Dubai South has announced the completion of Phase 1 of its Aerospace Supply Chain Facility at Aviation City.

The announcement was made on the inaugural day of MRO Middle East 2017 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

Phase 1 of the project features a multi-purpose landside facility, covering a total area of 9,000m2, and includes 12 units catering for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the global maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) sector.

The facility comprises workshop facilities and offices, state news agency, WAM reported.

Ahmed Al Ansari, acting CEO of Dubai South, said: "The project represents a significant 'added value' for all companies participating in the aviation supply chain and supporting the aerospace industry.

“The first of its kind in the Middle East, the facility is purpose-built to cater to the specific needs of the aerospace industry and leverages the integrated aviation ecosystem that Dubai South is creating.

"The key advantage of the aerospace supply chain is its strategic location that offers unrivalled access to both the Al Maktoum International Airport and Jebel Ali Port, as well as benefits from Dubai South’s multi-modal logistics platform.”

“The facility offers unique productivity and efficiency benefits that arise from the ‘cluster effect’, which is created by suppliers and stakeholders, all in close proximity within the Dubai South Aviation District," added Al Ansari.

When completed, the entire Aerospace Supply Chain, which includes nine phases, will span 15.7ha.
