Dubai reveals new aviation vision to 2045


By Courtney Trenwith

Dubai is working to extend its ambitious aviation growth plan by an additional 15 years to 2045, emphasising the emirate’s desire to remain a global leader in the industry.

The new “extremely long timeframe” was revealed during an exclusive interview with Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths to be published in the June edition of CEO Middle East magazine, a sister publication of Arabian Business.

Government-owned Dubai Airports is undergoing a massive expansion at both Dubai International, which is the world’s second busiest airport by international passenger traffic, and the new Al Maktoum International Airport at Dubai World Central (DWC).

“We’re now working on a master plan which will see how we can produce the right amount of capacity for Dubai’s aviation growth up to 2045, so we are thinking a long way ahead here and there are plenty of options,” Griffiths said. More info
