Two runways at Dubai International are to undergo a runway upgrade.
 Dubai Airports confirmed that all systems are to go for a comprehensive runway upgrade project set to be launched at Dubai International on May 1, 2014 to boost safety, service and capacity levels.
The upgrade work will last 80 days during which the runways will be closed alternatively -- the southern runway from May 1 to May 31, and the northern runway from May 31 to July 20, 2014. The project involves the resurfacing of the entire 4,000-metre long northern runway, which is nearing the end of its design life, as well as the upgrading of runway lighting and construction of additional taxiways and rapid exits on the southern runway.
During this period the number of flights at Dubai International will be reduced by 26 per cent while flight movements at Al Maktoum International at Dubai World Central (DWC) are set to increase dramatically as eight airlines -- flydubai, PAL Express, Jet Airways, Royal Brunei Airlines, Yemenia Airlines, Equatorial Congo Airlines, Malaysia Airlines and Ural Airlines -- that currently operate into Dubai International have reserved slots to operate into Dubai’s second airport during the 80-day period. More than 300 flights a week are expected to depart from Dubai’s second airport during this period.
Paul Griffiths, Dubai Airports CEO said: “We have planned this project to optimise capacity while protecting service levels and, in conjunction with Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects, airlines and other stakeholders, have deployed all the resources necessary to make it as smooth and seamless as possible. While we regret any inconvenience caused to our airline customers and our passengers, these upgrades are necessary to heighten safety, boost capacity and pave the way for future expansion.”
Passenger advisory
During the 80-day period, Dubai Airports is urging passengers to double-check with their respective airlines’ websites to confirm their airport of departure or arrival. Dubai Airports’ website www.dubaiairports.ae can also be consulted. While all Emirates flights will continue to operate out of Dubai International, a total of 14 airlines, including flydubai, have reserved slots for flights at DWC during the 80-day period. Six other airlines -- Wizz Air, Gulf Air, Jazeera Airlines, Qatar Airways, Eastern Horizon Airlines and Eastern SkyJets -- already operate out of DWC.
Additionally, passengers and residents in the vicinity of the airport should be prepared for extra construction-related road traffic which may also increase travel times to and from Dubai International.
