Dubai World Central airport (DWC)

Dubai World Central airport (DWC)

The airport south of Dubai is potentially the largest airport in the world, but is not nearly finished. Several charter airlines fly from Europe to Al Maktoum International Airport, there are just a couple of scheduled flights. Expo 2020, a short distance from the airport, should be one of the main catalysts for aviation growth. After its scheduled opening in October 2020, it will be possible to travel directly by metro between Al Maktoum International Airport, Expo 2020 Dubai, Downtown Dubai and Dubai International Airport.

Al Maktoum International Airport is located south of the city in the area of Dubai South next to the Jebel Ali district. Dubai South is the new brand name of Dubai World Central.

Dubai straddles a natural inlet called Dubai Creek on the southern shores of the Persian Gulf. For more than a century, the area was Dubai’s centre, because of the early city’s reliance on fishing, pearl diving, and maritime trade. Lining the creek are the oldest buildings in Dubai, most of which date from the 1960s and are rarely more than two stories in height. In the Bastakiyyah quarter, on the western shore of the creek, some much older buildings have been restored, and many of these feature the distinctive wind tower design that was imported by Persian merchants early in the 20th century.
