The Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority (MTPA) is announcing a partnership with UAE-based dnata Travel to unveil new experiences and tailor-made offers to Mauritius for UAE holiday makers in 2022, with travel to the island nation in demand across the emirates.
Experts at dnata Travel – the UAE’s longest-standing travel provider –reveal that travel bookings to the Indian Ocean island have doubled in 2022 so far, in comparison to booking figures in Q4 2021, when Mauritius fully-reopened for tourism post the pandemic, following a partial re-opening in the summer.
As demand for travel continues to increase, representatives from the official tourism authority of Mauritius have identified UAE as an important market.
Arvind Bundhun, Director at Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, 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.”
Emily Jenkins, General Manager of dnata Travel Leisure, added: “Traveller demand from the UAE to Mauritius continues to increase, and the country has quickly climbed back in to our top ten 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.”
Working in partnership with the MTPA, the dnata Travel has sourced holiday offers with up to 50% savings on hotel stays for ‘Family Breaks’, ‘Romantic Escapes’ and ‘All-Inclusive Offers’, all now available for bookings.
Arvind Bundhun concluded: “Mauritius is synonymous with pristine beaches but we have an amazing variety of outdoor tourism options yet ‘to be discovered’ and we want to take you there.”
