Official visitor data from Maldives Immigration has revealed that between reopening on 15th July 2020 and 30th September 2020, 2,823 Emirati travellers opted to holiday on a beautiful Maldives island, followed closely by travellers from Russia (2,540), the US (1,798), the UK (1,596) and Spain (1,041).

 

For Dnata Travel, the UAE’s longest standing travel provider, holidays to the Maldives have proved most popular for travellers on the whole this summer, for both UAE nationals and residents, with the trend looking set to continue throughout the remainder of this year with bookings for UAE National Day, winter breaks, and beyond.

 

Emily Jenkins, Head of Dnata Travel Leisure UAE, said: "The Maldives, conveniently accessible with just a four-hour flight from Dubai, and which boasts a variety of dreamy private island locations and world-class resorts with high standards of health and safety, is providing the ultimate getaway and change of scenery for travellers at this time.

 

"With in-resort PCR testing offered across the islands, easy transfers, and private resorts operating at limited capacity, the Maldives is leading the way in offering visitors a smooth, safe travel experience, in the ultimate paradise setting.

 

"In response to changing traveller requirements, the dnata Travel team is working hard in partnership with top Maldives resorts to offer our customers a stress-free holiday experience including transfers from the airport to the resort of their choice, PCR testing facilities available in-resort, and travel insurance, all as part of their holiday package."
