H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Dubai Future Foundation (DFF), launched the Dubai programme to enable drone transportation.

The primary objective of the Dubai Programme to Enable Drone Transportation is exploring the use of drones in several sectors, including health, security, shipping and food.

By reducing carbon emissions generated by traditional shipping and transportation methods, the programme seeks to improve people’s lives.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed said, "The Dubai Programme to Enable Drone Transportation will create an advanced infrastructure that enables innovators and relevant entities to test prototypes of unmanned aerial vehicles in designated areas and develop legislation that optimises their implementation. The programme aims to provide new economic opportunities and consolidate Dubai’s leadership in advanced technology research and development across diverse future-oriented sectors."

The launch and signing took place during Dubai Airshow 2021 that drew the participation of more than 1,200 exhibitors as well as civilian and military delegations from over 140 countries.

The Dubai Program to Enable Drone Transportation will significantly contribute to the development of the emirate’s transport and shipping infrastructure, which is considered one of the most advanced in the world and support the growth of multiple economic sectors.
