Dubai Airports honours airlines, concessionaires for their service
“Working with a team spirit is one of the secrets of the success of Dubai’s aviation sector. The results of this success were highlighted at the DA Excellence Awards where that team spirit was recognised,” said HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Airports. “At Dubai Airports we have consistently invested over the years to continuously improve the quality and variety of services we provide to airlines and travellers, and we are working hard to achieve our vision and our brand promise of transforming global travel to suit not only current but future expectations.
