Advanced security measures needed for USD 90 billion worth of GCC airport projects

March 20, 2012

Aviation security has emerged as a high-priority concern for the Middle East, as the region is expected to handle over 400 million passengers by 2020 based on projections by Airports Council International and the International Air Transportation Association. The GCC alone has an estimated USD 90 billion worth of airport projects lined up, including the new USD 11 billion Doha International Airport, the USD 10 billion Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International, and the multi billion Dollars expansion of Abu Dhabi Airport’s Midfield Terminal Complex. Such major investments need to be complemented by robust threat detection, prevention and response mechanisms.

Given the constant threat of terrorism and the spate of social unrest that recently swept the world, governments and airport authorities are seeking more advanced security measures to better protect their aviation assets, personnel, and passengers as well as aircraft and facilities serving civil aviation. The UAE, the Middle East’s largest international transit hub, has been leading regional efforts to improve screening procedures, deploy the latest detection, prevention and intervention equipments, and enhance communication to prevent security gaps and achieve high safety standards.

The 2012 International Security and National Resilience (ISNR) Abu Dhabi Exhibition and Conference to be held from March 19 to 21, 2012 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre will bring in some of the world’s leading aviation security companies to help address the security concerns of the Arab World’s rapidly growing aviation sector. Attendees will be able to examine solutions for the three primary categories of threats faced by airports, namely, to and from aircraft, to the aviation infrastructure, and from hostile exploitation of cargo.

Included in ISNR Abu Dhabi 2012’s distinguished aviation security exhibitor lineup is Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC). ADAC was established in 2006 to spearhead the development of the aviation infrastructure and service in Abu Dhabi. Today ADAC manages and operates the five airports of the Emirates of Abu Dhabi: Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport, Al Bateen Executive Airport, and the Delma Island and Sir Bani Yas Island Airports. In addition, ADAC is also overlooking a group of subsidiaries that provides services and products essential to the development of the air transport sector in the UAE. The company diversified its activities to include airline development, retail, property management, hospitality, ground handling, catering, and cargo.

“The airport environment is a breeding ground for numerous threats, so it requires heightened levels of vigilance and the reliable support of advanced security systems. As the Middle East’s definitive homeland security event, ISNR Abu Dhabi offers a major platform for aviation security decision makers to examine the full spectrum of solutions available in the global markets and determine which can meet the needs of the region’s burgeoning aviation field. The UAE is a very strategic host to aviation security –related exhibitions given its status as a gateway to the Gulf region and as a global transit center,” said Mohamad Bader-Eddin, Show Director, Reed Exhibitions Middle East.

Eng. Ahmad Al Haddabi, Chief Operating Officer at ADAC commented: “ADAC aims at transforming Abu Dhabi’s airports into world-class facilities. In thriving to achieve this, the company has gained significant experience and expertise in airport safety and security as it is a critical part of daily airport and aircraft operations; ISNR Abu Dhabi 2012 will provide ADAC with an ideal venue to showcase its capabilities while engaging with safety and security specialists from around the world.”

The 5th edition of ISNR Abu Dhabi gathers leading regional and international delegations and more than 150 exhibitors from over 24 countries. It enjoys full government support led by the UAE Ministry of Interior in association with the National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority. The event’s sponsors include Strategic Partner Tawazun Holding, Abu Dhabi’s Critical National Infrastructure Authority, the UAE Telecommunication Regulatory Authority, and Rheinmetall Defence..
