This strategic move aims to further strengthen Amadeus’ commitment to the UAE and particularly to the burgeoning travel sector in Dubai and the Northern Emirates.
Ernesto Sanchez Beaumont, Managing Director of Amadeus Gulf, expressed his enthusiasm and said, “We are excited to mark the inauguration of our new Amadeus Gulf Office and are eager to enhance the level of service we provide from this new, dynamic location. Dubai is a lighthouse to attract tourism and the new office is a state-of-the-art space for clients and visitors who support this growth for this city.”
Next month marks the 21st anniversary of Amadeus Gulf’s presence in the UAE, initially opening its doors in Abu Dhabi. Recognizing the UAE as a hub for some of the busiest airports, Amadeus is committed to complementing Dubai’s rapid growth in the travel sector.

The company has invested in climate-tech companies like Chooose and CAPHENIA and aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2025’ and locally in Dubai we get involved in initiatives regularly with partners to support the environment,” added Beaumont.
According to The World Travel & Tourism Council’s 2023 Economic Impact Research, the tourism sector is set to contribute AED 180.6 billion to the UAE economy by the end of 2023. “At Amadeus, we will continue to support the local industry from our Dubai office as we have successfully been doing in the region for the past 21 years. Upgrading our office will enable even greater collaboration between Amadeus, our customers, and our local partners in the UAE,” concluded Beaumont.
