Abu Dhabi targets 3,000 extra rooms for F1 debut


by Andy Sambidge

Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) said on Thursday that the UAE capital's accommodation stock would increase by more than 3,000 rooms in 2009.

The expansion in tourism facilities will be completed in preparation for November's inaugural Etihad 2009 Formula 1 Grand Prix, officials confirmed.

Despite the global economic uncertainty, the authority said that all previously announced tourism projects would be delivered according to plan this year.
"The additional accommodation coupled with the new events provides Abu Dhabi with a competitive edge in an environment when many other destinations are feeling the impact of the current economic downturn," said Nasser Al Reyami, ADTA's director - Tourism Standards Division.

He told news agency WAM that hotels across the emirate, the largest of the seven which make up the UAE, continue to achieve average occupancy rates of more than 80 percent.

He was commenting as Abu Dhabi participated in ITB Berlin, one of the world's largest travel shows being held in Germany.
