In Dubai, it is expected that the number of aircraft that will take off or land at the city’s two airports will reach 1,000 planes a day this year with the recent opening of Dubai World Central Airport. This figure is expected to double to about 2,000 aircraft per day by the year 2020.

Also by that year, the total number of passengers annually served by airports across the Gulf will reach 250 million. These figures represent an optimistic outlook for the future of the aviation industry in the region, but they also convey the magnitude of the challenges associated with servicing this industry. This episode on Al Arabiya explores how major aviation players in the region will both sustain this growth and tackle the challenges it poses.
