The Dubai Airshow 2019 is expecting business aviation to be a significant part of the event when it returns from 17 – 21 November at DWC, Dubai Airshow Site. Business aircraft movements in the region are predicted to reach 175,000 by 2020. The prediction, made at the MEBAA Conference Dubai in December, underlines the industry’s growth in the region and is reinforced by key players in business aviation demonstrating their commitment to the Middle East’s leading aerospace event. In addition, the UAE is expecting an increase in private jet landings next year as a result of Expo 2020, leading to increased opportunities for the industry.
Key business aviation OEMs will be represented at the show, including Boeing Business Jets, Gulfstream, Dassault Aviation, Airbus Corporate Jets, Textron and Pilatus who will be joined at the show for the first time by Citadel Completions. Exhibitors at the event represent the whole business aviation supply chain, from OEMs to interiors, completions specialists to FBOs including Jet Aviation and DC Aviation, private airports such as Al Bateen Executive Airport; and gourmet catering firms, providing an ideal platform for those in the industry to network and forge relationships to take advantage of the opportunities offered.
The Dubai Airshow 2019 is expecting 1300 exhibitors and up to 87000 trade visitors across the five days.
