“The Dubai International Airport is one of the top airport hubs handling more than 60 million passengers and aircraft movements in excess of 300,000 annually. We are confident that iFerret™ will rise to the occasion and enhance aviation safety for travellers and employees in this very busy airport,” said Stratech Executive Chairman, Dr. David K.M. Chew.
