Finland Welcomes More UAE Visitors

Visit Finland revealed that there was an increase visitor numbers from the UAE, after the government set in force a new marketing campaign aimed specifically at Middle East tourists.

Teemu Ahola, representative, Visit Finland, explained that the increase in UAE visitors is in part due to an increase in direct flights to Helsinki.

Finnair, the national carrier of Finland, committed to repeating its Dubai – Helsinki route later this year, flying between October and March 2019, while Turkish Airlines has a route between the UAE and Finland via Istanbul.

Finland has long been a popular destination within the European market however, Visit Finland is now keen to explore other markets and have identified the Middle East where the UAE, followed by Saudi Arabia, already make up the bulk of GCC visitors.

“We have returned with a dedicated marketing campaign for the Middle East and we are showcasing some of the leading hotels, resorts and DMCs Finland has to offer in a bid to pique the interest of the market even further,” added Ahola.
