Dubai airport to close northern runway for 45 days from May 9 for upgrades

Dubai airport to close northern runway for 45 days from May 9 for upgrades 22.03.2022 Dubai International Airport will close one of its two runways for 45 days from May 9 to June 22, temporarily reducing capacity at the world's busiest international hub for upgrade work, operator Dubai Airports said.

The northern runway will be shut for refurbishment to ensure continued safety and efficient operations, Dubai Airports said in a statement on Tuesday.

"While regular runway maintenance is scheduled on a weekly basis, more extensive upgrades such as the one planned require a complete closure of the runway," it said.

"Dubai Airports continues to invest in developing and maintaining its ... infrastructure to enhance customer service quality and capacity and maintain its position as the world’s busiest international airport."

Dubai International Airport is the base for long-haul airline Emirates and discount carrier flydubai. The last time this level of work was carried out on the northern runway was in 2014, while in 2019, the hub closed its southern runway from April 16 to May 30 for resurfacing and replacement of ground lighting.

The airport will continue to operate flights throughout the 45-day refurbishment period, but at a reduced capacity.
Some flights will be redirected to Dubai World Central (DWC), the emirate's second airport, to limit the impact on service during the closure period, Dubai Airports said.
