How is the plan proceeding for that "Super Airport" with the different hubs throughout the airport area? There was talk of pre-check in and underground trains and whatnot.

They are expanding the current capacity of that airport to 26 million but otherwise nothing. No trains, no giant futuristic terminals, no pre-check in, nothing, or at least not yet.

EDIT: They are also expanding the metro to connect the new airport to the public transit system, but that's mostly because the airport is also near the location of the Expo 2020 site.

What a sh*t video this is.

Funny how it advertises how "effortless" it will be to get around the new airport and then describes like 20+ stages of passenger movement (metro line, main departure terminal, security control, underground atm station, ride with the atm line, satellite concourse etc.).

Transiting and getting to your gate at such a huge airport will be a nightmare. Airport design should eliminate the need for underground railways, satellite terminals and other things that make it longer and more difficult to reach your gate.

If this monster ever gets constructed, I won't be surprised if (1st thing) the Dubai residents will prefer to fly from the old airport and (2nd thing) the transit passengers will choose to travel via more compact airports such as Doha and Abu Dhabi.

I think it's good. The train will connect all concourses together. Should require much less walking then most major airports.

I kinda have to agree after watching the video: "EFFORTLESSLY walk 400 meters, then EFFORTLESSLY go down one floor to the APM, then EFFORTLESSLY go through immigration, then EFFORTLESSLY descend another floor to the second APM..."

However this is clearly an airport designed with transfer passengers in mind and not O&D passengers, and imo it looks like it'll do a very good job of moving transfer passengers from one plane to another. That being said, good freaking luck if your plane lands at Gate C 45 minutes late and you have 5 min to catch your connecting flight at Gate F

Emirates extends agreement with Mauritius and Seychelles

Chris Nelson

April 25, 2017 Updated: April 25, 2017 03:59 PM

Emirates on Tuesday renewed global marketing agreements with Mauritius and Seychelles by extending its Memorandum of Understanding with the tourism boards of the two Indian Ocean countries.

Emirates started operations to Mauritius in September 2002 with three weekly flights. A daily A380 service was launched in December 2013, and a double-daily service was introduced in October 2014, following strong demand for Emirates’ flagship aircraft on this route. In 2016, more than 1,200,000 tourists visited Mauritius.


In June 2015, Emirates increased its capacity to the Seychelles, when it switched from an Airbus 330-200 used on one of two daily services to a larger Boeing 777-300ER. The introduction of the Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, which operates as flight EK 705 from Dubai and as EK 706 on the return flight, increased the overall capacity on the route by 1,722 seats per week and made the route an all-Boeing 777 operation.



The MoUs were signed on the sideline of the Arabian Travel Market (ATM).

"Our relationship with Mauritius and Seychelles is very important to us. Our success on the routes to these island destinations is the result of relentless efforts by all parties. Our joint activities have been fruitful and this can be demonstrated by the fact that we operate a double-daily service to both destinations; the Mauritius route being served by an Emirates A380," said Orhan Abbas, Emirates’ senior vice president, commercial operations for Africa.


Various joint activities will be developed under the agreement, such as attendance of tourism trade shows and fairs, trade familiarisation trips, product presentations and workshops.

"We are delighted to renew our partnership with Emirates to create greater awareness of our beautiful destination through joint media and trade activities. The facilities extended by Emirates to the Mauritian trade through discounted tickets to MTPA-supported trade fairs and roadshows will certainly benefit the local industry." said Kevin Ramkaloan.


Emirates’ connects the two islands to Dubai, and onwards to over 150 other destinations in the Middle East, Asia, Australasia, the Americas and Europe with multiple daily connections. The destinations’ key markets are France, Reunion, the United Kingdom, South Africa, China, Germany, Italy, UAE, UK, Russia, Switzerland and India.

Dubai’s two airports are likely to welcome a combined total of 100 million passengers by the end of 2017, according to Paul Griffiths, chief executive officer of Dubai Airports.
...
“If we look forward, the projection for passenger growth in Dubai remains very, very strong. By the end of this year, across the two airports, we’re likely to hit the 100 million mark, and as we edge up towards 2025, we believe that, globally, demand for air travel through Dubai will hit about 142.8 million — 118 million of that we’ve got to accommodate in our existing airport, Dubai International by 2023,” he said.
http://gulfnews.com/business/aviatio...2017-1.2028325

so, with planned expansions, there will be total capacity 240-250millions passengers/year for Dubai in 2025.
Increasing DBX capacity to 118mio or more gives some chance of it achieving wold's busiest airport title before Emirates moves operation to the new airport.
lets see

edit: day later it was corrected to 90+ millions in 2017, which is much more likely

Superjumbo Saga, Last Hurrahs Set to Dominate Desert Air Show
November 10, 2017
Bloomberg Excerpt

As aviation executives descend on Dubai for the sheikdom’s biennial air show, the biggest question is whether the expo will lose its sparkle amid tough times for the Persian Gulf’s leading airlines. While smaller in scale than trade fairs held in Paris and Farnborough, England, the event has acquired a unique allure since it began in 1986, hosting a series of industry-shaking jet orders as Mideast carriers piled on planes at their desert mega-hubs. Here’s a summary of the likely talking points at this year’s event, which begins Sunday:

A380’s Last Chance: Can Emirates Save Superjumbo?

Airbus SE’s double-decker jet may be popular with the traveling public but it has fallen out of favor with fleet planners at the world’s major airlines. All except one, that is. Emirates, the world’s biggest long-haul carrier, has built its business around the A380 and is mulling a follow-on deal for at least 20 planes. Top Airbus managers met with Emirates last week for the handover of its 100th example and will have been delighted to hear positive comments about the likelihood of a deal in Dubai, where it is based. Anything short of an order announcement would come as a major shock and could hasten the superjumbo’s demise; a major purchase would give the program a shot in the arm and restore some of the Dubai razzmatazz.

Gulf Loses Aviation Sparkle Amid Etihad, Qatar Woes

Away from the A380, major orders may be thin on the ground. Emirates itself is emerging from the toughest period in a three-decade history, having posted the first earnings decline for at least five years in the 12 months through June after the U.S. imposed a series of travel restrictions amid terror concerns and the low oil price roiled Gulf economies. A jump in first-half profit announced Thursday will go some way to restoring the carrier’s old swagger, but may have come too late for it to place an order for Airbus A350 or Boeing Co. 787 planes that’s been in gestation for years. By comparison, the Mideast’s two other top operators are in a bind. Qatar Airways said this week that it’s headed for an annual loss, wiping out a $525 million year-ago profit, amid a Saudi-led blockade of its home nation that’s also expected to stop executives attending the show. And Etihad Airways has been left reeling following a $1.87 billion loss in 2016 and bankruptcy filings at its Air Berlin Plc and Alitalia SpA offshoots.

There is no construction happening there. The airport did not receive any funding for the project for more than 5 years. It was decided that expanding Dubai Airport is more economically viable.

Mind you...with 250 new MAX a/c on order for Flydubai we might see a bit of work in DWC but the mega project is dead. Flydubai may become a tenant in Midfield ....50 miles west... as well.
