Dubai Airports to offer incentives to airlines to operate from Al Maktoum International Airport

Dubai: With closure of one of the runways at Dubai International Airport next summer, operator Dubai Airports is getting ready to offer incentives to global carriers to shift some capacity to Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central (DWC) during the 45-day period.

Dubai Airports said in February it plans to close the southern runway at Dubai International Airport from April 16 to May 30, 2019, for refurbishment.

“Any carrier relocating flights to DWC during the runway closure period, including Indian airlines, will not be charged landing and parking fees, and will also have reductions made to other operational costs at DWC,” Khalil Lamrabet, Director of Aviation Business Management at Dubai Airports, told Gulf News on Tuesday.

“There will also be free transport services for passengers transiting between the two airports during the closure period.”

While these particular incentives apply only during the 45-day period, more incentives are being planned going forward. More
