Dubai Airshow 2015: Saab Touts Advanced Technology and Innovative Thinking

At the Dubai Airshow 2015, Saab shows how its advanced technology and innovative thinking gives its customers capabilities the edge.

"Saab is a world leader when it comes to critical aerospace and defence technology," Magnus-Lewis Olsson, head of Saab Market Area Europe, Middle East and Africa said. "We have a proven track record in things that matter to customers in this region; in airborne early warning, air traffic management, command and control, radar, missile systems, ground combat and training, to give just a few examples. We are looking forward to greeting customers from the air, land and sea domains because the Dubai Airshow is an important venue for them all. We will also be pleased to stand alongside our local partners and our local staff, who work closely with us to meet the needs of the UAE and the other customers in the region."

Saab is enjoying a sustained period of expansion. There are few, if any, other defence, security and aerospace suppliers that can deliver the range of effective and efficient products found in the Saab portfolio.The UAE is the perfect place to demonstrate Saab’s products and capabilities to key customers from the Gulf region and around the globe.

"The Dubai Airshow is a very important event for Saab and the Saab Middle East office," Saab’s Simon Carroll, president and general manager, Saab Middle East explained. "It gives our employees the opportunity to connect and meet with our existing partners in the region, while also showcasing the latest technologies the company has available. As the leading event of its kind in the region, and through its substantial international delegations, the Dubai Airshow is a place for Saab to forge new relationships that could develop into strong business partnerships in the future."
