Dubai will delay the opening of its new Al Maktoum International Airport for a year as the need for extra capacity isn’t imminent, Paul Griffiths, Dubai Airports’ CEO, told Zawya Dow Jones recently. The first passenger terminal at the new airport was due to open in the third quarter of 2009.
“Our new Terminal 3 at Dubai International has taken capacity to 60 million passengers and currently we have approximately 38 million passengers a year,” he said. “We’ve got a few more years before we run out of capacity.”
Once completed, Al Maktoum International Airport, which is four times bigger than the new Hong Kong Airport, will handle more than 120 million passengers a year when ready.
The city’s airline, Emirates, flies to over 100 destinations across the world.
