DXB airport partially closed for 45 days
In another bit of news, major renovation work has been undertaken on the southern runway of the Dubai International Airport (DXB). Due to which it will be closed for 45 days, from 16th of April 2019 to 30th of May 2019. Since the secondary runway will be unavailable for operations for one and a half months. The operational capacity of DXB is reduced to quite an extent as now. It is left with only one runway, the northern runway, to serve the public.
This was a planned move and hence extensive preparations were done and all backup plans were put in place. So that minimum amount of discomfort is caused to the travellers. The Dubai Airport Corporation, the company which manages the Airports, introduced a slew of measures to reduce the pain of its customers. Many flights have been temporarily shifted to the second airport, the Al Maktoum International Airport, for sharing the load during the partial closure of DXB.
Some people are even speculating that the timing of the sale introduced by Emirates may have something to do with the repair work being carried out. As a healing touch to the travelling public, who may be inconvenienced by the current situation.
