This video visualises 24 hours of air traffic across the Arabian Gulf. It shows approximately three thousand flights and is taken from a period spanning 4am to 4am (UAE Time Zone) across the 28th and 29th of November 2013.

The region has experienced incredible growth in air traffic over recent years. In fact Dubai has recently overtaken Heathrow as the world’s busiest international airport and at its current rate of growth is projected to handle nearly 100 million passengers per year by 2020. Whilst the growth is exciting, the airspace is becoming increasingly congested.

Airspace is a critically important structural and economic asset for a country and just like other assets needs careful management to get the most value from it. Airports will only ever be as efficient as the airspace that serves them and the Middle East will undoubtedly need to address the capacity challenge it faces to fulfil its true potential.
