Commercial Aviation 

Commercial aviation continues to surge ahead in the Middle East, driven largely by the major gulf carriers. These airlines, among others, placed strong orders at the previous Dubai Airshow and have committed to further developing their fleets and routes contributing to the growth of the Middle East as the world’s most important aviation region.

Business/General Aviation

Business aviation in the Middle East continues to see strong growth with both movements and the number of aircraft registered increasing steadily. The rapidly growing economies of the GCC and Dubai’s accelerating expansion in the lead up to Expo 2020 are helping to cement business aviation as a cornerstone of the Middle East aerospace industry for years to come. 

Cargo Connect

According to regional airport body ACI Asia-Pacific, airfreight tonnages at Middle East airports grew 2.1% in December 2017; while airfreight growth for the year 2017 in the Middle East grew by 6.0%. More locally, freight volumes began to grow in the second half of 2016 and Dubai International airport (DXB) has posted a record 2,654,494 tonnes of cargo for 2017, up 2.4% on the previous year. With such growth and developments happening in air cargo in the region, Cargo Connect will provide the ideal platform for the industry to gather to share insight and discuss opportunities.


Military aviation is continuing to be an important focus in the Middle East, resulting in increased spending as well as a larger footprint from both local and multi-national companies. With huge advances in military technology and new weapons systems entering the market, visitors to the Dubai Airshow can expect to see a significant military presence at the show.
