Actually that's 495 flights per year, so fewer than 2 flights per day. Can we get a math tutor here?

I see now on looking at the original article it is probably 495 flights per month that Gulf News is saying. But as is typical with Gulf News' poor writing one has to try to figure out what the actual meaning is.

New Dubai airport set for 2027 take-off
By Elizabeth Broomhall

Wednesday, 7 March 2012 12:41 PM

Griffiths says the new airport has been pushed back ten years.

Dubai’s major airport project, the US$34bn Al Maktoum International Airport, is likely to begin full commercial passenger services from 2027, the CEO of Dubai Airports has said.

Part of the Dubai World Central (DWC) logistics complex, the new airport will replace Dubai International as the Middle East’s major aviation hub, and is scheduled to be the world’s largest airport by the time it opens.

“The original [plan] was to have some capacity online for 2017, we’ve pushed that back by about ten years... something around [2027],” Dubai Airports’ CEO Paul Griffiths told Arabian Business in an interview.

“The idea is to build a facility that’s large enough so that Emirates and other airlines could move, not necessarily at the same time, but within a fairly short timeframe.”

Dubai Airports slowed its development of Al Maktoum International in the wake of the global financial crisis, which halted a number of big-ticket projects as government agencies around the emirate struggled to pay trade creditors.

The revised plan included spending US$7.8bn to increase capacity at the existing facility, in a bid to boost cashflow for the new project and maintain Dubai’s status as home to the world’s fourth largest airport.

“Economics have changed enormously in the last four years and obviously we have had to adapt,” said Griffiths.

“We’re changing the timeline and order we bring the facilities online so that there’s more generated cash from this airfield... and a longer timeline to invest. Both of those things will make the cashflow support that we require for the development [of Al Maktoum] much more manageable.

“We [also] realised that during the construction period, if we didn’t have any capacity growth at Dubai International, the opportunity we would be losing to other airports of growing passenger traffic would be significant.”

By the middle of the next decade, the aim is to have a capacity for 80m passengers at the new airport, allowing Dubai’s state-owned carrier Emirates to move its entire operation to the new hub.

The immediate focus is to increase cargo operations at the second airport, and see its first commercial passenger flight at some point this year.

“We have a passenger terminal building at the moment there which we are readying for operation during the course of 2012 but that’s only got a capacity of around 7m passengers, so it’s nowhere near adequate for the Emirates operation.

“The aim is that as soon as we’ve got business for it and its ready for use we will open it… We’ve had a number of discussions with different airlines about potential operations, but passenger airlines tend to plan their operations quite late, so it’s quite likely we’ll be announcing quite late what the plans are for the passenger operation.

He added that the airport had recently announced plans to develop more cargo terminals at Al Maktoum, of a similar size to the existing shed which can handle around 250,000 tonnes of cargo per year.

“The good thing about DWC is that we’ve got plenty of space to build additional facilities.

“We’re looking at developing another two plots, this will give us [a capacity of about] 750,000 tonnes.”

Flydubai denies it will take passengers at Dubai World Central early 2013

Flydubai and civil aviation officials have denied reports that the low-cost carrier will begin passenger operations through Dubai World Central airport by 2013

By Deena Kamel Yousef, Staff Reporter Published: 11:46 March 27, 2012

Dubai Flydubai and civil aviation officials have denied reports that the low-cost carrier will begin passenger operations through Dubai World Central airport by 2013.

“Flydubai does not have any plans to move operations to Dubai World Central by early 2013. We are happy with our current home at Dubai Terminal 2, which is convenient for passengers while offering us operational efficiency,” a Flydubai spokesperson said in an email to Gulf News.

Paul Griffiths, chief executive of Dubai Airports, confirmed that there are no plans for the relocation of Flydubai to DWC airport from Dubai International Airport at this stage.

“Flydubai is an important customer in Dubai Airpots. We are expanding Terminal 2 and work is underway to accommodate the expansion of Flydubai,” he said.

This comes after media reports earlier Tuesday that DWC, the emirate’s second airport, will begin passenger operations in early 2013 with budget airline FlyDubai.


Airfield's director of operation development

The report came from Mohsen Ahmad, the airfield's director of operation development said.

The passenger terminal will cater to low-cost carriers, while Emirates SkyCargo will also move to the new facility, Ahmad said in an interview in Dubai on Tuesday.

Just noticed a test flight of Flydubai Boeing 737 around DWC area today.

Flydubai can still claim they are not using Al Maktoum airport though.

Without a good connection for passengers, DWC wont become a good choice for any airline. What about the plans to extend the red metro line to the airport?
