Dubai is the second largest emirate of the federation, Dubai has the highest population and international profile. With lower reserves of oil and a reputation as a trading post, Alfarah Movers and Removal, Dubai concentrated on its strategic position early on, developing itself as a commercial hub of movers and removal. Since the establishment of Jebel Ali Port (1979) and Jebel Ali Free Zone (1985), many business-specific free zones have been developed and are continuing to grow and encouraging foreign investment.
Aviation has played a strong role in the emirate’s success, with the government’s ‘open skies’ policy helping to establish the city as a regional hub for both passenger and Alfarah Movers and Removal traffic, movers, removal, cargo and shipment. Constant development has seen the airport expand to three terminals and capacity is expected to increase from 60 million passengers to 90 million by 2018. A second mainly charter and cargo airport, Al Maktoum International, has opened in Jebel Ali as part of Dubai World Central. Dubai’s own Emirates Airline, launched in 1985, has been a major player in this development and continues to expand rapidly in terms of fleet and international destinations.
