Dubai World Central International Airport (IATA: JXB, ICAO: Unknown) is a colossal new airport under construction near Jebel Ali, South of Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.

It will be officially known as Al Maktoum International Airport. It has been named after the late Sheikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the former ruler of Dubai. Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum (1943 &ndash 4 January 2006) (مكتوم بن راشد آلمكتوم) also referred to as Sheikh Maktoum ( Honourific It will be the main part of Dubai World Central, a planned residential, commercial and logistics complex scheme. Dubai World Central is the Company under which a number of planned projects are being constructed in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. World Central is the world's first truly integrated logistics platform, with all transport modes, logistics and value added services, including manufacturing and assembly, in a single bonded and Free Zone environment
At the heart of this huge new community is the Dubai World Central International Airport, the world's largest passenger and cargo hub, ten times larger than Dubai International Airport and Dubai Cargo Village combined. Many countries have or have had at some time designated areas where companies are taxed very lightly or not at all to encourage development or for some other reason Dubai International Airport (مطار دبي الدولي is an international Airport serving Dubai, the largest city of the United Arab Emirates
The airport will have an annual cargo capacity of 12 million tons, more than three times that of Memphis, today's largest cargo hub, and a passenger capacity of more than 120 million - almost 30% more than Atlanta, currently the world's busiest passenger airport. Memphis is a City in the southwest corner of Tennessee, and the County seat of Shelby County.
Built for the future, Dubai World Central International Airport has been designed to handle all next-generation aircraft, including the A380 super-jumbo. WikipediaWikiProject Aircraft. Please see WikipediaWikiProject Aircraft/page content for recommended layout Up to four aircraft will be able to land simultaneously, 24 hours a day, minimising in-air queuing.
The region's biggest airport, Dubai World Central will include:
The airport is planned to have six 4500 m parallel runways, with a large passenger complex in the middle. Three runways would straddle at one side of the complex while three more would be located at the other side. Furthermore, each runway would have extended asphalted pathways on either side which would allow aircraft to by-pass other runways and taxiways without disturbing aircraft movements of these runways and taxiways. The airport is the biggest section/component of Dubai World Central. When fully built it will be capable of handling 120 million passengers and 12 million tons of cargo annually. Its large runways and the distance between would allow simultaneous take-offs and landings. Takeoff is the phase of Flight in which an Aircraft goes through a transition from moving along the ground ( Taxiing) to flying in the air usually Landing is the last part of a Flight, where a flying Animal, Aircraft, or Spacecraft returns to the ground
Dubai's expectations of an exponential rise in passenger traffic over its skies is built on the presumption that it would become the ideal air hub for transiting travellers from the Asia-Pacific Region, South Asia, Greater Middle-east, Africa, Europe, and Australia (for the Kangaroo route--Australia to Europe/Britain and vice versa). The Kangaroo Route traditionally refers to air routes flown by Qantas between the countries of Australia and the United Kingdom, via the Eastern Hemisphere
Upon completion it will be the fourth largest air facility in land area (physical size). Only three other air facilities are/were larger than Dubai World Central:
The air complex would, perhaps, become the most A380-friendly air facility in the world since all the hard-stand aero bridge gates are capable of accommodating the aircraft, as the master plan model suggests. WikipediaWikiProject Aircraft. Please see WikipediaWikiProject Aircraft/page content for recommended layout
The facility, however, will initially service cargo airlines. Several large warehouses and hangars line the westernmost part of the airport. These interlinked warehouses and/or hangars will stretch from end-to-end of the westernmost runway. Each of these warehouses and/or hangars are capable of housing A380 aircraft.
The airport will complement Dubai International Airport, some 40 km (24 miles) away. Dubai International Airport (مطار دبي الدولي is an international Airport serving Dubai, the largest city of the United Arab Emirates The airport itself is surrounded by a large logistics hub, an ultra-luxurious golf resort (with suburban housing interwoven between greens and fairways), an expansive trade and exhibition facility (3 million square meters of exhibition space--would become the world's largest single exhibition site/location/address/destination), a massive commercial district, and a spacious residential/housing district.
Due to the massive physical scale of the masterplan, others would come to claim that Dubai World Central would be the most ambitious airport project ever envisioned. The latest estimates by the government of Dubai peg the price tag at US$ 82 billion. This aerotropolis would be US$62 billion more expensive than the next most expensive airport project Hong Kong-Chek Lap Kok International Airport Core Project--which cost the Hong Kong government around US$ 20 billion (in 1997 dollars). Hong Kong International Airport is the main airport in Hong Kong. Hong Kong ( officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, is a territory located on China 's south coast on the Pearl River Delta, and borders This would also make it the most expensive single project in the world, ever (with the possible exceptions of the Dubai Waterfront, The Palm Deira, and New Songdo Intelligent City). The Dubai Waterfront (now known as Waterfront is expected to become the largest waterfront and largest man-made development in the world The Palm Islands are Artificial islands in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on which major commercial and residential infrastructure will be constructed New Songdo City is a planned international business center to be developed on 1500 acres (6 km² of reclaimed land along Incheon 's waterfront 40 miles (65 km west
Dubai World Central (not just the international airport) will have a total of 100,000 parking slots for automobile vehicles for both its employees, Dubai residents, tourists, and other users. This will give the air facility the distinction of having the largest parking facility in the world.
Dec 2007 Construction of Dubai World Central International Airport appears to be running according to schedule following the recent completion of its first runway.
The A-380 enabled 4. 5km runway was completed within its projected 600 day construction period and will undergo strenuous tests and trials over the next six to eight months in order to fulfill its CAT III-C requirements.
Meanwhile, construction of the airport's approximately US$75 million cargo terminal is 50% complete. The first phase of the project will see the terminal initially handle 700,000 tonnes per annum. By 2013 it is expected to become the largest of its kind in the world, handling more than 12 million tonnes of cargo annually.
The project is expected to be fully built-out and operational by 2017.
