Trial runs on the world’s first automated aerial taxis (AAT) are expected to begin by the end of the year.

According to Gulf News, the two-seater AAT will undergo test flights and safety checks over the next five years.

Meanwhile, the RTA and Dubai Civil Aviation Authority will formulate new regulations and rules for the transport system.

Mo Salah’s doppelganger substitutes him in some ads

  • Ahmad Bahaa is an engineer
  • He appeared in Eyptian Vodafone and Pepsi ads

Bahaa lives in Egypt and works as an engineer, but he has also substituted Salah in some advertisements, Dubai daily Gulf News reported on Sunday.

“I do some of Mo’s shots for his advertisements when he is busy with the English Premier League,” Bahaa said I an interview with an Egyptian TV channel.

He appeared instead of Salah in the Vodafone and Pepsi ads, in the parts which are shot in Egypt.

A video shows Salah’s reaction after he met Bahaa, as the footballer himself was surprised by the resemblance.
