Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), the owner and operator of Abu Dhabi International Airport is set to establish a logistics park next to the airport which is planned to operate as a free zone facility called Abu Dhabi Airport Free Zone (ADFZ). Its creation marks a milestone in Abu Dhabi’s plans to establish itself as a dynamic business centre. The logistics park will take advantage of Abu Dhabi International Airport's strategic geographical position on the crossroads between east and west, and the large-scale economic development of the Emirate.ADAC, was incorporated in March 2006 to spearhead a major redevelopment of the Emirate’s aviation infrastructure. ADAC’s creation was part of an ambitious restructuring initiative launched by the Government of Abu Dhabi, aimed at delivering better services to support the Emirate’s long-term economic and tourism strategies and to help build a more vibrant economy that attracts and promotes private sector investment.
The creation of the logistics park at Abu Dhabi Airport is aligned with ADAC’s objective of financing its Airport development programme, generating non-aeronautical revenues, and minimizing Government grants.
