Emaar to build ME’s largest Chinatown in Dubai

Emaar has announced a landmark development that is expected to further strengthen UAE-China relations, coinciding with the historic visit of President Xi Jinping of China to the UAE.
To honor Chinese expatriates in the UAE and further bolster business ties with China, Emaar will develop the Middle East’s largest Chinatown within the retail district of Dubai Creek Harbor, its six-square-kilometer mega-development, only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the Burj Khalifa.
“The retail precinct will occupy a central location within Dubai Creek Harbor — a destination which will be home to the world’s new icon, Dubai Creek Tower, and encompass vibrant lifestyle elements. Set by the Dubai Creek waterway, elegantly designed homes in Dubai Creek Harbor will offer spectacular views of the city’s dramatic skyline, the waterfront and the Ras Al-Khor Wildlife Sanctuary — home to over 450 animal species and migratory birds, including pink flamingos,” Emaar said in a press release.

Flynas, KAIA gear up to serve pilgrims with a smile

In cooperation with King Abdul Aziz International Airport (KAIA), Saudi low-cost carrier Flynas has launched the “Smile for a More Beautiful Hajj” initiative. The campaign aims to motivate the airport’s employees from both the government and private sectors to establish better interactions with pilgrims and improve the quality of their job performance.
Employees who perform well in terms of providing services to the pilgrims, rapid delivery and friendliness, will be presented with free Flynas tickets to any local or international destinations.
The most deserving employees will be nominated through conducting unannounced tours during the arrival and departure periods, and analyzing employee interaction via surveillance cameras.
Essam bin Fuad Noor, director general of King Abdul Aziz International Airport, said that the initiative aims to urge and encourage the airport’s employees from both government and private sectors, to enhance the culture of smiling and hospitality.
He said the initiative is in line with the directives of the government, which is committed to supporting all such programs that serve the pilgrims. The program also enjoys “unlimited support” from the president of the General Authority of Civil Aviation, Noor added.
“Such initiatives will create positive impressions for pilgrims, especially because the airport is the first destination of most pilgrims. We trust the Saudi youth and their ability to create this positive impression and hope they will strive to carry out their duties in cooperation with Flynas,” he said.
Ahmed Ibrahim Al-Musained, director general of corporate communications and spokesperson for Flynas, said: “This initiative is part of our social responsibility to serve pilgrims and visitors by redoubling our efforts and helping pilgrims with a smile and distinctive service.”
Al-Musained added: “This initiative will motivate service providers at the airport to reflect the bright and honorable image of the Kingdom, of goodness and kindness, and highlight our authentic hospitality by providing pilgrims with amenities and warm gestures before they return to their home country with the best impression of the Kingdom, government and citizens. By doing so, this initiative will convey the authentic Arab and Islamic values in hospitality, and give pilgrims the most beautiful memories, as serving pilgrims is a great honor for every Saudi citizen.”
“Smile for a More Beautiful Hajj” campaign is part of Flynas’ “Your Smile” initiative.
