The current airfares are still more expensive than they were two years ago when the COVID-19 pandemic was at its height and many were reluctant to travel out of fear of becoming trapped abroad.

Ahead of the festival holidays, people have booked hotels and air tickets, with some hotels in Bur Dubai claiming that 100 percent of bookings have been done on festival holidays.
India is one of the major source markets for the UAE’s travel and tourism industry.
