this week — five years after talks on the multi-phased development began.
The 140km2 city, which is ten times the size of the current Dubai International Airport and Cargo Village combined, will comprise Dubai World Central International Airport, and six specialised clustered zones.
Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Department of Civil Aviation president, and Emirates Group chairman, said: “It is geography that makes this vision possible, with huge land availability in a prime location.
“The long-term benefits of Dubai World Central to the UAE, GCC and the wider region are phenomenal and will place this emirate firmly in pole position for regional logistics, tourism and commerce.
“Dubai World Central will not only cater to economic growth but will be a strong catalyst for our next wave of development as a truly global commercial, trade and logistics hub.”
