July 7th, 2013 Rotana Jet, the growing airline from the UAE, is to increase capacity on its services to Sir Bani Yas Island from August 1st, 2013, with the addition of two more flights per week, the airline announced today.

The flights, which will operate between Al Bateen Executive Airport in Abu Dhabi and Sir Bani Yas Island on Sundays and Wednesdays, will increase the total number of weekly flights serving Sir Bani Yas to five.

“This increase in capacity in just one year of our operation to Sir Bani Yas Island, where we flew over 10,000 people, demonstrates Rotana Jet’s continuing commitment to the destination.” said Rajendran Vellapalath, Rotana Jet’s Commercial and Planning Director. “These additional flights will enable more people to visit the island, whether to spend a day exploring the Arabian Wildlife Park, experience many of the leisure activities in the island or for overnight stays,” he added.

The new flights will be operated with Embraer jet aircraft in a single class configuration, adding 250 seats each way per week on the route.

Sultan Al Mahmoud, TDIC’s Executive Director of Strategic Performance, said, “Rotana Jet’s additional flights to Sir Bani Yas come at exiting times for TDIC, with the opening of new developments on the island, including the new Anantara Sir Bani Yas Al Yamm Villa Resort which was launched last week.

World record hopes for Emirati women’s giant mat

Seven Emirati housewives worked to preserve UAE culture and heritage

Dubai: Seven Emirati housewives got together and made a giant traditional mat from date palm tree leaves, as part of their efforts to keep this symbol of the UAE’s culture alive.
The seven women, who are all members of the women committee of Dibba Al Fujairah’s Culture, Theatre and Arts Centre, said it took them around six months to complete the project as they worked on it whenever they got some spare time out of their busy daily routines.
The mat is made of date palm tree fronds and is 24m and 30cm long. Its width is 74cm.

The traditional mat, known in the UAE as a ‘Haseer’, was widely used to furnish floors of houses, mosques and roof tops in the past. They are still used today, but mostly for outings, especially in the desert. The giant mat will be on display at the first Liwa/Ajman Date Festival which begins tomorrow and will continue until Friday, July 29.

Saif Al Dahmani, Head of Al Nakheel Foundation for Heritage and Handcrafts, is the one who suggested the idea of making the giant mat and is now working on promoting it. He is even trying to find a sponsor for the project to help get the mat registered with the Guinness World Records (GWR).

“We already exhibited the mat at the Liwa Date Festival which ended last week and we got a good response from visitors who were amazed at seeing the mat and appreciated the hard work that went into it,” he told Gulf News.

Common people

Al Dahmani said he chose the traditional mat because it is part of the country’s heritage and something that was used widely in the past, especially by common people. “I am basically coordinating with the women committee, as I am exhibiting this mat at various exhibitions,” he said. “I also promote the handmade products by these women on various occasions,” he added.
Mariam Juma, the general supervisor, who oversaw the project, said she feels proud of the women who dedicated time out of their busy lives to this project. She said the seven women spent six months first, weaving and then sewing the mat. “When we suggested to them the idea, we did not set a timeframe because we knew it is difficult for them to dedicated certain hours to this because of their other commitments.
“This is the first time the women committee of Dibba Al Fujairah has taken up such a project and we are happy it has seen the light,” she said.

Aisha Hamdan, one of the seven women who worked on the mat, told Gulf News they all took part in the project because they wanted to do something that represented the culture and heritage of the UAE as a country.
“This mat does not only represent us women from Fujairah, but the entire UAE,” she said.
Sindiyah Al Rahma, a 50-year-old housewife and mother of nine, said she spent her time working on the mat whenever she was free from her house responsibilities.
“I used to spend around one to two hours whenever I had some time on hand because I also take care of my house and children,” she said.
Fatima Hassan, a mother of six, said weaving and sewing has always been her passion.
“I learned it when I was a child and still love doing it. So the idea of making a giant mat putting our experience into it was very exciting to me,” she said.
Art of weaving
Halima Ali, another 50-year-old housewife and mother of nine, said she learned the art of weaving and sewing from her grandmother and mother and she still does it. She is also now passing on the skills she learned to her daughters.
“We have to pass on the experience of making these traditional handcrafts to the younger generations because they are part of our identity and we have to preserve it in a way or the other,” she said.

At a glance

Work on the giant mat started on December 1, 2010 and was completed on May 27, 2011.
The giant mat will be on display at the first Liwa/Ajman Date Festival, which starts tomorrow and runs until Friday, at Ajman Festival City, near Ajman City Centre.

Is Investing in Abu Dhabi Real Estate is as same as investing in Dubai?

Dubai is playing as front position player among all other UAE property sectors such as Abu Dhabi real estate and the like. As a first Emirate offering the opportunity to buy properties to immigrants is capitalizing on a brand new source of overseas investments. Some experts have the clear opinions about the Abu Dhabi real estate that as they are seeing the increasing demand of apartments in Abu Dhabi for purchase and rent, Abu Dhabi may become next Dubai in coming couple of years.

Since last two years Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Abu Dhabi real estate have been the great focus of neighboring Emirates. Abu Dhabi real estate has been getting more importance as it is the capital of UAE and the best part is the wealthiest Emirate. As economy is going up and investor welcoming-policies are being implemented for Abu Dhabi Real estate, it will be a very promising and attractive prospect for both industry and tourism. Some of these policies which will boom up the demand of Apartments in Abu Dhabi for rent and purchase are:

Increasing expenditure on Abu Dhabi real estate by governmentCurrently the Abu Dhabi government is spending over $ 6 billion for development and expanding facilities at Abu Dhabi international airport. The forecast for the year 2015 is that there will be around 3 million tourist mark as an outcome of noteworthy investment into the travel and tour industry, one of the big examples is the Ferrari World.

Increase in population can also raise the demands for purchasing and renting Apartments in Abu Dhabi The significant numbers of new employment opportunities have been expected to be produced within the Emirate. This is the effect of the surplus investment done by the Government on economic and tourist infrastructure and within the next ten years it is expected that the population will be increased by 100 %.

Between years 2001-2003 the population increased by 16%. In spite of this the rising demand for Dubai, Abu Dhabi real estate and other regions of Emirate is relatively low. It has only in the just allowed non UAE nationals for apartments on rent in Abu Dhabi and Dubai or for purchase on 99 year lease basis. Therefore, Abu Dhabi real estate is seeing a noteworthy increase in rates within Emirate. There is an expectation of 30% raise in some cases within the last year.

The overall outlook of Abu Dhabi real estate seems to be very prospecting with current scarcity in supply of homes, offices and apartments in Abu Dhabi for rent and purchase. A two bed townhouse in Abu Dhabi can be purchased on resale from as little as AED 569.41 per sq. foot. This is the same that had happened in the early stages of the booming Dubai real estate sector. With rates for Abu Dhabi real estate still low and high demand early investors of Dubai property will get another opportunity to build more profits by investing in homes, offices and apartments in Abu Dhabi and if this is true, then Abu Dhabi real estate will be next big thing after Dubai for all real estate investors.
