Abu Dhabi launches Go Safe program across hotels and venues

Abu Dhabi has launched a new Go Safe Certification that aims to enforce global standards of safety and cleanliness at hotels, attractions, and venues across the emirate.

Hotels within the emirate have been undergoing rigorous sanitation from the beginning of March, leading to the reopening of the properties after they receive clearance and certification from DCT Abu Dhabi.

“As we look forward to reviving tourism in the capital, we aim to not only meet, but to exceed all existing international benchmarks through a strategy that promotes consumer safety in every step of the way; from the moment they land at our airports to their eventual departure,” said Ali Hassan Al Shaiba, Executive Director of Tourism and Marketing at DCT Abu Dhabi.

“Being the first of its kind in the region, the programme is the initial step in our new tourism approach – one that puts consumer priorities and concerns at the forefront. We will be announcing other initiatives and programmes that were created with the help of the Abu Dhabi government to complement this strategy and ensure the safety of our visitors and residents alike.”

W Hotel is the first hotel in the emirate to be certified. The certification will move on to cover six additional hotels, four attractions, two theme parks, two malls and a public beach.

Go Safe is then set to be rolled out across all attractions within the capital including malls, restaurants, theme parks and other public spaces.
