Fujairah welcomed nearly 200 Polish tourists last month, as part of new weekly direct flights between Warsaw and Fujairah, organized by Rainbow Group.
The new route is a part of an increasing effort to encourage direct tourism to Fujairah; over the next six months the charter flight service is set to bring 4,500 people from Warsaw.
Huda Al Mesmari, a representative of Fujairah Tourism and Antiquities Authority explained their plans for strengthening this new relationship. "We will take them to see all the historical places, such as Fujairah Fort, Masafi Fort and Al Bidya Mosque," she said.
"They will also have the chance to enjoy the Hajar Mountains and unique beaches and we will take them to the Friday Market and the Cultural Village." A special itinerary has been prepared to guide the tourists through the many historical, cultural and natural sites during their visit.
As the tourists came through the Arrivals gate, young Fujairah girls performed a traditional dance to welcome them. Many of the tourists were excited and moved by the spectacle, with one woman unzipping her luggage to share a bar of chocolate with the girls.
The girls had been rehearsing their dance and patiently waiting for the visitors to come through the security clearance. The girls then took baskets of flowers round to each tourist and representatives of Fujairah Tourism and Antiquities Authority provided information packs to everyone.
It will be an interesting new development in Fujairah’s ever-growing reputation as a tourist destination, and hopefully a strengthened tie between the UAE and Poland.
