The 2021 Arab Aviation Summit (AAS), the region’s leading aviation and tourism industry event, commenced yesterday at Al Hamra International Exhibition & Conference Centre in Ras Al Khaimah, UAE.

The eighth edition of the two-day summit brings together experts to discuss the impact of the pandemic on the industry, the aftermath, and the road to recovery for a stronger future, under the theme, ‘Arab Aviation in the New Normal.’

 

The summit will feature a number of workshops on to discuss the various aspects of the region’s aviation and tourism sector.

 

Adel Al Ali, Group chief executive officer, Air Arabia, said: “We look forward to this edition of the Arab Aviation Summit, which serves as an ideal platform to discuss the status of Arab Aviation and the role the industry will play in the broader economic recovery. Through open sessions and constructive dialogues that brings both public and private sectors together, we are confident the outcome will help unify efforts in supporting a vital and resilient industry.”

 

Raki Phillips, CEO, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said: “We are delighted to host the Arab Aviation Summit as the first in-person event to take place following the onset of the pandemic. We value the immense contributions made by the aviation industry to highlight destinations such as Ras Al Khaimah and look forward to working closely to ensure all guests are extended a warm welcome, reflecting the authentic Arabian ethos of our Emirate.

 

“As the first city to be certified as safe by both Bureau Veritas and the World Travel and Tourism Council, participants at the Summit can rest assured that their health and wellbeing remains our utmost priority, as they focus on the discussions to identify strategies and set a strong roadmap for navigating the new normal.”

 

Endorsed by Arab Governments and previously held across the Arab region, the 2021 AAS is hosted in collaboration with Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority and supported by global industry partners such as Airbus, CFM, Air Arabia, Alpha Aviation Academy, and others.
