Don't mix up transfer and transit. Transit passengers are those who don't change planges and flight numbers. I.e. pax of Garuda's CGK-DXB-AMS flights who stay on this flight from CGK to AMS. All other passengers who don't have DXB as their origin/destination are transfer passengers and thus counted twice (i.e. all EK pax who i.e. fly from say Europe to South East Asia via Dubai; LHR-DXB-MNL, FRA-DXB-SYD, YYZ-DXB-BLR, ... - all pax on those routings are counted twice in Dubai) - same procedure on all airports worldwide.

Dubai may delay opening of new passenger airport

DUBAI - Dubai Airports said on Tuesday it may delay the scheduled March opening of a passenger terminal at a new airport as it unveiled plans to expand capacity at its old airport to 90 million passengers by 2018.

'We are currently reviewing the master plan for the new airport,' the CEO of Dubai Airports, Paul Griffith, told reporters.

'With everything going on time and according to schedule, we are reviewing the opening date for the new terminal and we may push it a little just to get everything right,' he said.

But the opening would still take place before the end of 2011. 'We are talking just months ... It looks though that it is going to be later in the year,' he said.

In June, the Gulf city state opened Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International Airport, touted to become the world's largest when completed. It has so far been confined to cargo.

The airports chief also unveiled plans to expand the capacity of Dubai International Airport to 90 million passengers a year by 2018, from 60 million at present.

'We are about to unveil an expensive master plan for this airport,' he said on the sidelines of a Middle East Business Aviation show. 'It will give us a big increase in capacity to 90 million by 2018.'

He said the current capacity of 60 million passengers would rise to 75 million when concourse three opens in 2012.

'The growth here is going to be very strong and it will take the pressure off us having to complete Al-Maktoum airport in quite the timescale we were looking at before,' he added. -- AFP

I am not exactly sure but I think the interior was designed by Paul Andreu and the exterior (Concourse 2) by the Dar Al-Handasah group.

That would definitely make it necessary to build at least a 3rd runway, because it's simply not possible to handle 90 million passengers annually with just 2 runways.

But if you look at aerials you quickly realize that there is no space around DXB whatsoever.

Dubai airport handles 15% more passengers in 2010

December passenger numbers reached 4.2 million, an increase of 11.6 per cent compared to 3.8 million recorded during the same month in 2009.

Staff Report

January 26, 2011


The Dubai International Airport saw 2010 passenger traffic reaching an historic 47.2 million, up 15.3 per cent over 40.9 million in 2009 and 2.4 per cent more than the 46.1 million originally projected for the year.
According to the annual traffic report issued on Wednesday by Dubai Airports, December passenger numbers reached 4.2 million, an increase of 11.6 per cent compared to 3.8 million recorded during the same month in 2009. In terms of monthly traffic, the airport crossed the four million mark for the third consecutive month in December, and for the fourth time in 2010.
Dubai International also witnessed strong cargo traffic growth in 2010 following a surge in air freight volumes during the first three quarters of the year as the global economy recovered and companies worldwide cleared inventories.

Air freight traffic growth slowed to single-digit monthly increases during the latter part of the year including December when the facility handled 188,103 tonnes of freight in compared to 182,874 tonnes in the corresponding month in 2009, an increase of 2.9 per cent. Annual cargo traffic rose to 2.27 million tonnes, a robust 17.7 per cent rise over the 1.93 million tonnes recorded in 2009.
Even with the trend of moderate cargo traffic growth expected to continue globally in 2011, freight volumes are fast-approaching Dubai's 2.5-million tonnes of capacity and should elevate the importance of Dubai World Central - Al Maktoum International in accommodating additional cargo traffic.
Shaikh Ahmad Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Dubai Airports, attributed Dubai International's continued success to Dubai's progressive aviation model.
"The key to our success has been our coordinated and supportive approach to aviation," said Shaikh Ahmad. "Dubai has a model, unlike Europe and elsewhere, that recognises aviation's strategic importance and promotes growth in the sector. It starts with an open skies policy, competitive rates and a tax-free environment that has attracted over 130 airlines to Dubai and extends to strategic investments in top-flight aviation infrastructure that promote high service standards and sustain rapid growth. This combined with our geocentric location, which can effectively connect any two major cities in the world, will drive further expansion and continued benefits to consumers across the globe."
Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, added: "It was a year in which we celebrated many milestones. We surpassed our growth projections, ushered in Dubai's status as a twin-airport city with the opening of Dubai World Central - Al Maktoum International in June and celebrated Dubai International's 50th anniversary.
"The growth story continues in 2011 with passenger numbers expected to surge another 11 per cent to 52.2 million. As a result, we have plans to boost capacity on the ground and in the air to ensure we can accommodate the growth while improving service across the airport."

Is there a decent location for spotters to take pictures upon arrival and take off? Any popular spots in the particular?

How will the airport handle such a large figure of traffic with 2 runways?
From the aerial views there doesnt really appear to be any more room to add a 3rd runway...

I have posted your question in the "UAE Aviation News and Discussion" thread; maybe a local forum member can help you with your question.

I don't live in Dubai and am not entirely sure of the best locations, but maybe you should try Al Rashidiya Park, Mushrif Park (if you want to be directly under the airplanes as they descend or depart), or maybe one of the neighborhoods near the airport.

I have never done airplane/airport spotting myself, so I am not sure if there are certain locations that work the best. Hope this helps.
