Fujairah airport will sign deal to fly in German tourists

June 6 - Fujairah Airport is close to signing an agreement with charter airlines to fly German tourists directly into the northern emirate.  A spokesman for Fujairah International Airport said “We’re talking with two operators and planning to sign a contract in the next few weeks.”  The flights, which are expected to start in the middle of October, will give the Fujairah economy a boost. Fujairah has many waterfront hotels that rely on visits from GCC residents or international tourists arriving from Dubai International Airport.

Fujairah airport flights currently consist of about 90pc cargo, mostly for export or re-export.  Efforts to improve transit links to Fujairah are underway and will help support the new service. A new federal motorway between Fujairah and Dubai should cut the travel time by 45 minutes.  Hotel officials say a new 77 kilometer six lane motorway that cuts directly through the Hajar Mountains will put the emirate on a footing with Ras al Khaimah as a northern emirate tourist destination.
