Airline Development

Superbly situated Abu Dhabi can deliver airlines a passenger and cargo mix bolstered by some of the region’s strongest yields from corporate, government and business traffic. One of the richest cities in the world, it has a strong and resilient economy and its wealth continues to grow through its extraordinary economic diversification under the ‘Abu Dhabi 2030 Plan’.

Airline Development: The Right Place

The Right Place

Abu Dhabi is an ideal location for airlines, for four simple reasons:

1. Abu Dhabi is within easy reach of major world capitals in Europe, Asia and Africa.
2. Primarily a commercial, diplomatic and government destination and yet also a rapidly growing tourist destination, the city now provides an ideal market mix for new and existing carriers.
3. The Capital of the UAE is experiencing exponential growth. USD $500 billion is now being invested in projects, and the city has one of the world’s highest GDPs per capita.
4. Our airports are some of the fastest and most efficient in the region.
