London airport gets a Burj Al Arab
24 August, 2014
Gatwick Airport, Britain’s second largest airport, has unveiled a sculpture of Dubai’s luxurious hotel Burj Al Arab, reflecting US-based Forbes magazine’s report last week when it placed the emirate among the world’s most influential cities. The sculpture, which marks Emirates’ A380 flights to Dubai this year, also reflects Dubai’s growing role in the global aviation industry – thanks to the world’s largest airline (Emirates) in terms of international passengers and the biggest airport (Dubai World Central). The 2-metre-high sculpture of Dubai’s luxurious hotel will also raise the emirate’s profile as a major tourist destination.
