DUBAI’S NEW Al-Maktoum International Airport is unlikely to open to mainline passenger operations before the fourth quarter of this year, despite being given formal approval to handle passenger operations. The airport, which opened in June last year to freight operations, was approved for passenger operations for aircraft with up to 60 occupants, as well as general aviation traffic.
