To deliver beyond expectations, our dreams must be unexpected.

We at DAEP are fortunate to feel a deep sense of accomplishment and pride. The unwavering commitment of our people at every level of our organisation is what leads us to professional success, as well as the realisation of the world’s aviation aspirations. 

DAEP is on the cusp of achieving far more milestones. We are well underway with the formation of Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), the world’s largest airport and aviation hub, and the implementation of our ambitious aviation roadmaps as per the Strategic Plans. We believe the completion of these projects will be the beginning of a new dawn in aviation history, bringing an unparalleled experience for the world’s travellers and redefine the industry as a whole.

Our vision is ambitious, but this is a cumulative reflection of the goals of our nation and its esteemed leadership. DAEP’s incredibly skilled and diverse workforce, which continues to “deliver beyond expectations” even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges, is our greatest asset on our path to accomplishing this mission.

As an organisation, we will continue to invest and grow on our human capital, enhance and optimise our processes, and promote continuous internal collaboration among our teams of workers, engineers, architects, planners, designers, suppliers and consultants. It is my belief that by collaborating together and continuously learning and growing, no challenge is unscalable, and no project is unachievable.

Ms. Suzanne Al Anani has been working for the DAEP for nearly twenty years, overseeing the organisation’s development from the ground up. Her initiatives have led to the tremendous growth of the aviation sector as well as the successful implementation of iconic projects at Dubai International. In 2018, Forbes Middle East named her as one of the most influential women in the Arab world and in 2019, she was ranked 6 in the top 20 Women Leading Top Companies in the Middle East while being the first in the UAE as well as First in the Middle East in the Engineering and Construction sector. Most recently, she was ranked 15th in Forbes 2020 list of 100 Power Businesswomen in the Middle East.
