The championship format will feature a select field of invited flying aces from around the world, including a mix of elite military teams and civilian daredevils, who will square off against each other in a three-day series of head-to-head competition heats.
TCA Abu Dhabi is teaming up with the Al Ain stakeholders and private sector bringing amazing offers and activities for an unforgettable experience in Al Ain to residents and visitors alike.
The December dates coincide with the start of regional school holidays and TCA Abu Dhabi is also aiming to create a holistic destination incentive programme for families and ticket holders, with great deals and offers across the city available to residents and visitors.
“The new championship format is sure to create tremendous interest among regional and international families and we are working closely with tourism stakeholders to convert that demand into increased visitor numbers to Al Ain. The Al Ain Experience Pass and Stay and Soar Packages being developed with local hotels, malls and attractions are attractive, high-value packages which will ensure that visitors stay longer and do more during their trip to the Oasis City for the Championship.” said Sultan Al Mutawa Al Dhaheri, Acting Executive Director, Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.
