Emirates to promote Mauritius across the Gulf
Emirates Airline is taking a tour of the gulf to promote Mauritius as a top tourist destination.

Working in conjunction with the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, the airliner headed to Kuwait on March 1st and then went on to Jeddah via Riyadh. The duo will then jet off again to arrive in Dubai tomorrow (March 5th) for the final leg of the whistle-stop tour of the region.

Dubai and the other three cities have been especially selected because of the opportunity to develop strong tourism ties with Mauritius.

"The Middle East is a prosperous market and Mauritius already welcomes numerous Arab families who come on vacation in the island," said Xavier-Luc Duval, vice-prime minister and minister of tourism, leisure and external communications.

He added that the island is proving particularly popular with Emiratis who have a strong purchasing power and expect ultimate luxury in their travel destinations.

Emirates Airline has also recently announced an expansive growth strategy for 2009 that will secure its position in many new markets.ADNFCR-2019-ID-19057485-ADNFCR
