RAS AL KHAIMAH — The eighth edition of the two-day Arab Aviation Summit which will commence in Ras Al Khaimah on Monday will provide a platform for industry experts to examine the impact of the pandemic on aviation.

The aviation sector has suffered most in the wake of COVID-19, due to repeated lockdowns imposed by different world countries.

The summit will focus on the road to recovery for a stronger future, under the theme, “Arab Aviation in the New Normal”, according to a statement of the organisers.

The 2021 Arab Aviation Summit, the region’s leading aviation and tourism industry event, is held at Al Hamra International Exhibition & Conference Centre in the emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

At several workshops, participants will look closely at the various aspects of the region’s aviation and tourism sector.

“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,” said Adel Al Ali, Air Arabia Group CEO.

The aviation industry has always remained resilient in bouncing back from crisis, particularly in the Middle East,  Mikail Houari, President, Airbus Africa Middle East noted.

“Airlines in the region have proven to be agile and adaptable to changing environment and they will be key actors in driving economic recovery. At Airbus we foresee a strong recovery for the Middle East aviation sector.” Houari added.
