Having retained its position as the world’s busiest international airport with 29.1 million passengers, and last week announcing its busiest quarter since 2020, Dubai Airport is on the right track, said Jamal al Hai, Deputy CEO of Dubai Airports.
Jamal al Hai made the statement while delivering the welcome address at the Airport Innovation and Development Conference at the Gulf Airport Leaders’ Forum (GALF), held alongside the 21st edition of the Airport Show in Dubai.
Welcoming the delegates, he said what is seen in Dubai today is the outcome of a flawless response to the pandemic achieved through a balance between protecting the health and well-being of the people while minimising the impact on business and the economy.
Delivering his welcome address, Ibrahim Ahli, Deputy CEO of Dubai Air Navigation Services (dans) said Dubai is galloping in all economic and social sectors, attracting businesses, talents, investors and tourists in hordes.
He added that Dubai is fast becoming the Future City of the world, driven by the maximum embracing of technology, relaxed regulations and reforms.
