When the New Year comes, everyone’s eyes get focussed especially to know what had been Dubai’s success in the previous year.
Civil aviation has remained a symbol of pride and achievement for Dubai. The aviation industry has remained in the midst of spectacular growth in line with the government’s vision of transforming Dubai into the global aviation hub.
Dubai’s share in the future growth will be very strong. Dubai Airports forecasts that passenger demand could exceed 190 million passengers a year by 2030. This is expected to climb to over 260 million by 2040 and as high as 309 million by 2050.
A vital element of Dubai’s success story has been its ability to think and plan ahead of time. The seed of the civil aviation that was sown in the middle of the vast Arab desert at a time when the means of livelihood and infrastructure minimalist has blossomed into a huge tree with its roots not only gaining solid grounds but providing opportunities for other sectors to flourish alongside.
Open Skies has remained the frontline of our winning strategy for the civil aviation development, including airports and airspace management, expansion of air connectivity for the movement of both human and trade across the world. What we have is an all-encompassing strategy that includes capacity expansion, sustainable development, customer-centric facilities and capability to overcome challenges and set new benchmarks.
