New shuttle to connect Ras Al Khaimah with DXB
Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has launched a dedicated shuttle bus service from Dubai International Airport.
The new service from DXB International Airport (terminal 1 and 3) to Ras Al Khaimah is designed to help visitors enjoy a better experience of the destination as well as aid residents’ journey home.
The move comes in support of the Emirate’s aim to attract one million visitors by the end of 2018. It will also aid tour operators from key international source markets bringing holidaymakers to the destination to experience the 64km of stunning beaches, Arabian culture and adventure sports activities on Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest mountain.
The shuttle service can be booked online at www.rakshuttle.com and will take customers from DXB airport and drop them at all the main hotels in Ras Al Khaimah for an inaugural offer of 20 AED one way. Wifi, water bottles and maps will be available on board or visitors and residents can sit back and enjoy the scenic route and desert views.
Haitham Matter, CEO of RAKTDA, said: “The introduction of the RAK Shuttle is another step towards our growth target of one million visitors by the end of 2018.
“With our unique combination of authentic Arabian hospitality, pristine beaches and outdoor adventure pursuits we have plenty to offer and wanted to make it even easier for visitors to enjoy the destination.
“At just 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport, customers can sit back, relax and enjoy the view on our new shuttle service for a relaxing start to their trip.”
