Emirates to establish an Engine repair and overhaul facility in Dubai

21 June, 2011

Over 300 engines to be serviced annually

Emirates Airline has unveiled plans for the construction of the most technologically-advanced Engine Overhaul Shop in Asia.

The state-of-the-art Engine Shop will complement the present Test Cell Facility in Dubai and will be constructed on a 90,000 square meter piece of land at an estimated cost of US $120 million. The growth of the Emirates fleet and the subsequent number of operating engines have necessitated the need for an in-house Engine Shop in Dubai to provide the most cost-effective, efficient engine maintenance.

“The establishment of an Engine Shop reemphasizes Emirates’ commitment to provide the highest standard of in-house maintenance to its fleet, utilizing best practices,” said His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum. “The Engine Shop will create over 500 new job opportunities, with a large percentage of these to be occupied by UAE nationals.”

The Engine Shop will have the capability of performing 300 engine repairs per annum for the GE90 and GP7000 engines fitted to the B777 and A380 aircraft. This announcement represents another milestone for Emirates Engineering in their efforts to increase engine maintenance capability in terms of volume and repairs. It is anticipated that construction will commence by first quarter of 2012 and commissioned by the fourth quarter of 2014.

Emirates has signed a Letter of Intent with General Electric (GE) to oversee the design and construction of the Shop using the most advanced technology, equipment and best practices in the industry.

“We are very pleased and proud to be working with Emirates in supporting the building of the Engine Shop and to use GE expertise in this field to introduce best industry practices in managing engine repairs,” said Mr Muhammad Al-Lamadani, Senior Executive Sales, VP GE International Inc.

Dubai International Airport in line for $7.8bn expansion

The already monumental Dubai International Airport is set to get a whole lot bigger, with confirmation earlier of approval for a US$7.8 billion expansion plan.

Under the proposals, capacity at the property will increase from 60 million to 90 million passengers per year, allowing Dubai to challenge for a place at the very top of the international arrivals league.

The plan is designed to deliver aviation infrastructure which will support the continuation of the sector’s impressive growth.

It responds to a ten year traffic forecast for Dubai International (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC) that projects international passenger and cargo traffic will increase at an average annual growth rate of 7.2 per cent and 6.7 per cent respectively.

“The combination of rallying tourism, Dubai’s proximity to the emerging economies of India and China, and the emirates’ established role as a trading hub, is together expected to drive traffic growth and further elevate Dubai’s status as a global centre for aviation,” said HH Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Airports.

The strategy includes aggressive expansion plans for airspace, airfield, aircraft stands and terminal areas at Dubai International over the remainder of the decade which will optimise investment, deliver timely capacity and create a robust revenue stream, fuelled by increased commercial and retail income, which will fund the development of Dubai World Central in the long term.

Expansion in the air

Within the local airport environment, airspace expansion plans focus on optimising runway capacity and implementing efficient systems and processes in order to accommodate and manage additional aircraft movements.

Beyond the vicinity of the airport itself, Dubai Airports is engaging national and regional civil aviation authorities and air navigation service providers to ensure that air routes are decongested, bottlenecks are reduced and latent airspace capacity is unlocked.

Next generation technology such as performance based navigation and dynamic airspace management will be deployed over the coming years to harness the capabilities of modern fleets and increase airspace capacity.

UAE to start charging airport service fee

Airport passengers leaving the UAE will be charged a service fee of five dirhams, UAE daily Gulf News reported on Monday.

The additional fee will come into force on July 29, 2011, and will be built into the ticket price, but will not be applicable to transit passengers, the report added.

"This is a service fee, which is related to safety and security of passengers and travelling public out of UAE airports,” the paper quoted General Civil Aviation Authority’s (GCAA) Director General Saif Mohammad al-Suwaidi as saying.

"The decision will be implemented by the UAE Government and has been issued by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai," the paper cited a GCAA spokesperson as saying.

Passenger volumes at Dubai International Airport are set to exceed 75 million by 2015, according to a statement from Dubai Airports.

Around 3.97 million passengers passed through the world's fourth busiest airport for international passenger traffic in May, compared with 3.65 million passengers during the same month in 2010.

Dubai International Registers Record Passenger Traffic

Quote:
25 July 2011


Dubai Airports today released mid-year traffic results which confirm Dubai International recorded the busiest six months in its 50 year history as 24.6 million passengers passed through the world’s fourth busiest airport for international passenger traffic during the first half of 2011, compared to 22.6 million in the corresponding period in 2010, an increase of 8.9 per cent.

In June, Dubai International handled a total of 4.07 million passengers up 10.4 per cent from the 3.68 million who passed through the airport in June 2010. The average monthly passenger traffic recorded in the first half of 2011 stands at 4.09 million as compared to 3.76 million during the corresponding period in 2010. The year to date daily average passenger throughput at Dubai International reached 135,700 compared to 124,600 recorded during the first six months of 2010.

