The UAE is the aviation powerhouse of the Gulf. The country’s five existing main passenger airlines – Emirates, Etihad Airways, Air Arabia, flydubai and RAK Airways – operate a remarkable 283 aircraft, with another 407 on order. Yet, despite the scope of the UAE’s aviation ambitions, the country does not have a scheduled domestic operator.

Much attention is often focused on the Middle East’s larger airports, including those at Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Jeddah, Riyadh, Islamabad, Doha and Bahrai. But the region’s second-tier airports are becoming increasingly important, especially as Middle East second-tier carriers expand operations. These carriers are reshaping competition in and beyond the region and are being reshaped themselves by dynamic change in the region.
Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) plans to develop a 650,000 sqm Free Zone business and logistics park adjacent to Al Ain International Airport, through a JV with Helios SinoGulf Property Development LLC. The park is part of ADAC’s development strategy for the airport, and hopes it will cater to the growing needs of the region’s economy.
