Dubai Plans To Build Worlds Largest Airport
According to reliable sources, officials involved with the expansion of Al-Maktoum International airport, also known as Dubai World Central (DWC), are actively working behind the scenes, and potential stakeholders have been informally advised to prepare for the resumption of the $33 billion project. Located 23 miles southwest of Dubai’s city center, the project was initially launched as a freight facility, but on October 27, 2013, Dubai World Central opened its passenger terminal with a capacity for 5-7 million passengers, while cargo operations began in 2010.
The authorities have set an ambitious target of creating the world’s largest airport with a capacity of approximately 255 million passengers per year by 2050. While the initial phase is expected to be completed by 2030, the exact timeline will be confirmed when official details are released.
In addition, the geographical expanse of the development is massive, covering a total area of 56 square kilometers.
