The inaugural direct flight, carrying 185 passengers, from Wroclaw to Ras Al Khaimah arrived yesterday at 9 PM to a warm welcome from officials of the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) and Ras Al Khaimah International Airport. Launched by Enter Air- a charter airline of reputed tour operator TUI Poland- the new route will be served once a week every Sunday, providing Polish travellers a direct and more accessible access to Ras Al Khaimah, one of the fastest-growing destinations in the Middle East.
Ras Al Khaimah’s attractiveness as a destination for international travellers continues to be strong, accounting for 62% of overall visitors in the first three quarters of 2018. As part of its Destination 2019 strategy, RAKTDA has significantly increased its promotions in Europe showcasing the diversity of the destination to core audiences in key markets.
Commenting on the launch of the new route, Haitham Mattar, Chief Executive Officer of RAKTDA said: “We are delighted to welcome the first direct flight from Wroclaw to Ras Al Khaimah. Over the last few years, Poland has become one of the strongest international tourism source markets to RAK, and therefore this step is an important strategic development that will further facilitate the successful bilateral ties between both countries. Moreover, this new addition expands the network of Ras Al Khaimah International Airport even further, reflecting the strong global confidence in the Emirate’s travel and tourism industry. Europe is a key market for the Emirate, and we are very confident that this new route will be extremely successful in increasing visitor arrivals to the Emirate even further.”
“We are pleased to welcome Enter Air to the growing list of international carriers at Ras Al Khaimah International Airport. We strongly believe that such partnerships will continue to augment the Emirate’s connectivity with all major source markets, as we remain committed to the expansion of new long-haul routes to meet growing international tourist arrivals,” added Sanjay Khanna, Chief Executive Officer of Ras Al Khaimah International Airport.
One of Ras Al Khaimah’s key growth milestones in 2018 was the launch of Jebel Jais Flight- the world’s longest zipline on Jebel Jais, the highest mountain in the UAE. This put Ras Al Khaimah on the global map as it broke the world record and strengthened the emirate’s credentials as the fastest growing adventure tourism destination in the region. Another key factor in the growing popularity of the emirate was a calendar of world-class events, and the increase in international partnerships with travel trade through the opening of overseas offices and a series of trade roadshows throughout the year.
Ras Al Khaimah International Airport now welcomes direct charter and scheduled services from various global destinations including Cairo, Islamabad, Jeddah, Lahore, Peshawar, Calicut, Katowice, Poznan, Warsaw, Luxemburg, Prague and Moscow in addition to Wroclaw.
