Gulf airports aim at 450m passengers a year by 2020

Home to the world’s fastest-growing airports and international airlines, the Arabian Gulf states are investing massively in airport security to eliminate potential risks and threats and ensure a seamless experience to millions of passengers who are passing through the world’s new global travel crossroads.

As demand for air travel continues to grow year on year, governments and aviation enforcement authorities face the need to adopt strict safety measures that will counter risks and threats before they occur whilst limiting the inconvenience faced by the passenger.

The global aviation security market, according to industry estimates, is worth over $22 billion.

Currently ranked world’s number two for international passengers, Dubai International Airport has more than 4,000 security personnel and over 7,000 advanced cameras that help in the upkeep of its excellent track record – and it is still expanding, along with the fast development of the new Al Maktoum International Airport in Dubai World Central (DWC).
