Welcome Dubai Airshow

By:Staff Lieutenant Colonel / Yousef Juma Al Haddad
Editor in Chief
From its inception in 1989 to its 16th edition in November 2019, the Dubai Airshow has established itself as one of the world’s leading international aerospace exhibitions. The importance of the Dubai Airshow lies in the fact that it is the primary platform for launching new trends and discussing issues that help develop the aerospace sector regionally and globally. The event has also become a key player in shaping the aviation industry through the issues discussed during the accompanying conferences and deals. 
Above all, it also reflects the overall progress in the UAE and the growing nature of the aerospace industry, which is one of the fastest growing, developed and competitive sectors in the region and the world, in terms of infrastructure, air carriers, smart solutions, air surveillance, security and safety, and air cargo industry.
The great success of the Dubai Airshow came not from a vacuum, but rather from a combination of factors. The first is the support of the wise leadership for the exhibition, by providing all forms of assistance, so that it may reflect the civilised aspect of the UAE. The generous sponsorship by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, of the exhibition since the beginning of its first session to the 16th session, certainly underlies the international status and remarkable reputation of the Dubai Airshow.
His Highness believed in the role of the aerospace sector in the comprehensive development of the UAE. The second is the great organisational and human expertise gained by the organising committee of the exhibition. As a result of the committee’s openness to, and benefit from, similar international exhibitions, it has already been able to make Dubai Airshow the best in the world. The third is the tremendous and accelerated development of the aviation sector. The UAE is one of the fastest growing countries in the region and the world in the aviation sector. It has a world-class airlift fleet, sophisticated airports and infrastructure that keep pace with the latest developments and innovations globally. This is reflected in the advanced rankings it has achieved in the aviation security standards according to the International Civil Aviation Organization, in addition to the first place in the quality of air transport infrastructure, according to the Global Competitiveness Report. In October 2019, the UAE won a seat on the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization “ICAO” for the fifth time, in recognition of its efforts and active contributions in shaping the future of the international civil aviation sector.
The fourth factor is the unprecedented infrastructure of Dubai and the UAE in general, including high-level airports, road network, transportation and communications infrastructure, all of which contributed to the success of the exhibition, and enhanced its ability to increasingly attract thousands of exhibitors, visitors, experts and specialists in the aviation sector from one session to another.
The 16th edition of the Dubai Airshow is the largest in terms of both exhibitors and visitors, as well as new events and activities. It is the embodiment of a successful journey and a confirmation of the UAE’s prestige and ability to organise specialised international exhibitions.
