AIME MRO Middle East is underway in Dubai
The seventh edition of Aircraft Interiors Middle East, (AIME) and the eighth running of MRO Middle East opened today at Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC).
The two-day event, which brings together global operators in the aircraft interiors and MRO sectors with over 100 of the world's leading airlines, was opened by H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, president of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, chairman of Dubai Airports, and CEO of Emirates Airline. Sheikh Ahmed toured the exhibition hall and met a number of the 278 exhibitors.
“It is always an honour to interact with Sheikh Ahmed,” says Patrick Natali, General Delegate Middle East at Safran. “We have been exhibiting at AIME MRO for many years and his presence demonstrates the support that the rulers of Dubai provide to the show and the industry in the region.”
“The show has got off to a fantastic start,” says Michele van Akelijen, Managing Director of organisers F&E Aerospace. “We are thrilled with the number of exhibitors and also with the visitors so far, it really highlights the importance of AIME and MRO Middle East to the industry.”
