Region Expects 175,000 Business Aircraft Movements by 2020
The Dubai Airshow 2019 is expecting business aviation to be a significant part of the event when it returns from 17 – 21 November at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site.
Business aircraft movements in the region are predicted to reach 175,000 by 2020.
The prediction, made at the MEBAA Conference Dubai in December, underlines the industry’s growth in the region, and is reinforced by key players in business aviation demonstrating their commitment to the Middle East’s leading aerospace event.
In addition, the UAE is expecting an increase in private jet landings next year as a result of Expo 2020, leading to increased opportunities for the industry.
Key business aviation OEMs will be represented at the show, including Boeing Business Jets, Gulfstream, Dassault Aviation, Airbus Corporate Jets, Textron and Pilatus who will be joined at the show for the first time by Citadel Completions.
Exhibitors at the event represent the whole business aviation supply chain, from OEMs to interiors, completions specialists to FBOs including Jet Aviation, DC Aviation and private airports such as Al Bateen Executive Airport.
Said Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of show organisers Tarsus F&E LLC Middle East: “Business in the region relies on face-to-face meetings and personal relationship building.
“The fantastic thing about the Dubai Airshow is that it provides a truly global stage for all aspects of the aerospace industry, and business aviation is always extremely highly represented. I look forward to welcoming the industry to Dubai in November.”
The Dubai Airshow 2019 is expecting 1300 exhibitors and up to 87000 trade visitors across the five days.
