Even before the unity of seven emirates, United Arab Emirates had taken small steps into the aviation world. On account of its geographical location, leadership and increasing globalization, the UAE aviation sector began to grow very rapidly. Emergence of UAE as a safe haven in the Middle East, continued growth of religious and retail tourism, rise of UAE as a business hub, and its emergence as the ideal transit point, connecting the Eastern and the Western hemispheres have served the aviation sector well. This has led to growth of carriers of international stature, such as Emirates (Dubai) and Etihad (Abu Dhabi).
​In this report, we take a look at the sector’s contribution to UAE’s GDP, investments that are being made, and factors influencing the demand for the sector. The report provides details of passenger and cargo traffic, and the growth of major UAE airlines and airport expansions. The report also discusses the government regulators, and other organisations that control the UAE aviation industry.
