The estimated cost of the airport is over AED100 million.

The exact timeline for completion has not been announced however the airport is already serving as a major cargo-transport hub

Once complete, the airport will have an estimated capacity of over 160 million passengers annually

Part of the airport is already in operation, DWC serves as a major cargo-transport hub and welcomed over one million passengers in the first of 2019, up 141.1% year on year, as it alleviated stress from DXB amid 45-day runway repairs.

DWC is currently served by 11 passenger airlines operating an average of 500 weekly flights to 31 international destinations. It is also home to 18 cargo operators that fly to as many as 45 cities around the world.
