Every day, UAE airports receive and dispatch more than a hundred airplanes to various destinations. Moreover, both passenger and cargo airplanes. The free trade regime allows importing and exporting products from other countries without paying some tax payments and customs duties. This is a favorable advantage when doing business.

Al Maktoum International Airport is one of the most important transportation hubs. It is located in the Dubai World Central (DWC) area in the southern part of the city. Interesting fact: one-third of the world’s population — more than 2.5 billion people — live within a four-hour flight distance from Dubai. But in addition to the huge passenger traffic, the airport provides transportation of a large number of goods. This is possible thanks to Emirates Airline’s division, Emirates SkyCargo. It handles 1,200,000 tons of cargo annually.

Abu Dhabi Airport also has one of the key values in the UAE. It is one of the fastest growing aviation hubs in the world. It will open its largest cargo and passenger terminal in November. This will significantly increase capacity.

The on-site RAK center is equipped with state-of-the-art loading and unloading equipment. It is also renowned for its comprehensive security system and professional team.

Sharjah Airport is often used as a transit point. It provides transportation of more than 70,000 tons of cargo. There are 5 cargo terminals and 1 passenger terminal.

Fujairah Airport mainly serves flights within the country. It handles a wide range of goods: from perishable and oversized goods to live animals and dangerous goods.
