Total tourism revenues in Ajman registered a significant increase of 47 percent in Q3 2015, compared with the same period in 2014, statistics show.

According to the statistics issued by the Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD), total tourism revenues in Ajman amounted to AED80.05 million during July, August and September.

ATDD attributed this increase in revenues to the improved occupancy rates in the emirate’s hotels, the average room rental rate, in addition to the increasing number of hotel rooms and apartments in Ajman.

In a related context, there was a slight decrease in the number of visitors to Ajman, but the number of hotel nights increased by 49 per cent, from 201,596 nights in 2014 to 300,948 in 2015.

Visitors from the GCC region accounted for the majority of tourists to the emirate, followed by travellers from Asia, Africa, Europe, Russia and the two Americas.
