Dubai World Central to open on June 27

June 02, 2010 - Dubai World Central (DWC), the 140 square km project that will be home to the Al Maktoum Airport, Dubai, will have its first phase opening on June 27, said Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman of Dubai Airports and Chairman of the Dubai Shopping Festival Supreme Committee yesterday.
The announcement flayed rumours that the DWC project would inevitably be delayed. The project will also incorporate Dubai Logistics City, DWC Aviation City and other projects to create the world's first fully-integrated, multi-modal logistics platform in a single, customs-controlled zone. Commenting on Dubai's aviation industry, Sheikh Ahmed said expansion projects are under way at Dubai International Airport, with an aim to increase passenger traffic to 75 million annually. The airport expects the number of users to hit 46 million in 2010 and 100 million by 2020.
