Abu Dhabi Airports to host Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2014 for the third year running

posted on 24/12/2013: 2985 views



Following the success of Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2013, which was held at Al Bateen Executive Airport earlier this year, Abu Dhabi Airports will be hosting the General Aviation Exhibition for the third consecutive year between 25th-27th February 2014 at its dedicated business airport.

To date, 70% of the exhibitor space for Abu Dhabi Air Expo 2014 is already booked and all of last year's exhibitors have rebooked, with many of them booking spaces larger than in previous years. In addition to this, participation has also risen by more than 20%.

Leading manufacturers, including Cessna, Dassault Aviation, Embraer Executive Jets, Bombardier, Gulfstream, and Daher Socata, have already committed to the Air Expo with many requesting to upgrade the size of their stand, and to increase the number of their aircraft in the static display.

The organisers anticipate a display of over 100 aircraft that will feature a range of models from ultra-light to heavy business jets, including the VIP AirBus corporate jet, to the fastest single engine turboprop in the world, the TBM 850.

The total value of sales at this year's Air Expo reached in excess of Dh5 billion. The successful show also saw a 30% increase in attendance compared to the previous Air Expo, with 13,000 visitors and 160 exhibitors from local, regional and international companies.

Yousif Hassan Al Hammadi, Chairman of the Organising Committee for Abu Dhabi Air Expo, General Manager of Al Bateen Executive Airport, said, "Abu Dhabi Airports is proud to be hosting Abu Dhabi Air Expo at Al Bateen Executive Airport for the third year in a row. The size of the event this year compared with last year demonstrates the significant growth in the general aviation industry in Abu Dhabi. This year's success is also a testament to Abu Dhabi's position as an international aviation hub. Al Bateen Executive Airport looks forward to providing a platform for global aviation leaders to grow their businesses and engage with potential partners." General aviation refers to all flights other than military and scheduled airlines and regular cargo flights, both private and commercial. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
