Holiday destinations in East Africa provide an excellent option for Middle Eastern travellers seeking a short break destination,” said Nathan Adams, product development manager, Dnata Holidays.
“In 2007 demand for holidays was driven by customers looking for one main long haul holiday and four short breaks per year. A short break is a trip of three to five days with a flight time of less than four hours, so East Africa fits perfectly into this category.”
Dnata customers were opting for short breaks to the Maldives, Seychelles, Mauritius, Jordan, Oman and Cyprus in particular.
