An Emirati milestone
“We have crossed many significant milestones this year despite the difficult period. Dubai has been a symbol of resilience and agility in responding to the challenges that the pandemic brought, and we are confident that the collaborative work done by the sector’s key players to restore consumer confidence and boost travel operations will pave the way for a thriving aviation industry. Dubai Airshow 2021 will serve as the ultimate testament to the industry’s steady recovery and growth and firmly establish Dubai as the leading global aerospace hub.”Said the President of Civil Aviation Authority , Chairman of Dubai Airports and Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group, H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum.
Furthermore, the event is a time where manufacturers and airlines make announcements about their aircraft orders and connect with other businesses. In 2019, the UAE purchased $16 billion worth of airplanes, and Air Arabia purchased 120 aircraft for $14 billion.
The event is truly a luxurious one, with booths for meetings that are air-conditioned and soundproofed. And that’s not all, as there will be boardrooms suspended from the ceiling for “meetings in the sky!”
Of course however, precautions and COVID-19 regulations will still be applied throughout the event in order to ensure the safety of the people, including social distancing and the wearing of a face mask, which can result to paying a fine for not wearing one.
