In an effort to improve security and facilities in the region, airports around the Gulf Coast will be spending up to $90 billion in infrastructure upgrades and training for employees. Qatar alone will spend $11 billion on improvements, and Dubai has allotted $10 billion.  Eight new runways are planned for the area’s airports in an effort to accommodate the anticipated 400 million travelers through the region by 2020.

Gulf Coast based airlines are also upping their spending, together ordering 400 airplanes from manufacturers.  Tourism and business are heavily dependent on the airline industry, which has been growing steadily in the Middle East for years.  The round of infrastructure and security investments by the region’s airports will help to keep up with both handling the crowds and protecting airports and travelers alike in a post-9/11 global economy.
