Airport Show 2022 – Globally connected, for the creation of a better aviation industry

Dubai, November 3, 2021: The Middle East aviation industry continues to demonstrate its resilience and rebounding fortunes as the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic rolls out with greater confidence and efficiency. Boeing’s most recent research highlights the encouraging short and long-term prospects for ME aviation sector recovery:

  • There is widening global availability and penetration of COVID-19 vaccines, leading to the easing of border controls and domestic/international travel restrictions.
  • Passenger traffic is predicted to rise by 4% per year. Growing confidence in the safety of air travel and the satisfying of pent-up demand are behind the demand growth.
  • Middle Eastern airlines are expected to receive 3,000 new aircraft deliveries over the next 20 years in response to long-term passenger traffic growth trends.
  • Another 196,000 personnel hires will become necessary across ME airlines within the same period, with tens of thousands of hires for ME airports too.

As the premier platform for Middle Eastern aviation, Airport Show is the best place to connect with leading figures across the industry. Every year, Airport Show and its co-located events attract business and government leaders, service providers, tech innovators, academics and buyers from 50+ countries, all determined to remain at the forefront of this rapidly evolving industry. This industry-wide sense of interconnectivity will be even more relevant at the 2022 event, under the theme of ‘Connecting the Global Airport Industry’, as we look for better solutions, together, for creating the next generation of post-pandemic airport infrastructure and services.

Along with the Airport Security Middle East and ATC Forum events, Airport Show will play host to thousands of new connections being made between individuals, companies and whole sectors within the aviation industry. Make sure you are part of this decisive moment in the evolution of airports both in the Middle East and worldwide.
