The award was given to Dubai Customs in recognition to its efforts in facilitating passage and flow of passengers in airports and improving air cargo operations and procedures. By updating and continuous improving of customs systems and technologies at Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport, operational efficiency increased.
