Sharjah National Travel and Tourist Agency (SNTTA) yesterday announced a three year growth strategy for the Abu Dhabi market.  SNTTA said there is a projected increase in demand for outbound tourism in the UAE, and they are ready to capitalize on that in niche markets like medical tourism, golf tourism, cruises, and other leisure packages. 

SNTTA has 18 travel and tour outlets in Dubai, Sharjah, and Northern Emirates, and over the past five years recorded a year on year growth of more than 25%.  SNTTA said in a statement that based on an in-house feasibility study, they expect strong year on year growth for the next several years. The SNTTA statement noted that Abu Dhabi’s moves to create world class infrastructure and iconic projects like the Louver Abu Dhabi will help boost inbound tourism.
