The 8th International Aerospace Exhibition in Dubai, Dubai 2003, will open tomorrow, Sunday with 550 exhibitors from 36 countries and 13 country pavilions. The biennial show, organised by Fairs & Exhibitions in conjunction with the Department of Civil Aviation, Government of Dubai and the UAE Armed Forces is sold out and has registered a 12 per cent increase in occupied space. For the first time the Dubai air show will feature pavilions from Ukraine and Jordan and will field 85 aircraft, the largest number for any Dubai air show.



Of the 13 pavilions at Dubai 2003, the US will be the largest with some 80 companies participating. The exhibitor profile for Dubai 2003 reveals a 60-40 military split. New developments for the Dubai 2003 air show include a dedicated Helicopter Pavilion and an arena for aviation, fire and security sector. In all around 140 exhibitors emanate from the Arab world, which is a far cry from the launch of the Dubai air who in 1989 when there were only a handful of regional exhibitors. The show will feature its first exhibitor from Kuwait – National Aviation Services.



Of the 85 aircraft due at Dubai 2003, which will run at the Airport Expo Dubai from December 7, some 23 will take to the skies in the daily flying display. More than 350 VIP delegations from 84 countries – mix of civil and military – have been invited to the show. The VIP delegations invited include the heads of more than 70 international airlines and no less than 75 ministers of defence, transport and communications as well as scores of civil aviation chiefs.
