United Arab Emirates: February 2020 - BUSINESS FRANCE, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy will be alongside 18 French companies for the 9th consecutive year at the Aircraft Interiors & MRO trade show, a key event in the Middle East set to take place in Dubai on February 25-26, 2020.

 

Eager to strengthen ties with local decision-makers and then contribute to the evolution of the aeronautics sector in the region, French companies will introduces their latest products, technologies and innovations during AIME / MRO Middle East 2020. 

 

The Aircraft Interior design and maintenance has a high added value in the aeronautical sector, where French SMEs stand out for their expertise, know-how and high quality of service.  In the interior design segment, they operate in several areas, which are of major concern to airlines: materials engineered to be lighter, interiors customized to make airlines stand out, volume use optimization, Inflight Entertainment and communication systems, and more. The market is also largely driven by the MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) sector where French companies have the capacity to offer innovative solutions in many areas: flight monitoring / predictive maintenance, rapid and efficient parts replacement, improvement of processes on new technologies, digitization of documentation and monitoring, use of big data, virtual training, etc.

 

Frederic Szabo, Managing Director Business France Middle East stated “The wide variety of responses offered by the French aviation market may easily meet the needs of Middle Eastern airlines, which are constantly expanding their fleets to answer significant growth in local air traffic. Considered as a powerful sector, French aeronautics industry ranks second world-wide and enjoys an excellent reputation boasting considerable innovation capacity. Indeed, 11% of the sector’s turnover is invested in R&D”. 

 

The aerospace industry in France encompasses nearly 4,000 companies and 320,000 professionals.  In 2018, the sector generated €65.4bn in sales, €44bn of which came from exports. This cogent, supportive, responsive and dynamic industry is a technological and economic excellence center for France.

 

France can also lay claim to a fertile aeronautical ecosystem composed of renowned groups such as Airbus, Dassault, Thales and Safran, as well as an extensive network of subcontractors that accounts for half the jobs in the sector. De facto, France is the UAE’s 3rd largest supplier in aeronautics.
