Now you can take a shuttle bus from Dubai airport to Ras Al Khaimah.

It's the latest move to boost tourism and make it easier for people to visit the emirate.

The service costs Dh20 each way, can be booked online at www.rakshuttle.com and will take customers from terminals 1 and 3 at Dubai International and drop them at all the main hotels in RAK. WiFi, water bottles and maps will be available on board.

The move was announced on Monday and comes in support of the emirate’s aim to attract a million visitors by the end of 2018. It will also help tour operators by bringing holidaymakers to the destination to experience the 64 kilometres of stunning beaches, Arabian culture and adventure sports activities on Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest mountain.

In other recent moves designed to put RAK firmly on the tourism map, a world record-breaking zipline reaching speeds close to 150kph opened earlier this month on Jebel Jais.

Haitham Mattar, chief executive of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, on Monday said the aim was to make it even easier for tourists to visit.

"At just 45 minutes from Dubai International Airport, customers can sit back, relax and enjoy the view on our new shuttle service for a relaxing start to their trip," he said.
