April 10, 2023
Travel from Israel to Dubai has jumped 212 percent in a year.
Israel is currently Dubai’s fastest growing tourism source market.
Out of the top 20 source markets coming to Dubai, so far in 2023, travellers from Israel are increasing the most, with 85,000 visiting in the first two months of the year.
That’s according to the latest data from Dubai Tourism, which shows a 212 percent increase year-on-year, the biggest rise of any country.
It puts Israel as Dubai’s eighth-largest tourism-driver, ahead of France, Kuwait and Egypt.
Abu Dhabi tourism figures
For the same period in Abu Dhabi, Israel became the 11th-largest source market, with 9,000 checking into its hotels. That put the country 1,000 guests short of tying with KSA, Oman and France to become a top 10 market for Abu Dhabi. Even though the figure falls short of double-digits, it is still a 84 percent YOY increase.
