The easing of travel restrictions to and from the UAE will deeply benefit Expo 2020 Dubai as it officially opens in October.

That's according to Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive of Dubai Airports, who spoke exclusively to Dubai Eye's 103.8's Business Breakfast about how the UAE is on a positive trajectory towards recovery.

He's also hopeful that it will eventually lead to a "blanket release" of travel restrictions soon.

Griffiths added that the UK's decision to move the UAE to 'amber' status is a major step forward.

"London's always been the major route between the UAE and the UK and not to have to spend 10 days in a hotel immediately on arrival is going to be an absolute blessing for so many people," he said.

Griffiths also highlighted how the UAE's recent decision to allow UAE residents return from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Nigeria and Uganda, will boost the travel sector.
