UAE Airlines Flyby for UAE National Day 2018

For this year's celebrations, the UAE took the main event to the skies...

For the first time ever, the UAE's four airlines collaborated to bring UAE residents and tourists a show they'll never forget on the occasion of UAE National Day.

Emirates, Etihad, flydubai and Air Arabia joined forces to perform an incredible flyby this year as the centrepiece performance in celebration of the country's 47th National Day, as well as the Year of Zayed.

As part of the display on December 2nd, all four UAE carriers worked in conjunction with Al Fursan, the Emirates' aerobatics team. Together they paid tribute to the UAE's anniversary with the aerial display.
