There are no plans to close DXB but there are plans for EK to move their operations to DWC sometime after 2020

Just to point out that EK pax in DXB grew at sub 9% in 2015, other carriers obviously grew at more like 20%+ so that DXB could grow at 11% overall.

Actually the growth is not that impressive considering DXB operated with 1 runway for 3 months in 2014. Had it not been for the runway closure, DXB would have handled 73m in 2014.

Yeah...it held DXB back a little bit however 2016 will be interesting...with new airlines starting to serve the airport and Emirates increasing its fleet size coupled with the momentum in air traffic in the region, DXB will probably add between 8-10 million more passengers.

They have been losing a few too last/this year...United, Delta, Malaysian, Lufthansa (Munich flight), Austrian, Arik Air....The Indian ones have been there to compensate along with the upgraded services of the A380s....

The problem is, EK will be retiring 26 aircraft next year, so the net increase in aircraft in the fleet will only be 11 aircraft, but the actual capacity increase will be big because the deliveries consist of many A380's. Still, I'm not expecting a big increase. On top of that, FlyDubai will begin shifting operations to DWC - probably by the end of the year - so that will slow down growth even more, and there are fewer airlines serving DXB now compared to last year. This could be one of the slowest growth rates for the airport in over a decade.

Exactly and I expect more to leave this year. EK's growth is hurting the market. For many years EK used to charge fares significantly higher than the competition for flights direct from DXB, but now I've noticed they are becoming more price competitive and this is hurting other carriers' yields. It will only get worse as EK grows since they need a way to fill all those aircraft!

Emirates need to slow growth, DXB airport will be maxed out by 2019 or 2020 EVEN if EK growth slows down from the manic pace of the last 10 years and the giant DWC terminal for EK will take years to build and has not even been started yet.

That is unsurprising seeing as that one terminal will cost the best part of 40% of Dubais annual GDP and is a massive commitment. The last big development for DXB comes on stream this year and gives DXB a nominal capacity of 90m pax which will be taken up by end 2017 the way things look right now...at a slightly slower growth rate.

Interesting.
In the case of US carriers leaving, it will be EK's gain as the airline has recently upgraded services and increased frequencies on many destinations like LA and Washington DC and elsewhere like Auckland, Cebu, Zimbabwe, Zambia and ultimately Panama City if the code-sharing agreement goes through.

However, FlyDubai shift to DWC will be a setback.

Either way, 2016 will have its fair share of challenges. lets see how it goes.

The good thing for us though is that it has brought the fares on their flights down!!! I am not happy however that they are moving back to the 777 from the A380s here in Houston....

True, but you could always fly to JFK and take an EK A380 from there. Or even better, take an EY A380 from JFK.

Yeah, FZ has been rumored to be moving for a while but they haven't yet. Lets see if they even move this year...
Facilities at DWC aren't ready for FZ yet and the airport is in the middle of no where so this will hurt them. I found it interesting that the final plan is to move EK into concourse D, and other airlines will be asked to move to Terminal 2. This will be a huge downgrade for other airlines...
