CEO’s Message


Walking through the newly inaugurated Concourse A or watching the steady comings and goings of airlines from all over the world at Dubai International Airport, we feel a deep and satisfying sense of accomplishment and pride. It is a feeling that is shared by the entire team at DAEP, who have worked tirelessly and passionately to oversee the design and construction of every little facet over many years of what is now the world’s second-busiest airport.

Our sense of purpose and unwavering commitment, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges, are rooted in a keen understanding of the critical role DAEP plays in realizing the vision of our leaders and the transformative economic impact our projects bring to Dubai, the region and the world. Always looking forward, we constantly review, innovate, plan and evolve to keep ahead of the unrelenting pace, expectations and growth of the Dubai aviation sector.

In the near term, DAEP is tasked with optimizing the capacity at Dubai International to support the extraordinary growth of Emirates and flydubai without major disruption to the ongoing business operations. If that wasn’t challenging enough, we are actively applying our extensive knowledge and engineering ingenuity to develop the Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central to bring online the capacity and facilities that will serve as the world’s leading airport and future home of Emirates.

Our talented and diverse team, in close collaboration with leading engineers, architects, planners, designers, suppliers and consultants, will continue to strive to deliver beyond expectations and embrace the challenge of tripling Dubai’s passenger capacity in the upcoming years.

By investing in and developing our human capital, enhancing our processes, promoting genuine innovation and emphasizing teamwork, DAEP is confident that we can and will transform Dubai’s aviation ambitions into reality.
