Large-scale airport projects attract French companies to Dubai's Airport Show

Posted 4 May 2016 · Add Comment

Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy, is organising its 5th France pavilion at the Airport Show in Dubai from 9 to 11 May 2016.

Gathered together in a 120 square metres national pavilion, the French exhibitors will present their innovative and varied products and know-how to buyers from all over the Middle East, and Business France will organise networking meetings for them with Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects and ADPI. 

Airports in the GCC zone are expected to handle 250 million passengers a year by the year 2020, and it is estimated that the airport infrastructure and equipment market in the Middle East will reach 100 billion USD of investments by 2020. 

Dubai is keen to move its airport hub as soon as the current airport has reached 90 million annual passengers. The delivery of the final Terminal 1 satellite is expected to be the last major project for the current airport, i.e. an investment of 3.7 billion USD. The capacity of the new airport, Al Maktoum International, is expected for its part to reach 120 million passengers by 2020 and 200 million when the project is completed, for which a total investment of 32 billion USD is forecast. 

In order to respond to future calls for tender linked in particular to the Al Maktoum project, the French offer is organised in clusters around a common banner, French Efficiency. French companies occupy a significant position on the global market and are intent on cementing their position. 

The French market is organised into different areas covering design, construction, equipment and systems as well as services distributed over 3 sectors – flight control and ground traffic, airline stopovers, and terminals.
