Tag: Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International
Dubai International was yesterday confirmed as the world's second-busiest airport for international passenger traffic, overtaking Charles de Gaulle in Paris for the first time. Since the start of the year, Dubai International has moved up two positions in the global rankings of the Airports Council International (ACI) monthly traffic report.
Fuelled by the rapid growth of Emirates Airline, Dubai International Airport is enjoying a record year so far in 2011 in terms of passenger growth and is on its way to becoming the second busiest airport in the world.
As if Dubai’s first airport, Dubai International Airport, wasn’t enough, the city is in the process of building a second airport, which is planned to be the biggest one in the world. This new airport, Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International in the southern part of the city, will ultimately be able to handle 160 million passengers a year by 2035.
