Maldives among dnata Travel’s top 5 holiday hotspots of 2022


Maldives is one of the Top 5 vacation spots for summer 2022, according to dnata Travel, the oldest travel agency in the UAE. Turkey, Thailand, Mauritius, the Maldives, and Switzerland top the list of most popular vacation spots of 2022.

Meerah Ketait, Head of Retail and Leisure UAE at dnata Travel, commented: “International travel has strongly rebounded over summer. Last year, the Maldives, Turkey and Switzerland made up over 40% of our total bookings across June to September 2021, while during the same time period in 2022, more than 25 destinations made up 40% of our overall bookings. Many additional destinations have opened for tourism, and the pent-up demand is driving travellers to explore more of the world, including lesser known places and varied locations across popular hotspots.”

Thailand recorded the biggest growth as a destination based on the number of holiday bookings between June and September 2022, compared to the same time period last year.

Asia will likely continue to be a popular vacation destination, according to the experts of dnata Travel, who closely follow industry trends. Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore all exhibit evidence of strong demand. As the holiday season draws near, interest in traveling to Europe’s most popular holiday markets is growing, especially in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
