The upcoming Eid al-Fitr holiday in the UAE has led to a surge in travel demand, causing airfares to rise across the country. The four-day holiday is expected to begin on May 2nd and continue until May 5th, giving UAE residents an opportunity to travel and spend time with family and friends.
According to travel industry experts, the increase in demand for air travel during the Eid al-Fitr holiday is a common occurrence. Many people take advantage of the long weekend to travel both within the UAE and abroad.
As a result, airlines have raised their fares to meet the increased demand for travel. The rise in airfares has been particularly significant for popular destinations such as Egypt, Jordan, and Turkey.
Despite the higher prices, many UAE residents are still expected to travel during the holiday period. The UAE government has also taken steps to encourage domestic tourism, with several initiatives designed to promote local attractions and encourage residents to explore their own country.
For those who do decide to travel during the Eid al-Fitr holiday, experts recommend booking flights as early as possible to secure the best prices. They also advise travelers to be flexible with their travel dates and to consider alternative destinations if prices to popular destinations are too high.
The surge in travel demand during the Eid al-Fitr holiday is expected to have a positive impact on the UAE’s tourism industry, which has been severely impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. With many people looking for a break after months of lockdowns and restrictions, the holiday is a much-needed opportunity to rejuvenate and explore new places.
