Yas Island, Abu Dhabi’s premier leisure and entertainment destination, is all set to welcome Indian travellers and is expecting positive footfalls from the South Asian country when quarantine-free international travel resumes.

Before the pandemic, Abu Dhabi registered more than 450,000 hotel guests arriving from India with an 8.2 per cent increase over 2018, the upshot showed an increase in visitors from the country.

Yas Island is ensuring high standards of safety and hygiene across its venues. It has now seen over 88 per cent of its employees working at attractions, experiences, hotels, restaurants, and retailers at Yas Island, vaccinated against Covid-19, as the island aims to be amongst one of the first fully vaccinated holiday destinations in the world.

In an effort to highlight the safety measures, Yas Island introduced numerous initiatives including the ‘#TogetherAtYas’ online platform which offers guests a guide to the public health and safety protocols on the Island, and the ‘Yas Wellness Programme’, which grants guests direct access to a dedicated team of Yas Wellness ambassadors.

The Wellness Ambassadors are a team of specially trained individuals who are able to answer guests’ queries on the health and safety measures in place. Visitors can contact them via phone, social media, WhatsApp and email from 0800 hours to 1700 hours UAE time, daily.

Yas Island has received the coveted WTTC ‘Safe Travels’ stamp.
