Hosting the prestigious Arab Aviation Summit 2016 will only strengthen our efforts in further showcasing the country’s attractive and wide-ranging tourism offerings. A highly recognized aviation forum that gathers top industry players and media organizations, the summit will serve to forge new partnerships with key stakeholders, while cementing the role of the aviation and tourism sectors in generating economic growth across the Arab world.”

The 6th edition of the Summit will bring in-depth analysis and insights to a captive audience from across the Arab region, and as the forum’s strategic partner we look forward to discussing Airbus’ latest market forecast, innovations and opportunities that await the industry.”
Key findings and outcomes from the event are developed into a white paper report, which is later presented to regulators and decision makers from both public and private sectors, and followed up by a course of action.
