Dubai airport to boost capacity to 90m passengers a year

21 October 2009

Paul Griffiths, the chief executive of Dubai Airports, has said that Dubai International Airport has increased its projected capacity growth to 90 million passengers at the end of the next decade from its earlier target of 75 million, The National has reported. The capacity gains are expected to come from new systems and processes at the airport, rather than additional infrastructure, he said. The revision follows delays at the emirate's second airport, the $8.2bn (Dhs30.11bn) Al Maktoum International in Jebel Ali, which is scheduled to open for business next year.
