UAE Based Dnata Travel Join Hands with Spain Tourism Authority


One of the GCC's oldest travel agencies, Dnata Travel, has teamed up with TURESPAA, Spain's national tourist organization, to offer travelers in all GCC nations options like no other. During a period of strong demand, the alliance will give customers access to a wide range of travel products and services throughout Spain.

According to TURESPAA, in the first quarter of 2023, there were 15% more tourists from the GCC market than in the corresponding period the previous year. In order to appeal to tourists looking for fresh and distinctive travel experiences, the tourism authority hopes to draw even more GCC visitors this summer and throughout the year by highlighting a diverse selection of lesser-known places throughout the nation.

Meerah Ketait, Head of Retail and Leisure UAE at dnata Travel, commented: "We have seen a significant increase in bookings to Spain by GCC travellers across and beyond the UAE. The Balearic Islands of Mallorca and Ibiza are trending, offering travellers world-class resorts alongside beautiful beaches. The Canary Islands have also become increasingly popular, providing ideal destinations for nature lovers with hiking trails that wind through ancient forests and volcanic landscapes. The north of Spain, also known as ‘Green Spain’ where incredible nature meets unforgettable gastronomy, is also gaining traction and curiosity from this region."

Daniel Rosado, Director at TURESPAÑA, added: "The UAE has always been one of the top tourism markets for Spain, and we expect 2023 to be the best year ever for tourism from across the GCC. There has been a significant increase in air connectivity in recent years, while our countries have been fostering cultural exchanges and collaborations. These initiatives include art exhibitions, music festivals, and educational programs, which help promote tourism and mutual understanding."
