Abu Dhabi: The General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) has revealed that an average of 1,000 aircraft fly over the UAE airspace daily. This is the latest figure for this month. This is 200 per cent more than the number of air carriers last April.
Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, Director General of the General Civil Aviation Authority, said that the unfavorable situation in the aviation industry caused by Kovid is gradually declining as a result of the efforts of the UAE authorities. He said the launch of two new national airlines, Air Arabia Abu Dhabi and Wis Air, was a major milestone in the aviation sector, even during the crisis. Air Arabia Abu Dhabi, the capital’s first low – cost airline, launched the service on July 14. Wis Air Abu Dhabi is expected to launch in the coming weeks. Al-Suwaidi said that along with the practical solutions implemented at the government level to reduce the spread of Qovid, strict precautionary measures have been taken for the safe operation of the aircraft and the recovery of the aviation industry.
