Published on : Tuesday, July 9, 2019

On July 1st, the city of Porto – jointly with the Portuguese Embassy in the UAE, Emirates Airlines and the Ismaili Centre Dubai – arranged a presentation on Porto as a tourist and business destination on the day before the inaugural flight by Emirates Airlines between Dubai and Porto.

Ricardo Valente, deputy mayor for the City of Porto, to an audience of 180 guests, headed a presentation at the Ismaili Centre Dubai which unraveled the prime attributes as well as potential of the city as a tourist and business destination.

Councillor Valente emphasized the fact that Porto Historic Centre had been affirmed by UNESCO in 1996 as a Mankind Heritage site.  He went on to give details that this tradition and history collectively with simple and straightforward modernity, rising investment sentiment, business vitality, skilled human resources, and a strong scientific and academic community, represented the key steps for growth and success.

Portugal’s second city Porto, houses some 2.5 million residents, gave its name to Portugal. It is based on the mouth of the River Douro, whose vertical Northern slopes accommodates the oldest demarcated wine regions of the world and whose vines are accountable for Port Wine.

Emirates Airlines has plainly betted on the Dubai – Porto route for significant future tourism and business. A spokesman for the Airline said: “Travellers in northern Portugal will now have a convenient and direct flight option to our Dubai hub, from where they can seamlessly access Emirates’ global network, particularly to destinations in Africa, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. This new service also opens up a new and exciting destination for travellers from across our network.”

The allure of Porto, with its rich historic and cultural attractions, world-famous Port wine production and location on the Douro River, has seen the city enjoy an increase in visitor numbers. Our new service will, therefore, contribute further to the economic growth of Porto and the wider Northern Region,” he said
