Al Maktoum Airport 'to open in 2010'

The eagerly awaited Dubai World Central (DWC) project will launch its first flagship development in June 2010, when the Al Maktoum International Airport will open to the public for the first time.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation, confirmed the opening date ahead of the Airport Show 2009, which is being held from today (May 19th) until May 21st.

"Our vision for Dubai is to be an unparalleled global commercial, trade and transportation hub with an integrated multi-modal logistics platform in DWC," he commented.

This last element, he averred, will change the parameters of all known land, air and sea transport from the emirate forever.

Al Maktoum International will be the largest airport in the world when it opens and will generate expansive trade opportunities for international commerce and industry, in addition to catering to the high standards of Emiratis and visitors to the emirate.

It will take the title the world's biggest airport from Saudi Arabia's King Al Fahd International in Damman.ADNFCR-2019-ID-19177505-ADNFCR
