Why are they making a concourse 3 if they are also building the new Al Makthoum Airport.. A lot of money they spent on these projects..

Snakes-on-a-plane pair held at airport

Airport authorities say they have detained two men who attempted to smuggle 40 pythons on board a flight to Dubai.


Salahudin Rafi, a Jakarta airport official, said that the two Kuwaitis were about to enter the departure area on Friday when X-rays showed their bags were filled with sedated snakes.

The men told investigators that they planned to sell the pythons to collectors in the United Arab Emirates. Mr Rafi said the men were still being questioned yesterday. They face up to seven years in jail and a fine of $32,000 (£20,000).

Is there a thread for the Al Maktoum International airport which is supposed to become the world's largest airport? My search option won't work.

The airport is currently open for freight operations and a low cost terminal is completed. Passenger flights will start from the low cost terminal at the end of this year or early next year.

Thanks for these informations!
I heard that Emirates (apart from cargo) will stay at DXB, can they really expect more than 100 million people per year without it's future fleet of 90 A380's and innumerable 777's and A350's?

The idea was to close the existing Airport when the new one would be fully functional, however that was pre-crisis.

As far as I know, all the international airlines were supposed to move to the new airport and Emirates was supposed to operate from the current one.

Dubai Airports eyes $5.9bn investment by 2020

Andy Sambidge

3 June 2011



Dubai Airport.

Dubai Airports will invest AED22bn ($5.98bn) towards the expansion of Dubai and Al Maktoum International Airports by 2020, a senior official has said.

Speaking on the sidelines of the Airport Show 2011, Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai World Central, said the expansion plans will increase the capacity of the Dubai International Airport to 90 million passengers annually.

The number will increase from the current 60 million upon the completion of plans to build Concourse 4 and the expansion of Terminal 2. Zaffin also said that AED4bn will be invested in the development of the aviation city and the residential city at Al Maktoum Airport at the Dubai World Central.

Dubai Airports forecast earlier this month that international passenger traffic would grow 7.2 percent on average over the next 10 years.

It also projected passenger numbers will reach 98.5 million by 2020 while cargo volumes are expected to top 4.1 million tonnes.

In March, Dubai Airports said the opening of the passenger terminal at the new Al Maktoum airport, estimated to cost around $34bn, would be further delayed till next year.

Separately at the Airport Show, Mohamed Ahmed Abed, director general of King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia, said AED27bn would be spent on new airport developments.

Ras Al Khaimah International Airport has also announced a 10-year development plan worth AED2.5bn, while Fujairah International Airport said it has allocated AED50m towards the expansion and development of the airport this year.

It is expected that an additional AED100m would be allocated for further expansion in 2012, said Dr Khalid Al-Mazrui, the airport's director general.

Fujairah International Airport also announced the selection of ALES for the supply of Air Traffic Control System and ERA for the Wide Area Multilateration radar as part of a AED10m deal.

Airport Show 2011 focused on the huge investments involved in the building of new airports and the expansion of existing airports in the region, which is expected to be worth $90bn in the next few years.

you would be correct. that aircraft loos like boeing 777. the nose wheel is close to the cockpit, so its louder.
