Airline Hub: Airport, Spoke- hub distribution paradigm, Direct flight, Air travel, Cargo airline, Focus city, Dubai International Airport, Emirates , Dublin Airport, Aer Lingus, Depeaking

Product Description
An airline hub is an airport that an airline uses as a transfer point to get passengers to their intended destination. It is part of a hub and spoke model, where travelers moving between airports not served by direct flights change planes en route to their destinations. Many hubs of the airlines are also situated at airports in the cities of the respective head offices. Some airlines may use only a single hub, while other airlines use multiple hubs. Hubs are used for both passenger flights as well as cargo flights. Many airlines also utilize focus cities, which function much the same as hubs. Airlines may also use secondary hubs, a non-technical term for large focus cities. For most non-US airlines, it is more technically correct to use the term home base rather than hub as a majority of their flights are international and the so-called hubs are simply their home countries’ largest airports, such as Dubai International Airport for Emirates Airline or Dublin Airport for Aer Lingus. Indeed, the application of the term hub in such contexts is only recently popularized by American airline industry analysts and often contested by local commentators.

A Diamond in the Desert: Behind the Scenes in Abu Dhabi, the World’s Richest City

Product Description
Arabia in the 1960s – still a land of desert, nomadic tribes, falcons and gazelles. And Abu Dhabi, perched on the Gulf Coast, was a poor fishing community. Barely forty years on, it is the richest city on earth, with major stakes in Western economies. And if the extraordinarily ambitious plans for the capital of the United Arab Emirates succeed, its future impact will be global. Jo Tatchell’s family arrived in Abu Dhabi in 1974 when there were only a few thousand inhabitants. She left as a young adult in the nineties, choosing personal freedom over a life of comfort and ease. But in recent years, as Abu Dhabi has become ever more significant on the world stage, she has returned to get behind the headlines and see how the city is changing for herself. In this illuminating portrait, she shows Abu Dhabi past and present through the eyes of its people – from sheikhs to Indian immigrants, housewives to ex-pats – as well as her own. Tales of the Bedus’ traditional hospitality and of expeditions into the desert mingle with accounts of hair-raising decadence and double standards, as she reveals a society and culture almost derailed by sudden, extreme wealth. And yet, as she discovers, Abu Dhabi is about to change again. Its rulers have a grand vision of a cultural bridge between Islam and the West, which might just transform our world.

Abu Dhabi – Ancient and Modern by Design

Dhabi Means Deer

The second largest city, and capitol of the United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi sits upon an island that is T-shaped, jutting out into the Persian Gulf from the west coast side.  The city of Abu Dhabi covers a huge area, some twenty six thousand square miles, and has a population estimated to be about 860,000 as of the year 2007.

The term Dhabi means deer in Arabic and some speculate that is a nickname for an original “man who chased deer” or even the “father of deer”.  Some of Bedouin origins claim that Umm Dhabi means “mother of the deer”.   Long ago Abu Dhabi had the name of milh, which means salt in Arabic.  This was most likely due to the saltiness of the water.  There is still an island on the coast of Abu Dhabi called milh.  In any case, the region is extremely ancient and contains lots of history.

 

Home of the Emirati Royal Family

As capitol of the seven emirates, Abu Dhabi holds the federal government’s most important offices and is home to the entire Emirati Royal Family.  The area has become a huge cosmopolitan populous and is growing rapidly.  The income average is quite high, causing the metropolis to become more and more westernized, surpassing most other Arab towns and cities in that respect.

 

Abu Dhabi signifies wealth and power

The city of Abu Dhabi is the industrial and political centre of the country.  Abu Dhabi represents fifteen percent of the GDP for the United Arab Emirates, and is home base to some financial institutions of extreme importance to the region.  The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange, the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates, along with being the corporate headquarters to many multinational companies and corporations are based in Abu Dhabi.

As one of the largest oil producers in the world, Abu Dhabi strives to diversify the economy by way of investing in tourism and financial services.

 

Steeped in history

The emirate known now as Abu Dhabi was first settled around the third millennium BC, being mostly inhabited by nomadic herders and fishermen.  The modern Abu Dhabi can follow its roots back to tribal confederations that were of note back into the eighteenth century.  The Bani Yas tribe took control, including over Dubai until the nineteenth century when Dubai and Abu Dhabi parted company and went their own ways.  Abu Dhabi became known for camel herding and growing dates and other vegetables around several inland oasis such as Al-Ain and Liwa.  Pearl diving was a lucrative means of income, along with off coast fishing.

 

From pearls to petroleum

 

As petroleum became an important commodity in the late 1930’s drilling became another industry although when oil was located in 1958, it did not appear to be all that important.

In 1968, the UK announced it would withdraw from the Persian Gulf by 1971.  This led to independence for the Emirates and oil took on much more significance as an income source in the region.  Soon the traditional mud and thatch huts were replaced with modern buildings housing banks and boutiques and finally high rise buildings.  Abu Dhabi moved from being one of the most ancient parts of the world to one of the most stylish and modern.

 

Catering services international provide Abu Dhabi hotel recruitment and other services to the hospitality, catering and hotel trade.

