Etihad should consider a touchdown in Sharjah |

"The UAE is fortunate to host two of the world’s greatest airlines along with a number of airports, including the world’s busiest in Dubai. Today, Dubai Airport is a global hub that has overtaken Heathrow as the world’s busiest airport by passenger traffic. In fact, Dubai’s airport has been so successful it is running out of space.

According to senior officials, Emirates airline, the emirate’s flagship carrier, is expected to move all of its operations to Dubai’s new Al Maktoum International Airport southwards near Jebel Ali sometime “after 2020”.

The new airport will capitalise on the growing population of residents near what is known as New Dubai areas such as Jumeirah Lake Towers and Dubai Marina, and will also serve the newly named Dubai South district, located midway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai and to host the World Expo 2020. According to Paul Griffiths, Dubai Airports’ CEO, Dubai International Airport could be shut down in the future while the emirate decides to switch back to a single mega airport model."
