The Dubai Airshow has a rich legacy as a pivotal meeting ground for aerospace professionals. Over the years, it has burgeoned into a global hub for aerospace innovation and commerce.

A Glimpse into the Past

The Dubai Airshow commenced its journey as "Arab Air" in 1986, reflecting the region's burgeoning focus on the aviation sector. Initially, it was a modest aviation exhibition held at the Dubai World Trade Centre, orchestrated by F&E.

However, the narrative of this event took a pivotal turn in 1989 when it was rebranded as the "Dubai Airshow” marking a broader engagement with the global aerospace industry. The rebranding was a significant stride, amplifying its scope and attracting 200 companies and 25 aircraft to participate in the event.

2021 Edition

The previous edition in 2021 saw a robust turnout with 104,165 attendees, generating a staggering $74 billion in orders, an emblem of the event's commercial vitality and its role as a catalyst for industry advancements​​. The airshow has been instrumental in fostering global trade in the aerospace sector, providing a platform for major orders and business ventures.
