The ministry of culture and tourism of Azerbaijan is offering special tourist packages to GCC residents during the Eid Al-Fitr holidays.
The offer starts at $558 (AED2050) per person for a stay in a 4 star hotel for 3 nights and 4 days, inclusive of visa and ticket costs. Another package starts at $803 (AED2950) which includes accommodation for 5 nights and 6 days at a luxury resort, visa and ticket costs.
The Government of Azerbaijan is developing the country as a tourist destination with the topmost priority. According to the World Council of Travel and Tourism, the contribution of tourism to the country’s GDP was 5.2 billion (8% of GDP) over the past year, and this is expected to increase by 8.6% this year and by 4.8% in the next ten years. Over 2.2 million international tourists are expected to visit the country this year, and this number is likely to increase up to 3.1 million by 2023.
“Recent years have witnessed a significant growth rate in the number of tourists coming to Azerbaijan from the GCC countries. We are trying to create special offers such as ‘Eid offers’ to attract visitors from this region by taking into account their travel interests,” says Dayana Persan, general manager, Atlantis Holidays, the official representative office for the ministry of culture and tourism of Azerbaijan in this region.
