South Africa continues to be a top business destination among Arab travellers, based on its strong economic and trade ties it has with the Middle East region according to Thierry Bertin, vice president sales and marketing, Hyatt International South West Asia.
The recent increase in the number of flights from destinations across the Middle East to Johannesburg has led to a demand for world class business hotels.
