Nigel Johnson, Managing Director of Hertz UAE: “The new Hertz UAE location at Al Maktoum International underpins our strategic network expansion plan across the UAE.”
Dubai must soon reach a verdict on how it plans to accommodate its two rapidly expanding government-backed airlines, the president of Emirates has told 7DAYS.
Jet Aviation has expanded operations at Dubai World Central’s Al Maktoum International Airport, underlining its FBO presence at the new airport, which opened less than a year ago.
The Seattle-based Boeing Co. announced a stunning haul at the Dubai Airshow on Sunday: Emirates, Qatar Airways, Eithad Airways, Lufthansa and Qatar bought 259 of its new 777 aircraft.
The carrier, which closed deals valued at $62 billion during the previous Dubai Airshow in 2011, is rapidly expanding and replacing its fleet as it grows its network.
Aircraft movements rose 46 per cent at Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) while fluctuations in charter traffic have seen freight volumes dip 11.3 per cent in the first nine months of 2013.
There was a need for a single air traffic management system to oversee both civil and defence aviation, said the company’s chief executive Paul Griffiths.
The 2013 Dubai Airshow next month is set to be the biggest in the event’s history, organisers said at a media event. On Wednesday, F&E Aerospace, the team behind Dubai Airshow, hosted representatives of the media at its new permanent purpose-built venue in Dubai World Central.
