The under-construction project will open in Q1 2020, in time for Expo 2020 Dubai. The Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP), an autonomous entity responsible for the planning and development of Dubais airports, has embarked on a new expansion project at Al Maktoum International Airport. Approved in 2014, the AED120bn ($32.67bn) expansion project is expected to make the airport the worlds biggest, in terms of size and passenger capacity, by 2050. It will also ease pressure on the nations first airport, Dubai International Airport, which is expected to witness 100 million passengers by the end of 2020, and has limited scope for further growth. The expansion will be executed in two phases over the next six to eight years. After the projects completion, the airport will be able to handle more than 220 million passengers a year. Construction on the first phase of airport expansion began in early-2017 and is expected to be completed by mid-2018.
