The Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD) has announced that the emirate earned AED200 million in tourism revenues from a total of 272,021 visitors in the first half of 2016.

Tourism revenues from April to June reached AED92 million, 11 percent higher compared to the same period in 2015. The total number of guests for the period reached 129,617, up from 119,376 in 2015.

The ATDD said in a statement that three furnished apartments were added to the inventory of establishments during the three month period.

Occupancy rate for the second quarter was reported at 63 percent for hotels while hotel apartments witnessed 68 percent occupancy rate.

Faisal Al Nuaimi, General Manager of the ATDD, in a press release, said: "The increase for the second quarter of 2016 may be minimal but it is still a significant increase because when combined with the revenue of the first quarter, the result is very encouraging.

"Factors such as the fall in oil prices, currency fluctuations and geopolitical situation are impacting industry performance but as the report indicated, the numbers of visitors are picking up which means tourists view the UAE as a safe destination with our stable and economic environment and a diverse range of offerings that attract both existing and potential markets."

Guest nights for the second quarter reached 293,512 with majority of the guests staying at five- and four-star hotels and superior and standard hotel apartments.

Local tourists still top the emirate's guests followed by visitors from Asia and Africa, other Arab countries and GCC nationals. Europeans, Americans and Russian visitors comprised more than 30,000 of the total guests.

The ATDD said Ajman has 39 establishments with total 3,392 hotel rooms and units and 5,737 beds. - Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395298653835.html
