    Successful Grand Opening of Dubai Airshow 2017

    The Dubai Airshow began life in 1986 as Arab Air and has since grown and evolved to become one of the largest and most important aerospace events in the world. With the growing need for people from around the world to connect and interact both professionally and personally the dependence on the aviation industry is now greater than ever. The Dubai Airshow has helped to lead the way in providing for this need by creating a world class exhibition, bringing together the world’s leading experts in their respective aviation fields, showcasing the latest and greatest in military, general and commercial aviation. This year’s edition of the bi annual event will be the biggest to date with up to 9 percent increased participation compared to 2015 event, which will see an expected 72,000 visitors, 1250 exhibitors, 1350 media representatives and 160 aircraft on display.

    Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP) is the government entity tasked with the responsibility of holistically managing and preparing the Airshow facility at Dubai World Central to host the event and setting the standards for the Emirates’ latest aviation-related infrastructure. These preparatory works include all infrastructure, telecommunication systems, MEP facilities, underground network supply, site drainage, roads, parking and overall site security systems including CCTV and security screening machines as well as of course the fit out works and furniture installation for the main exhibition hall building and the Royal Pavilion. In addition, DAEP are also responsible for ensuring the aircraft apron is fit for purpose and ready to receive the Dubai Airshow’s world renowned Airshow display which this year will include PLAAF August 1st Air Demonstration Team from China performing in J10As and the Russian Knights in Sukhoi SU30Ms in addition to the UAE’s Al Fursan flying their Aermacchi MB-339NATs.

    Leading DAEP’s Team, DAEP’s CEO Ms. Suzanne Al Anani’s message resonates at these times more clearly and proudly than ever “On behalf of the Government of Dubai, DAEP is driven to continually raise the bar and deliver state-of-the-art airports and aviation-related projects. Our single-minded focus on delivering exceptional quality and achieving the highest possible standards have resulted in the realization of some of the most ambitious, exciting and iconic projects.

    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.
