Webinar on Middle East air traffic

A panel of experts will discuss in a live webinar how increased aircraft movements and fewer delays could bring significant economic benefits for both airports and passengers in the Middle East.
With aircraft fleets across the Middle East forecast to grow at an annual rate of more than 10% over the forthcoming decade, skies above the region are becoming increasingly crowded.
A new independent report from research house Oxford Economics has looked at how investment in institutional, operational and technological air traffic control systems can help avoid a doubling in delays over the next decade at a cost of $16.3bn.
Economic Benefits of Improvements to Air Traffic Control, commissioned by air traffic management specialists NATS and undertaken by Oxford Economics, is the first such report to assess the impact of investment in regional air traffic management.
The interactive WebTV Show will take place tomorrow Tuesday September 8 from 12pm in Dubai (9am UK) to hear aviation experts discuss why the time is now to act on these insights and invest in air traffic control management to fuel future benefits and avoid increased delays.
The panel includes Kareen El Beyrouty, senior economist with Oxford Economics and author of the report, Ahmed Al Jallaf, assistant director general ANS at the General Civil Aviation Authority, and John Swift, director of NATS Middle East.
