Etisalat has secured naming rights to the Al Qusais station on the forthcoming Metro Green Line.

Etisalat has announced that it has won naming rights for the Al Qusais station on the new Dubai Metro.

The station, which is the first on the Green Line of the mass transit system, will be named 'Etisalat Station', and will primarily serve commuters entering Dubai from the Northern Emirates.

Etisalat also said that the station would serve "as a mini technology hub showcasing the latest developments in UAE telecommunications industry" according to a statement.

Ahmad Abdulkarim Julfar, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Etisalat said: "Etisalat endeavours to extend reach of its customers by providing them technological means to connect. Our collaboration with the RTA for the historic Dubai Metro Project helps us in furthering our commitment, by providing physical connectivity through the Etisalat station, in addition to our all pervasive virtual connect. Etisalat is proud to be associated with this National project, and is committed to support the advancement of our national infrastructure, while serving the public at large."

The Green Line is due to open in June 2010.
