World Amazing Stuff: World's Largest airport

World's Largest airport

His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, inaugurated the passenger terminal at Al Maktoum International Airport in Jebel Ali, Dubai on Sunday morning dated 27/10/2013.

Located in Jebel Ali and part of Dubai World Central, an "aviation city" that the government has launched as a free economic zone, Al Maktoum International Airport is expected to become the world's largest airport upon completion.

The Dubai aviation industry achieved its biggest milestone, when the emirate's new airport celebrated the arrival of its first commercial flight operated by Hungarian based Wizz Air.

The airport was opened only for cargo in June 2010, while passenger operations were repeatedly delayed and once completed it will feature five runways that will be able to handle an annual capacity of 160 million passengers and 12 million tons of cargo, according to the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
