Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 25 May 2009: Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) today announced it has signed a joint venture agreement with HeliosSinoGulf to develop a logistics and business park under free zone regulation adjacent to Al Ain International Airport.

The park will also cater to the demand of the upcoming high tech industry and aircraft MRO activities poised to take place in Al Ain airport. This in turn will support and contribute to the growth and diversification of Al Ain economy and the rest of the UAE.”

It is equidistant from five seaports on the east and west coasts, has great road access into the major population centres, has excellent airport facilities for cargo operations, and offers operators and businesses many benefits in comparison with other logistics development locations.”
