The Dubai International Airport’s runway would close for an upgrade next year. Taking cognizance of the situation, Emirates Airline will cancel some flights as well as reduce frequencies to some locations. Dubai International’s (DXB) southern runway would be closed for up gradation between April 16 and May 30, 2019. During this period, Emirates also intends to re-time some flights according to availability of slots.
Dubai Airport has clarified that airlines would be expected to reduce their operations during the 45 day closure period which would be impacted due to significant capacity reduction as an outcome of single runway operations.
An Emirates spokesperson has stated that the airline would ensure optimised operational capacity and would work in close collaboration with all its stakeholders.
