The World Aviation Safety Summit will be taking place from December 9 to 10 in Dubai.

They will also discuss ways to upgrade technology and redesign the regional air space in order to enable increased capacity for airlines. 

A report by IATA revealed that solving airspace challenges and creating greater collaborations could help introduce 620,000 additional jobs to the market and more than 293.85 million dirhams [80 million dollars] in GDP by 2037.
