Emirates Signs Tourism Promotion Deal with The Bahamas

Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, has sealed an agreement with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of The Bahamas to promote tourism to the Caribbean archipelago.

The airline and The Bahamas’ Ministry of Tourism will embark on joint initiatives to boost visitor traffic into the islands from key markets across Emirates’ network. 

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed by HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Group Chairman and Chief Executive and HE Tony Joudi, Ambassador of The Bahamas to the UAE and the State of Qatar at the Emirates Group Headquarters. 

Also present at the signing ceremony was Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Chief Commercial Officer and Salem Obaidalla, Emirates’ Senior Vice President of Commercial Operations for the Americas.   

Spread across 16 major islands, The Bahamas boasts more than 100,000 sq. miles of the world’s clearest ocean. Its coveted beaches and pristine shorelines make The Bahamas one of the most popular tourism destinations in the Caribbean, offering a rich mix of leisure and cultural activities for visitors.  

Under the MoU, both parties will partner on joint promotional campaigns to benefit the airline and boost tourist arrivals into The Bahamas, by showcasing the destination’s appeal to visitors and holiday-makers.

The agreement will see also marketing activities including media and trade familiarization trips, in the first quarter of 2023, and the development of tailor-made tour packages, through its tour operating arm Emirates Holidays, which can be booked by customers across the airline’s vast network.

Both parties have also agreed to explore opportunities to collaborate on joint advertising campaigns to promote the West Indies destination.

Emirates currently flies to 12 points in the US in addition to Toronto. Emirates’ customers from across its global network can utilise its services to fly to US destinations such as Houston, Chicago, or Newark before connecting to Nassau on United, thanks to the partnership between both airlines.

Travellers can also fly to The Bahamas via Toronto, with Canada’s national carrier Air Canada, which activated its codeshare partnership in November.  

While the majority of visitor traffic to The Bahamas is comprised of travellers from the US and Canada, The Bahamas also attracts tourists from other international points in Emirates’ network including the United Arab Emirates, Greece, India, China, the Philippines and Singapore.

Currently Emirates customers can connect to Nassau airport on codeshare flights with Air Canada via Toronto and from major US airports including Houston, Newark, and Chicago on interline flights with United.

Emirates operates a modern fleet of Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft to a network of more than 130 destinations across 6 continents.

Thank you for sharing such a detailed review about ethiopian airlines in your post. I am an avid traveller and keep reading flight reviews to assess the options available. Your review particularly drew my attention because you have shared so many pictures to capture every aspect of the flight experience. It is a very nice effort.
