Middle East arrivals soar as recovery continues

Wednesday, July 26, 2023


The latest air ticketing data paints a “positive picture” for tourism in the Middle East, according to a data.

New data shows that tourism in the region is up 12%, led by Oman, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, all of which outstripped the regional average of growth for inbound traffic.

At the current rate, most destinations in the region are set to surpass last year’s numbers.

Juan Gomez, head of a company said that in 2023, the Middle East’s impressive tourism performance continues, with a projected increase in international arrivals compared to the previous year in the remaining six months.

Most destinations are on track to match or exceed their 2022 numbers, a testament to the relentless efforts of local authorities in transforming the region into a global tourism powerhouse.

While destinations like Qatar may not reach the exceptional volumes of 2022 due to the FIFA World Cup’s influence, neighbouring countries continue to bask in the afterglow of last year’s sporting spectacle.

Countries such as Jordan and Egypt show forward booking levels lower than the previous year, but this situation remains dynamic, and an upward trend could materialize as the year progresses.
