UAE-based largest aviation event, Dubai Airshow 2021 will take place from 14 to 18 November 2021 at Dubai World Central to showcase the resilience and agility of the aviation, aerospace and defense sectors.

The event is a vital indicator of Dubai’s progress in overcoming the hurdles created by the pandemic and moving in the right manner toward a complete recovery of the aviation industry.

Dubai Airshow 2021 will be held with the support of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Dubai Airports, the UAE Ministry of Defense, and Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects, and organized by Tarsus Middle East.

Commenting on the progress that Dubai’s aviation sector has made following the pandemic, HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman of Dubai Airports, and Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline and Group said, “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 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.”

“For many years we have been collaborating and working closely with different defense delegations from across the world for the Dubai Airshow. This engagement has continued virtually throughout the pandemic, and we are now planning on having in-person meetings and sessions at the Airshow itself. With the positive sentiment within the industry and the appetite for business continuity, we believe the Airshow will provide the ideal event for strategic development and the creation of new partnerships. Taking center stage will be the different technologies that enhance safety and accelerate efficiency. They will play a key role in the aviation, aerospace, and defense industries getting back to business following the pandemic.”

“A great experience awaits the industry as they once again gear up to the network, discuss the future of the industry and do business at the Dubai Airshow. There will be a high number of attendees from the defense industry at the Airshow and we are very much looking forward to meeting them during the event,” noted Major Gen. Al Balushi.

The UAE has begun opening quarantine-free travel corridors with several nations around the world, which is a significant step toward attracting more travelers and visitors. In addition, as part of its commitment to assure the airport’s full operational readiness, Dubai Airports recently reopened Terminal 1 at Dubai International (DXB) after a 15-month closure. DXB is targeting 28 million passengers in 2021.
