by Aswani

Dubai, the city of innovation and extravagance, is taking its ambitions to new heights with the expansion of Dubai World Central (DWC), also known as Al Maktoum International Airport. This colossal project promises to redefine air travel, establishing Dubai as a central hub for global commerce and passenger movement.

A Megaproject in the Making

DWC is no ordinary airport. Envisioned to sprawl across a staggering 27 square miles, it will boast a staggering five parallel runways, catering to the busiest of air traffic. This multi-phased development will house four state-of-the-art terminals, equipped with a mind-boggling 400 gates. Upon completion, DWC aims to handle a phenomenal 260 million passengers and a whopping 13 million tons of cargo annually.

A Phased Approach to a Global Hub

The first phase of Al Maktoum International Airport’s expansion is slated for completion by 2034. This initial stage is projected to propel the airport to handle a staggering 150 million passengers annually, solidifying its position as a significant global hub. This initial success will pave the way for the subsequent phases, ultimately leading to the realization of the full vision – the world’s largest airport.
