Dubai World Central to host show.
Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman, Dubai Aviation City
Corporation, has announced the commitment of Dh1 billion for Dubai World
Central, a purpose-built aerotropolis. The investment will cover the
relocation of the Dubai Airshow 2013 to Dubai World Central and the
start of the first phase of development of its aviation district.
"Dubai World Central is an integral component of the strategic
vision of the Dubai Government to establish the emirate as an
international aviation hub and a gateway to global markets. The aviation
district has been holistically conceived to capitalise on the dynamic
aviation industry of the UAE and the region. The move of Dubai Airshow
2013 to Dubai World Central is an example of Dubai's long-term plan
to meet the growing demands of the industry," said Sheikh Ahmed.
The latest announcement is part of DWC's multi-phased plan to
develop a dedicated aviation cluster. Covering over 6.8 sq km, the
aviation district provides both landside and airside facilities and
leverages the current and future capacity of Al Maktoum International
Airport. Once complete, it will be home to many aviation companies,
including FBOs, MROs and light manufacturing. The Master Plan also
addresses the need for a controlled access to airside functions, which
are exemplified in the general aviation area consisting of a heliport,
areas dedicated for MROs and FBOs, an executive jet terminal and covered
aircraft parking stands.
