Prime Minister joins Dubai Air show
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has joined the grand opening ceremony of the five-day 16th biennial ‘Dubai Air Show-2019′ on Sunday (Nov.17) morning.

The air show started at Dubai World Central, Dubai’s airport of the future (also known as Dubai Al Maktoum International Airport). The aircraft will take to the skies over Dubai from 2pm to 5pm every day on November 17-21.

The Premier attended the air show at the invitation of Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE, and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. She will later enjoy the flying display in the afternoon at Dubai World Central from 2pm to 5pm local time on Sunday (Nov.17)

This year’s edition sees more than 1,300 exhibitors, 87,000-plus trade visitors and up to 165 aircraft from 160 countries on display.

The air show is expected to surpass the feats of Dubai Air show 2017, which concluded with an order book worth more than $113.8 billion.

The Dubai Air Show, which first launched in 1989, has turned into a global platform for the aviation industry to sell its new wares, as the public and private sector meet to discuss new technologies, opportunities, and hurdles facing the industry.

UAE airlines are expected to steal the show at the region’s premiere aircraft exhibition by announcing a good number of new orders and confirming their previous deals.

The Premier arrived here on Saturday night on a four-day official visit to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to attend Dubai Air Show-2019 and other programs.

Concluding the four-day visit to the UAE, the Premier will return home on November 19.
