Around the country, industry players continue to invest in new projects and initiatives, such as Emirates operating its first demo aircraft fueled by 100 percent Sustainable Aviation Fuel and Dubai Airports adopting efficiency and creative solutions.

The development of electric and hybrid eVTOLs, as well as the publication of the world's first national vertiport rules by the DCAA, all lead to significant growth in the aerial mobility sector.

Industry trailblazers and innovators will gather at the Dubai Airshow to discover future trends and further chances to continue these efforts. Additional relevant issues include space technology, localization through the ''Made it in the Emirates'' campaign, and the role of start-ups and their significant contribution to achieving sustainability goals.
