Dubai runway reopens

Full operations at Dubai International (DXB) have returned following the reopening of the northern runway.  At the same time flights that had temporarily moved to Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) while the runway upgrades were underway have now returned to Dubai International. 
 
Dubai International now boasts two newly refurbished runways which allow the airport to accommodate more aircraft while improving operational flexibility during busy peak traffic periods.  The runway upgrades were part of Dubai Airports’ master-plan aimed at expanding Dubai International’s capacity to help accommodate more than 103m passengers by 2020.
 
Airlines that have moved flights from DWC back to Dubai International include flydubai, Malaysia Airlines, Royal Brunei and PAL Express as well as selected flights from Qatar Airways and Gulf Air.  Four airlines will continue to offer flights from DWC – Wizz Air, Gulf Air, Qatar Airways and Jazeera Airways.

At what point host airline Emirates will move to DWC is not known but 2020 has been suggested.  It has a planned annual capacity of 12m tonnes of cargo and 160m passengers.  www.dwc.ae
