Emirates Are Moving Airport But It Will Take A Few Years


There was a time when the current DXB airport wasn't the biggest in Dubai. And when World Central is completed, it won't be again. By 2025, Emirates will move it's HQ to the new Al Maktoum International Airport. At the moment Dubai International Airport carries around 80m passengers a year, the new airport will be able to carry almost three times that amount. 

The new airport will be built to handle 220 million passengers annually

It is based near the Expo 2020 site and Emirates will move here

This is what the main airport looked like in the 60ies
