July 14, 2009, Dubai, UAE. – The Dubai Airshow has attracted top names in the aerospace industry to the new Emirates Hall, its fourth exhibition area, created due to unprecedented demand.

Airbus, with the EADS group, will join hall sponsor Emirates, the Dubai-based international airline, along with Lufthansa Technik, TAP Maintenance & Engineering, Air France Industries KLM E&M, Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), Dubai Airports and Dubai World Central – Aviation City, among others.

Running from 15 to 19 November 2009 at the Dubai Airport Expo, the biennial airshow is the foremost aerospace event in the Middle East and the fastest growing in the world.

Alison Weller, Director of airshow organiser F&E Aerospace, expressed her optimism for a successful airshow this year, amid positive signs in the global economic climate. "The aerospace industry has undoubtedly been affected by the economic downturn over the past few months. However, with the ambitious orders made at the recent Paris Air Show, primarily by top aviation players in the Middle East, I believe the global aerospace industry can look to this region for future indications of recovery.

"We look forward to welcoming all our exhibitors, both to the new Emirates Hall and our existing exhibition halls."

The Emirates Hall will cover 7,025sqm, with 5,000sqm for exhibition stands and 1,200sqm for the new Press Centre, bringing the total airshow area to 325,513sqm, which includes the static park.

Exhibitors and visitors can gain access to the temporary structure through its own entrance which leads into the registration area.
Dubai Airshow 2009, the 11th running of the event, is also offering exhibitors an additional 13 double-storey hospitality chalets and has increased the floor space of all double-storey chalets by 40sqm (20sqm on each floor).

The chalets will now sport a blue-and-white striped roof, to reflect Dubai Airshow's blue branding. Lining the airfield, the chalets give spectators panoramic views of the enthralling aerial displays conducted daily throughout the airshow.
