According to a report in Khaleej Times, Emirates airline will move its base from Dubai International Airport (DXB) to Al Maktoum International airport at Dubai World Central (DWC) by 2025.
Located in the south of Dubai near Jebel Ali, DWC is Dubai’s second airport and opened to passenger traffic in October 2013.
Reportedly, Flydubai is also moving to DWC next year. Al Maktoum International airport is part of Dubai World Central (DWC), which will be the world's largest airport once completed, the report said.
Dubai Aviation City Corporation Executive Chairman, Khalifa Al Zaffin, was quoted saying, "We have not officially announced any dates although Tim Clark, President, Emirates airline, has mentioned in the middle of the next decade but that depends on a number of factors."
