Dubai Executive Council hold meeting at Dubai Airport
Chaired by the Dubai Crown Prince, the future of the emirate was discussed
As air traffic steadily continues to pick up and Emirates Airline restarts operations, Dubai’s Executive Council met earlier this week to discuss ‘how to conquer the impossible.’
According to sister publication Arabian Business, the meeting was chaired by HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, held at Dubai Airport’s Terminal 3, where the prince described Dubai Airport as the beating heart of the world, with Emirates airline as its artery.
"Today, we are ready and we announce to the world that life continues, and impossible is not in our dictionary. And the good news is that things are good, and today we are more competitive to deal with the post Covid-19 era with confidence and innovative thinking to set a new model in dealing with pandemic and consolidating efforts,” he said.

As one of the world’s leading carriers, Emirates Airline is a key component of Dubai’s action plan post-pandemic. The airline resumed passenger flights to eight countries on May 21, now flying to London Heathrow, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Madrid, Chicago, Toronto, Sydney and Melbourne. A schedule is in place until June 30, after which Emirates president Tim Clark said he hopes Dubai will open to tourists on July 1.
