Middle East Business Aviation – MEBA 2013

11-13 December 2012 Dubai World Central Airport This relatively young trade show has now moved into third place behind the NBAA in the USA and EBACE in Geneva as a showcase for executive jets and all their associated trimmings. Previously hosted at the Dubai International airport this was its first showing at the new Dubai World Central (DWC); slightly south of the city and closer to the Etihad hub at Abu Dhabi. Now serving as a freight hub, DWC is finding it difficult to attract airlines and much of the infrastructure is incomplete; however, business jet fixed base operators are staking their claims as they are eased out of Dubai International by the growth of Emirates and its local subsidiary Fly Dubai.
