Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority

Dubai Airport Free Zone Authority

Dubai Airport Free Zone was officially established by the Government of Dubai in 1996. Establishing the Free Zone within the boundary of Dubai International Airport was in line with the greater strategy of our Government, to develop Dubai as a successful center for business, trade and investment.

DAFZA is one of the most recently established free zones in the UAE, grants licenses to companies with an international reputation who intend to invest properly in environment-friendly projects that are not labour-intensive.

The Dubai Airport Free Zone is built around a high quality infrastructure providing digital communications, reliable power and other utilities supporting the needs of sophisticated high technology companies. This free zone is a major new step in Dubai’s evolution from a distribution hub to a manufacturing centre, and in this respect complements the already well-established Jebel Ali Free Zone.

DAFZA has become one of the few free zones in the region, and the first in UAE, to receive ISO 9001:2000 certification. More than 125 companies have been registered and about 500 applications have been received for companies intending to establish in the zone.
