Royal Jet, a UAE-headquartered international luxury executive flight services company, chaired by H.E. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, is participating at the Asia Luxury Travel Market (ALTM) in Shanghai this week, as part of its role in backing Abu Dhabi Tourism Authoritys (ADTA) strategy to promote the UAE capital as a global tourism and business hub.

ADTA is playing a major role in the development of tourism in Abu Dhabi, which is experiencing annual growth of around 17%, said Shane OHare, President and CEO, Royal Jet.

China is increasing its business activities in the MENA region through strategic investments in the property, construction and development sectors. According to industry figures bilateral trade between the UAE and China has given rise to a 10% annual increase in visitors to each country.

According to the WTO, China is the market which has probably the largest potential for future travel spends. Last year Chinese tourists accounted for over 40 million trips abroad, and this has been forecast to rise to over 100 million by 2020; so obviously its a very important market for us, Mr. OHare added.

The ADTA aims to deliver 2.7 million hotel guests annually to Abu Dhabi by 2012. Royal Jet is therefore very happy to support ADTA in its endeavours, whilst highlighting the unique benefits of private aviation.

We aim to give guests a clear understanding of how private aviation is a cost-effective and advantageous business solution, and how Royal Jet leads this market in offering a highly bespoke personalised service to our many clients, Mr. OHare said.

With the Chinese now ranked amongst the worlds highest spenders on overseas travel, we see our participation at ALTM to be crucial in attracting future business from this region. Working together with the ADTA, we see many positive potential benefits for both Royal Jet and for Abu Dhabi as a whole.
