In a significant milestone, Dubai Municipality and the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority have announced the successful completion of the first phase of the pioneering ‘Dubai Horizons’ project. This initiative, designed to establish planning standards for drone routes and dedicated landing zones, represents a crucial step forward in the integration of drone technology in Dubai’s airspace.

Advancing Dubai’s Aerial Landscape

The ‘Dubai Horizons‘ project, a collaborative effort between Dubai Municipality and the Civil Aviation Authority, has successfully laid the groundwork for planning standards in low-altitude airspace and designated airport locations. The strategic alignment with aviation and construction regulations underscores the commitment to advancing Dubai’s capabilities in air transportation.

This forward-looking approach seeks to elevate air navigation security and safety standards.

Fostering Investment and Economic Growth

Upon completion, the ‘Dubai Horizons’ project is poised to significantly enhance Dubai’s readiness for drone usage and air delivery services. The establishment of well-defined routes with precision data adhering to international standards is expected to reinforce Dubai’s leadership and competitiveness on a global scale, creating a favorable investment climate.
