Middle East air passengers will soon benefit from a new strategic partnership between the region’s premier airport systems integrator, Bayanat Airports Engineering and Supplies, and the world’s leading airfield technology and lighting company, ADB that will see the two companies
join forces to bring ever-higher standards of airfield safety to the UAE.

Bayanat Airports has worked on major projects for new and expanding airport facilities in the UAE and Qatar, while ADB has worked across the globe for more than 60 years deploying leading-edge technologies to airfields around the world.

“The Middle East’s airports are modernising very, very quickly,” said Georges Hannouche, CEO
of Bayanat Airports Engineering and Supplies, in advance of Dubai’s upcoming 11th Annual Airport Show.

“But there is still a major focus on deploying only the best technologies, and that means Bayanat Airports must be working with the world’s top companies, such as ADB, across our entire portfolio of solutions, from air traffic management systems to airfield lighting and runway and
terminal systems,” added Hannouche.

For more than 60 years, ADB’s mission has been to provide its global customers with products and solutions that improve safety and reduce operating and environmental costs by utilising the latest technology, delivered at uncompromising levels of quality, supported by unparalleled
levels of customer service.

“We believe that the Middle East is our next frontier in terms of bringing the world’s best airfield technology and lighting to some of the world’s largest and fastest-growing airports, and we are excited about our new partnership with Bayanat Airports, ensuring the distribution of our world-class technology in the burgeoning UAE market,” said Malek Hussami, UAE branch manager of ADB.

Organisers of the Airport Show further support the view that there is, in fact, tremendous regional demand for airfield technologies. In Saudi Arabia, the AED 40 billion expansion of King Abdul Aziz International Airport in Jeddah is in progress. Qatar is investing AED 40 billion in the New Doha International Airport, while Bahrain International Airport will double in size when the current AED three billion expansion is completed.

Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, chairman of Dubai Airports and chairman and chief executive of Emirates Airline and Group, the Airport Show took place from 31 May to 2 June at
Dubai’s Airport Expo centre and was supported by leading international industry associations and
local government authorities.

Bayanat Airports and ADB participated in the 2011 Airport Show at stand number CE5 in
central hall and stand number CC7 respectively.
