Emirates Airline wants everyone around the globe to know that Dubai is officially open.
Following the announcement that the emirate will be able to welcome tourists back from July 7, the Dubai-based airline has posted a video in partnership with Dubai Tourism honing in on the message that the city is open for business.
With a series of aerial shots taking place over Dubai Marina, Bluewaters Island and Zabeel Park the narrator begins the video by saying, “Open, now that’s a word that hasn’t been used much in the world these days, huh? Well, open is looking good for Dubai right now, and we want to tell the world about it.”

The key message throughout the video is the fact that Dubai is open to everyone – hotels, restaurants and key landmarks like the Burj Al Arab and the Burj Khalifa are just waiting for visitors.
“But this city is also open for fun,” the narrator continues. “It’s open for happy, it’s open for crazy, even the slopes are open.”
The uplifting video ends with the important message saying, “This city has its arms wide open, and they are open for you.”
