The United Arab Emirates has achieved the highest ever ranking from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO's) Universal Safety Oversight Audit Program.

The UAE secured a success rate of 98.86 percent. Welcoming the nation's score, Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the President of the Department of Civil Aviation Authority, told Emirates News Agency: "This global recognition comes as a result of persistent efforts for many years in order to reach this high position that the country deserves. It is an honor to obtain such an assessment result by the ICAO and to accomplish the best result worldwide."

Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, General Civil Aviation Authority (GCCA) Director General, added: "Over the last five years, GCAA has strived to develop and implement superb aviation infrastructure consisting of modern regulation framework, state-of-the-art facilities and innovative technology, along with efficient manpower capacity transforming strategies and plans into tangible reality."
