Dubai Airport aircraft arrivals to reach 45 an hour by 2016

(MENAFN) Dubai International Airports' aircraft arrivals are set to reach 45 aircrafts an hour by 2016 compared to the present 33 following the recent upgrade of the runways, Gulf Business reported.

According to Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA), the renovated runways are now equipped with a high speed turnoff which will allow aircrafts to vacate quickly and permit others to land or depart in a shorter space of time.

The refurbishment project, which lasted for 80 days, involved the construction of additional taxiways and rapid exits on the southern runway, resurfacing the entire 4,000-metre long northern runway and upgrading the runway lighting.

"The upgraded runways would go a long way in handling the air traffic which has been consistently growing between 5 to 7 percent annually, higher than the global average of 3.5 percent," DCAA said in a statement.
