square kilometre aviation community being built in Jebel Ali - has
awarded two key air traffic management system tenders.

12 million tonnes of cargo per annum - has been designed to handle the emirate's ambition to attract
15 million tourists annually by 2015.

Maktoum, Chairman, Dubai Aviation Corporation - Dubai World Central, Government of Dubai.
"These tender agreements for the latest and world-class navigational aids packages represent crucial acquisitions for JXB as they are the

on all JXB's six four and a half kilometre runways. Park Air Systems' VHF Radar contract involves the most modern air traffic management
