London voted No.1 holiday hotspot for UAE residents

BA survey reveals one in four residents favour the British capital

London voted No.1 holiday hotspot for UAE residents

London has been voted the number one holiday choice among UAE residents this year, according to the results of a survey carried out by British Airways.

The British capital, known for its ancient and contemporary landmarks like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, and London Eye, was favoured by one in four of residents who took part in the research.

The second most popular destination voted was Miami, having received 18 percent of the votes, followed by the Almafi Coast in Italy, which garnered 17 percent of votes.

In unison with the survey, British Airways is currently offering discounted fares on flights from the UAE to London, with air fares starting from AED2,675 ($728) per person for a one way ticket.

“We fly daily between Dubai and Abu Dhabi to London offering our customers excellent connections to 188 destinations across our network,” said Paolo De Renzis, Head of Middle East, Africa and Central Asia Sales for British Airways.

“We hope this latest offer that allows travel until the end of March next year, encourages even more people living in the UAE to explore their favourite destination or visit somewhere new,” he added.
