Commercial Aviation 

The UAE holds an important position as an international aviation hub and gateway between Asia, Africa and Europe among others. As the outbreak continues to damper the commercial airline sector, analysts are confident that the Middle East airlines will bounce into growth a lot quicker due to the focus of government on this sector and the carriers adapting their business continuity strategy for long-term growth and sustainability.

Business/General Aviation

The current pandemic has brought an unprecedented change to the way businesses and society operate. The demand for private and business travel operators has risen to ensure safe movement of required travel. As countries recover from the current crisis, organizations and government will now begin accelerating their private travel strategy to mitigate future risks and deliver business growth.   



Military aviation is continuing to be an important focus in the Middle East, resulting in increased spending from government and state-owned organizations. Dubai Airshow will continue to bring together the latest and most innovative military technology and monitoring systems solution providers.   


The UAE's investment in space technologies has already exceeded US$5.4 billion and is steadily growing as local companies expand their global footprint in the industry. The Dubai Airshow is the ideal showcase for the latest developments in this rapidly growing market.
