With an area of 145 square kilometres, Dubai South is Dubai’s largest single urban master development focusing on an aviation and logistics ecosystem that houses the world’s largest airport when fully operational, complemented by a multi-modal transport infrastructure connecting air, land and sea.


The goal is to make Al Maktoum International Airport located in Dubai South the world’s largest airport by 2050, capable of accommodating up to 255 million passengers annually.

Dubai South recently tweeted: “#DubaiSouth will be home to the world’s largest airport once complete, and a multi-modal transport infrastructure linking air, land, and sea. Along with the advantages of a business-friendly free zone, it will also provide a diverse range of residential options.”

Early this year, there were reports of continuing the earlier plan set out for the Dh120 billion (US$ 33 billion) expansion of Al Maktoum International Airport, also known as Dubai World Central (DWC), in phases.

Dubai’s second international airport opened on June 27, 2010 for cargo operations, followed by passenger flights in October 2013, with a terminal capacity of 5-7 million passengers.

Once completed, the DWC will be the world’s largest global gateway with a capacity for more than 160 million passengers per year. It will also serve as a multi-modal logistics hub for 12 million tonnes of freight.

The DWC is the centre of the multiphase development of six clustered zones in Dubai Zone that includes the Dubai Logistics City, Commercial City, Residential City, Aviation City and the Golf City.
