industry because they are the only travel honours entirely nominated and voted for by travel retailers. Moreover, the honour comes as Abu Dhabi recorded, in the first nine months of this year, a 25% increase on hotel guests from the UK, compared to the same period last year.


The UK is currently Abu Dhabi’s second largest overseas producer of hotel guests and this influx of visitors will be increasing further June when Etihad Airways, the national carrier of the United Arab Emirates, begins daily services from Edinburgh to Abu Dhabi International.
The award was presented during the World Travel Market in London at the Abu Dhabi stand by Martin Steady, Managing Director of BMI Publishing.
