Dubai is open for business and tourism, and Emirates wants the world to know it. Throughout the winter travel season, the airline will run a multi-million dollar global campaign to promote Destination Dubai, including advertising spots and key partnerships to provide travelers with extra value.
Emirates’ multi-channel advertising campaign, which showcases Dubai’s diverse attractions to those seeking a winter getaway, will initially launch in the U.K. and key European markets on television, online and social media channels.
His Excellency Helal Saeed Almarri (pictured right), Director General, Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism) says, “The remarkable vision and leadership of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, have been a huge source of inspiration to us all, leading to the decisive and efficient management of the pandemic and ultimately paving the way for the reopening of the city to tourists in July. Since then, Dubai has seen a steady increase in visitors, underpinned by comprehensive measures to safeguard the well-being of our guests. Going into 2021, Dubai will continue to strengthen its offering for business and leisure visitors with the launch of new facilities and attractions, as well as the return of world-class conferences, events and festivals including the iconic Dubai Shopping Festival, and the first ever World Expo to be held in this region. We are pleased to work closely with our strategic partner Emirates on its latest global campaign, as we look forward to welcoming international travelers to make Dubai their destination of choice this winter.”
Adnan Kazim (pictured left), Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer, says, “Dubai remains one of the most attractive global destinations, and we see strong interest and steady growth in bookings to Dubai from across our network and particularly from Europe. With our latest campaign, we aim to reignite the magic of travel and put Dubai foremost in the minds of people around the world seeking a winter getaway.”
The airline will also create bespoke pages on emirates.com for its campaign, so travelers can easily find the latest information on travel to Dubai, including entry requirements and how they can continue to enjoy indoor and outdoor experiences in Dubai with health and safety protocols in place.
Emirates continues to lead the industry when it comes to providing customers with travel support and assurance. In addition to bio-safety measures at every step of the travel journey, Emirates is the first and only airline to offer all its customers multi-risk travel insurance and COVID-19 medical cover, free of cost.