Aircraft movements in June totalled 26,101 up 5 per cent from 24,847 registered during the corresponding period in 2010. Year to date aircraft movements reached 159,372, an increase of 6.2 per cent compared to 150,095 recorded during the first half of 2010.

In terms of top destinations served by Dubai International, the five countries with the greatest passenger volumes year to date are India, U.K., Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Iran. The fastest growing regions for passenger traffic during the first half of the year include Eastern Europe (+302.4%), AGCC (+28.2%), Russia & CIS (+20.8%), North America (+16.8%), Asia Pacific (+13.2%), and the Indian Subcontinent (+8.3%).

During the first half of 2011, air cargo volumes remained steady with 1.058 million tonnes of freight being processed through the facility compared to 1.055 million tonnes during the same period in 2010, an increase of 0.3 per cent. In June, Dubai International handled a total of 183,365 tonnes of cargo an increase of 3.4 per cent compared to 177,285 tonnes in June 2010.

“As the numbers clearly suggest, robust passenger traffic growth continues despite high fuel prices and growing economic uncertainty in Europe and the U.S.,” said Paul Griffiths, CEO, Dubai Airports. “This is being driven by the addition of new routes and frequencies, more wide-bodied aircraft as well as by the attractiveness of Dubai as a business and tourist destination and an efficient transit point. Our planned US$7.8 billion expansion of Dubai International is well-timed to accommodate the expected average annual growth of 7.2 per cent over the next ten years.”

Griffiths said that in the first half of 2011 over 200 new weekly flights were launched to 19 new destinations across Asia, Europe and Africa by different passenger carriers, including Emirates and flydubai. Dubai International currently serves 150 airlines flying to over 220 destinations across six continents.

Dubai International posts record traffic results in July

Quote:
25 August 2011

Dubai International started the second half of 2011 on a record-setting pace posting a monthly passenger total of 4.7 million that eclipsed the previous high water mark of 4.3 million set in July 2010.

Dubai Airports’ latest traffic numbers reveal that Dubai International handled a total of 4,724,109 passengers in July compared to 4,307,926 in July 2010, a year on year increase of 9.7 per cent. Year to date traffic reached 29,291,927 up 9 per cent compared to 26,870,440 in the corresponding period in 2010.

The largest regional traffic growth in July in terms of total passenger numbers was recorded on routes to and from AGCC (+218,987), the Indian subcontinent (+68,063), Western Europe (+58,586) and North America (+37,435). The fastest growing regions on a percentage basis were AGCC (+34 per cent), North America (+28.3 per cent), Eastern Europe (24.3 per cent) and South America (+18.5 per cent). On a country level, the largest gains were seen on traffic to and from Saudi Arabia (+127,882 passengers), the USA (+38,070) and Qatar (+35,210).

Aircraft movements during July totalled 27,166, up 4.2 per cent from the 26,065 posted during the same period last year. Year to date aircraft movements numbered 317,664 up 6.8 per cent from 297,355 posted during the first seven months of 2010.

July air freight volumes dipped slightly as Dubai International handled 192,538 tonnes of freight compared to 197,845 tonnes during the same period in 2010, down 2.7 per cent. Year to date Dubai International has handled a total of 1,250,489 tonnes of cargo, compared to 1,252,505 tonnes during the same period last year, a contraction of 0.16 per cent.

“This latest milestone further illustrates Dubai International’s emergence as a preeminent global hub,” said Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports. “Not only did we set a new record, we surpassed the previous high point by over 400,000 passengers. Dubai International offers more flights to more destinations by more airlines than ever before which has had an almost exponential effect on connectivity and customer choice. Combined with Dubai’s burgeoning attractiveness as a centre for business and tourism, this is sure to fuel future expansion.”

“Dubai International is currently ranked as the fourth busiest airport worldwide for international passenger traffic. However, we are hot on the heels of Hong Kong International, and aspire to take over the number three spot by the end of the year,” Griffiths added.

Dubai International connects over 220 destinations across six continents on more than 150 airlines. Passenger numbers are projected to top 51 million by the end of 2011 and reach 98 million by 2020.

I have a question...

Why are the runways at Dubai so long? Arn't they 4500m long? Even places like Heathrow and Atlanta which are both very busy dnt have runways that long...

It is to do with aircraft size? Manchester airport has dual 3000m runways in a parallel layout but can land an A380 fine

i'm guessing it has something to do with the climate...
you usually need longer runway length in warmer-than-standard temperatures due to decrease in air density...
if at 15C a plane may use 6,000ft, in 35C it might use up to 8,000ft (don't know the exact calculation though; it's usually written on the POH)...
