Yas Island is gearing up to welcome back travellers from the GCC following the announcement of relaxed quarantine measures for fully vaccinated travellers to the UAE.

As part of its ‘welcome back’, the destination has collaborated with popular YouTuber Fahd Sal to deliver a rallying call to GCC vacationers, encouraging them to unite together and reject boring mini breaks. Sal ends with a shout out to GCC travellers of all ages and interests to demand more from their holiday and experience a fun-filled trip to Yas Island.

GCC visitors can also take advantage of a 20 per cent discount when booking directly through www.yasisland.ae. More travel packages targeting Gulf residents will launch soon.

The destination has extended its popular ‘Kids Go Free’ packages too. From now until September 30, 2021, children below the age of 12 can stay and play for free – one child for every one paying adult. This includes complimentary admission to the island’s theme parks and opportunities to stay and eat for free at the island’s diverse portfolio of hotels.

Yas Island has announced a comprehensive line-up of musical performances, sporting fixtures and live events taking place throughout the year.

They include Disney on Ice, a much-anticipated appearance by global comedy superstar Russell Peters at Etihad Arena, the UFC Abu Dhabi Showdown Week, Arijit Singh Live in Concert, and seasonal celebrations including Diwali, Saudi Arabia National Day, UAE National Day and year-end festive events.

Yas Island will also once again play host to Formula 1 World Championship 2021 and the final race of the season at Yas Marina Circuit, from December 9-12.
