Business setup with Dubai Airport Free Zone (DAFZ)
Dubai Airport Free Zone is located in the emirate of Dubai, which has rapidly risen to the proud position of being the business and commercial hub of the Gulf and Middle East. Dubai has established a position of leadership in the economic development of the region. Moreover, Dubai's strategic location offers access to developing markets with over 1.5 billion consumers - encompassing the member states of the Gulf Co-operation Council (GCC), other Arab countries, the Asian subcontinent, parts of Africa and Europe, and countries of the Common wealth of Independent States (CIS).
One of Dubai Airport Free Zone's strengths lies in its location within the boundaries of Dubai International Airport, one of the fastest growing airports in the world. The airport currently services over 120 airlines serving more than 200 destinations worldwide, and is considered the Middle East's premier airport. According to projections, 60 million passengers are expected to use Dubai International Airport by 2010.
Located adjacent to Dubai International Airport, and therefore within easy access of Dubai Airport Free Zone, the Dubai Cargo Village is a state of art complex with the capability of handling 1.5 million tones of freight annually.
Dnata's Free Zone Logistics Centre (FLC), a dedicated freighter terminal for both scheduled and charter operators, is located in the Dubai Airport Free Zone. It offers flexible, cost-effective handling options, as well as an efficient link between the Free Zone community and Dubai's main cargo terminal in the Cargo Village. The FLC has been designated the Dubai Airport Free Zone's community service provider to act as a conduit for cargo between the aircraft and their own storage areas.
The FLC is located on a 26,000 sqm site, which includes a docking area capable of handling up to 50 trucks. Some 200 sqm in the FLC is dedicated to specialized storage facilities including cooler, freezer, vulnerable and valuable storage rooms.
