Abu Dhabi and Etihad Brief Irish Media

Nabeel Mahmoud Al Zarouni from the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority joined forces with Beatrice Cosgrove from Etihad Airways in Dublin to brief Irish media on the latest tourism developments in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates.

The new airport terminal is well advanced and will open in 2016 according to Beatrice Cosgrove from Etihad Airways.

There are a number of new attractions  in the pipeline such as a Guggenheim Museum and Construction of the eagerly-anticipated Louvre Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island is well underway. Born of an intergovernmental agreement between the UAE and France in 2007, Louvre Abu Dhabi is set to change the emirate’s cultural landscape and become the first universal museum in the Arab world.

Also the new cruise terminal  is getting ready to receive passengers. Celebrity Constellation, co-flagship of Celebrity Cruises’ 11-strong fleet of luxury cruise ships, is to homeport in Abu Dhabi’s Zayed Port from November 2016. The 2,170-guest vessel will be the first ship to make the Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal its home, adding momentum to the emirate’s drive to become a world-class cruise destination. Between November 2016 and the end of January 2017, Celebrity Constellation is expected to bring 15,000 guests to Abu Dhabi on six luxury cruises of the Arabian Gulf and Indian Ocean.
