Safety is our priority
Dubai has been witnessing a consistently strong growth in air passenger numbers, with an average of more than 7 per cent annually. Cargo volumes also continue to rise.
To meet the needs of growth in air passenger numbers and cargo volumes, Dubai is expanding its facilities.
Dubai World Central, Dubai’s second airport, saw 29.5 per cent growth in passenger traffic in the first quarter of this year with nearly 334,000 passengers. As the expansion of passenger terminal completes, it will have the capacity to handle over 26 million passengers. Capacity expansion, growth in passenger numbers as well as cargo and increased aircraft movement, have made UAE and Dubai’s aviation sector one of the most prominent aviation sectors in the world.
At the DCAA, this means a higher responsibility of ensuring safety of Dubai’s skies.
The UAE has been ranked the highest in the world in compliance with international aviation safety standards by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
Aviation safety has always been our top priority and we have been enhancing our safety and security in Dubai’s airspace in accordance with international standards. We use the latest smart technology and our highly trained staff conduct regular inspections and ensure highest level of aviation safety and security in all aspects.
I would like to thank all our stakeholders and employees who work with strong commitment to give more than their best and help us achieve our goals.
Mohammed Abdulla Ahli
