GCAA Predict UAE as World’s Busiest Airspace

Advance Passenger Information to Assist Global Aviation Security - APIS ProvidersAt the Global Airport Leaders Forum in Dubai last week, the UAE Minister of Economy and Commerce and GCAA Chairman HE Eng. Sultan Al Mansoori predicted that the UAE will have one of the busiest airspaces in the world within the next 15 years.

Commenting on this suspected growth, the Minister said that major technology investments will be required to ‘keep up with the new challenges’.

He also reiterated that the introduction of Advance Passenger Information earlier this year, with operations based in the Abu Dhabi dedicated Centre for API, was a ‘model to maintaining border security’.

The requirement of API is increasing around the globe and is a step in the right direction to track the movement of high-risk travellers and expediting low-risk passengers.
