Strategic partners are on top of Dubai Airports priorities regarding its strategic plan 2017-2025 to achieve their aspirations of making Dubai International Airport an international model in service and satisfying customers in compliance with the UAE government’s directives, said Majed Al Joker, Senior Vice President of Dubai Airports for Corporate Assurance and Governance.
 
Al Joker praised the role of the Airport Security Department, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai and Dubai Customs, noting that the co-ordination and co-operation among them are the secrets behind the success of Dubai Airports, especially with an expected passenger increase from 89 million passengers during the current year to 143 million passengers at Dubai International Airport and Dubai World Central Airport in 2020.
 
The remarks were made during the regular meeting with representatives of strategic partners to discuss the strategic plan 2017-2025 to improve the joint co-operation and promote the security procedures by adopting more advanced techniques, smart security and increasing the efficiency of procedures at ports and checkpoints to ensure passenger comfort.
 
According to forecasts for the Dubai Airports' strategic plan 2017-2025, targeted share of the aviation sector will increase Dh195 billion, equivalent to 37.5 percent of Dubai’s GDP, which will provide around 745,000 jobs by 2020.
 
The UAE is among the leading countries in the world in implementing the aviation security standards. It was given a 99.5 percent assessment rating by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO).
 
The aviation industry, in the UAE in general and Dubai specifically, had two great achievements in 2016 in light of the unprecedented classification from an international organisation, as well as professional dealing with Emirates Airlines accidents.
 
Brig. Talal Al Shanqiti, Assistant to the Director General for Air and Land Ports Affairs, Directorate General of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, praised the level of professional co-ordination among government agencies that operate in Dubai.
 
Over the past year, Dubai Airports received more than 55 million passengers, not including transit passengers- the growth of more than 7 percent compared to 2015, he said.
 
One of its best achievements was to implement the use of an Emirates ID card that ended manual entry and exit procedures at the airport. The number of ID card users exceeded 600,000, he added.
