Dubai Airport Freezone Authority

Dubai Airport Freezone Authority (“DAFZA”) was established in 1996 and is a business hub located at the heart of global trade. Benefiting from direct access to Dubai International Airport, DAFZA offers the ideal gateway to the Middle East and unrivalled connectivity to Europe, the Indian Subcontinent and the Far East.

DAFZA is recognised as one of the advanced free zones in Dubai, which provides a business-friendly environment and world-class infrastructure. It is home to more than 1,800 registered companies and 15,000 professionals, who benefit from other incentives such as tax exemptions, full repatriation of earnings, and the possibility of total foreign ownership.

Under DAFZA’s leadership, the airport free zone has significantly expanded and has played a key role in boosting Dubai’s economic growth.
