Only one runway open at Dubai International Airport for six weeks

To ease the pain, some of the flights are operated via Dubai World Central Airport, on the south side of the emirate. Airlines adjust their timetables where necessary.

Runway maintenance takes place on a weekly basis, but once every few years an extensive renovation is needed. The last time the northern runway at Dubai International Airport was overhauled was in 2014.

The southern runway was last renovated in 2019. Then in particular home carrier Emirates has been forced to cut its timetable considerably temporarily. Since the number of flights is even lower than the pre-corona level, the consequences will be less severe than three years ago.
