Routes 2012: Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority establishes dedicated industry development commit

The Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority has established a dedicated industry development committee (IDC) specifically for the airline/aviation sector.

The IDC includes representatives of Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), the Department of Transport and airlines serving Abu Dhabi International Airport. 

Together with the authority, the IDC members will examine potential for expanding the sector’s business throughout the emirate and identify and rectify issues delaying progress.

News of the IDC came at the 18th World Routes Development Forum where our Quality & Performance Manager, Mohammed Al Dhaheri was addressing an industry panel.

Some 2,800 airline and aviation-relation professionals from all over the world are attending Routes, which has also attracted over 120 media.

The authority is encouraging the delegates and media to sample Abu Dhabi’s tourism and culture offering by being part of an expansive Abu Dhabi pavilion at the Routes exhibition, which features a number of key stakeholders including Abu Dhabi Airports Company, Mubadala, TDIC and Etihad Airways.
