The island nation has identified the UAE as a key source market
The Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) is partnering with UAE-based Dnata Travel to highlight new experiences and offers for UAE holidaymakers in 2022.
As demand for travel continues to increase, the UAE has been identified as an important market.
Dnata Travel, the UAE’s longest-standing travel provider, has revealed that bookings to Mauritius have doubled in Q1 2022, when compared to figures in Q4 2021, when Mauritius fully-reopened for tourism.
MTPA Director Arvind Bundhun commented: “We have always seen strong demand for travel to Mauritius from the UAE and it remains one of the most important source markets for us globally, while our countries share strong cultural ties.
“In 2022, we are partnering with Dnata Travel to bring our experiences closer to UAE travellers.”
Dnata Travel Leisure general manager Emily Jenkins added: “Traveller demand from the UAE to Mauritius continues to increase, and the country has quickly climbed back in to our top 10 most sought-after international destinations in terms of search and bookings since its full reopening, with bookings approaching close to pre-pandemic levels in 2022.
“Our travellers are keen to get back to nature and Mauritius offers all of the beauty that the Indian Ocean islands are known for, alongside some of the world’s most unique natural landscapes. From the dramatic peak of Le Morne, to the seven-coloured earth of Chamarel, our travel experts are ready to take travellers from the UAE on a tour of the most unique hotspots across the country.”
Dnata Travel is offering up to 50% savings on hotel stays on their Family Breaks, Romantic Escapes and All-Inclusive packages.
