Dubai’s flagship carrier Emirates Airlines is expecting to receive an average of 20,000 to 30,000 visitors every month from the United States during the Dubai Expo 2020, Emirates Airlines chief commercial officer Adnan Kazim said.
He said: “The US is expected to play a key role during the Expo Dubai, and based on the trends we are seeing today, we expect 20,000 to 30,000 tourists from the United States each month during the Expo. We are looking at building our capacity from the US and our objective is to make that happen as quickly as possible.”
He said: “Emirates has already recovered 50 per cent of the pre-pandemic tourism numbers from the United States and has welcomed bookings from 14,000 tourists in the last two months.”
Pre- pandemic, Emirates was ferrying 55,000 tourists from the United States into the UAE every month, explained Kazim while speaking to the media ahead of Emirates launching its first-ever passenger service to Florida, Miami.