Life in Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi is the second largest city in the UAE and serves as a seat for UAE Government. It has grown to be a cosmopolitan city and is one of the most advanced cities in Arab today. Being the capital of UAE, it is the center of political, industrial, cultural and commercial activities of the country. The number of jobs in Abu Dhabi is huge and the lifestyle offered is excellent, thus, making it one of the best Gulf cities for expatriates to work in. It is always suggested that if one is planning to acquire a job in Abu Dhabi or in any other Gulf city, one should gather more information about the city’s culture and lifestyle. One needs to know about the kind of accommodation, transportation system, cost of living, education for children, city whereabouts, important locations, etc. before arriving in the city. It becomes more vital to be conscious of the know how of the city if one relocates with family, in order to settle down comfortably and adapt to the city’s requirements. Abu Dhabi has a great strategic importance in UAE and enjoys nearly 9% of world’s oil reserves.

The economy of the country is thus heavily dependent on oil and gas industry. Most of the people who wish to join a company in Abu Dhabi land up with a job in oil and gas sector. It being the largest of all industries, the foreign workforce has grown considerably in the last ten years. Employment options in other sectors are also coming up like jobs in banking, jobs in hospitality, jobs in IT and jobs in healthcare. A large number of trained and skilled personnel are hired in such industries from across the world, chiefly from countries like India, Philippines, UK and other European nations. The presence of varied nationalities in the city gives life in Abu Dhabi a cosmopolitan touch and an eclectic appeal. One can apply for Jobs in Abu Dhabi through Gulf news classifieds or even online through recruitment companies, consultants and agencies.

Abu Dhabi is a ninety minutes drive from Dubai but is much more peaceful than the Dubai state. It is a beautiful Middle Eastern city with a lot of vibrancy and dynamism. Abu Dhabi offers a welcoming atmosphere to the foreign workforce by presenting a modern yet culturally focused lifestyle. It is a perfect place to spend time with your family under warmth and luxury. The climate is generally pleasant and the bright sun can be seen throughout the year. Temperature is mildest from October to April with scorching heat and high levels of humidity in summers. The cities in Gulf like Abu Dhabi, Doha, Bahrain, etc are popular among expatriates for their lucrative jobs with high salaries and welcoming lifestyle. The cost of living in Abu Dhabi is not very high since facilities of accommodation and transportation are generally sponsored by the employer.

The only mode of travel in the city is by road, one has to either hire a cab or take a bus to reach other parts of the city. One can even buy own vehicles as buying and selling of cars is convenient in Abu Dhabi. The office PRO offers great help in providing details of the life in Abu Dhabi. For accommodation, the only option available to expatriates is of renting the property. This is because the government discourages the outsiders from buying property in the city unlike in Dubai. It is recommended that before taking up Abu Dhabi jobs, one must check if accommodation is paid or not as living on one’s own can turn out to be an expensive deal. Abu Dhabi is a safe city for women but they are advised to dress modestly to avoid inviting unnecessary attention. It, in fact, provides various sources of recreation with an active night life that lets one enjoy movies, clubbing, games or some other interests. The crime rate of the city is also very low. Abu Dhabi can be an ultimate place to live and work on one’s own term and conditions.

Dubai & Abu Dhabi Look Forward to Booming Real Estate

The property market market in the United Arab Emirates, one of the hottest in the world, is set to continue until 2015 and beyond, according to new reports. Real estate and construction markets in the UAE are primarily focused on Dubai, which has been booming for several years, and the newer market of Abu Dhabi.

Two recent studies by HSBC and Damac Capital International of Dubai both indicate that supply will not catch up to demand for a number of years, keeping the markets strong.

Traditionally the most popular locations with second-home buyers and British investors are Spain and France but Dubai is beginning to rival them. Dubai investment property is attractive due to its tax-free status, excellent facilities and low crime rate.

International investors buying property in Dubai need to concentrate their search for properties in Dubai to the many Freehold Areas in Dubai.

Properties that are suitable for foreign buyers include the following freehold zones: Dubai Sports City , Dubai Marina , I.M.P.Z. International Media Production Zone , Jumeirah Village , The Palm Jumeirah, Shaikh Zayed Road, International City, The Lagoons, Palm Deira, Jebel Ali Airport, Emirates Road, Dubai Land ,Business Bay ,Downtown Dubai and much more

Recently Dubai developers have had to comply with a new piece of legislation Law No 8. This makes escrow accounts compulsory for all Dubai off-plan developments, with money released only on the order of the Dubai Land Department. This move marks an end to the days when any developer could launch a project and collect deposits without a guarantee that the funds would be used correctly. Many pundits feel that this could slow the Dubai market but increase confidence with investors

Middle East online news website Gulfnews.com reports that Dubai will continue to be a strong real estate market, while Abu Dhabi is set to take off. Rental yields in Abu Dhabi are expected to be in excess of 7% until at least 2013 and perhaps beyond.

According to Damac Capital’s analysts Hany Seif and Pamela Chikhani, Dubai will remain a major Gulf real estate market for years to come. By some estimates, over the next 10 years both local and international real estate investors will pump in almost $300 billion into Dubai’s real estate developments. According to HSBC’s real estate analysts, Walid Khalfallah and Majid Azza, Abu Dhabi is becoming a major regional real estate market. “The Abu Dhabi story is gaining credibility. After a slow start to the year, sales activity has picked up in the second half of 2007. The market remains extremely tight, with stronger-than-expected growth in rents [22 per cent] and prices [18 per cent],” they said in a recent report.

Abu Dhabi does not have the liberal international property laws that neighboring Dubai has yet, but things are improving there. The office market is particularly strong and vacancy rates are below 1%. With increased deregulation, Abu Dhabi will continue to gain ground on its more prominent neighbor. Both should see strong growth in the coming years.
