H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman, Dubai Aviation City Corporation, on Wednesday announced the commitment of AED 1 billion for Dubai World Central, a purpose-built aerotropolis to 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 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 H.H. Sheikh Ahmed.

The latest announcement is part of DWC's multi-phased plan to develop a dedicated aviation cluster.

Covering over 6.8 square kilometres, 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 masterplan 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.

The new venue of Dubai Airshow 2013 will encompass a larger area than the current facility and will consist of a grand reception building, two large exhibition halls, and static display areas, which will offer more space to accommodate additional aircraft.

The show's Royal Pavilion for VIP visitors will be positioned to overview the display line and static display. An exclusive area that commands an excellent view of the showcase has also been earmarked for the press facility along with the control tower. There will also be a special dedicated area for casual visitors to witness the Airshow's flying displays and to accommodate leisure and entertainment activities for families.

Dubai World Central is one of the most important and strategic projects launched by the Government of Dubai. It has been developed to meet the present and future needs of Dubai's aviation, tourism, trade and logistics sectors. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
