Dubai seeks pact on airspace

A top official in Dubai said the emirate supports the creation of an international accord to make more airspace available in the region, reported Gulf News. Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, said most countries in the region have large no-fly zones for security reasons and some of these can be opened up for civilian aircraft. Air space constraints are viewed as a barrier to growth in aircraft movements in Middle East skies when large-scale airport projects are completed.
