(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The refurbishment of two runways at the Dubai International Airport has been carried out with minimal disruptions in flight operations due to the well-planned execution of the complicated project within the 80-day schedule with all the stakeholders working together with a one-team spirit. 

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al Maktoum president of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) and Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) had formed a committee comprising of all concerned departments and companies. This committee under his supervision laid out a perfect programme which lead to the successful completion of the project in record time avoiding any obstacles that could have been caused during the work whilst documenting the workflow in daily reports.

Mohammed Abdulla Ahli director general of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) and CEO of Dubai Air Navigation Services (DANS) said that the project involved the up-gradation and maintenance of the two runways in the most innovative and effective manner without entailing the complete closure of flight operations.

'We were told that no other project of this kind has occurred in the history of civil aviation in which the runway refurbishment was made with the least possible impact on normal flight operations' he remarked. DANS provides Air Traffic Control (ATC) electronic engineering and meteorology services at both Dubai International and Al Maktoum International in Dubai World Central (DWC).

The independently-managed ANSP asserts that the inspirational co-operation among the aviation stakeholders about the need for equipping the world's fastest-growing aviation hub with cutting-edge bigger facilities would go a long way in handling the air traffic which has been consistently growing between five to seven per cent annually higher than the global average of 3.5 per cent.

Dubai International Airport recorded 6.2 per cent surge in the number of passengers which stood at 34.67 mn in first half of 2014 despite over 26 per cent cut in flights during May and June for the refurbishment. Despite the continuous work of the refurbishment project taking place simultaneously the airport was still able to record its eighteenth consecutive month of more than five million passengers.

DANS contributed a significantly big part in the planning of the refurbishment programme by looking at the various flight operation scenarios with the prime aim being the minimal disruption and delays. The project was carried out by the Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP) with the other key players being Dubai Airports Dubai Civil Aviation Authority.

The newly  refurbished runways are the best in the world to land and take off on with an increased capacity for High Speed Turnoff (HST). HST is a long radius taxi-way designed and provided with lighting or marking to define the path of an aircraft travelling at high speed.
