Cargo Dubai's Al Maktoum airport drops 0.8pc


Al Maktoum International airport (DWC) in Jebel Ali, UAE - one of the top 20 international cargo hubs - achieved volume growth of just 0.8 per cent in 2016 after handling 898,000 tonnes of air freight, down from year-on-year volume growth of 7.7 per in 2015.
But with Dubai International Airport (DXB) to the north transporting 3.4 per cent more cargo in bellyholds throughout 2016, national carrier, Emirates, is registering significant increases in volume, New York's Air Cargo World reported.
DWC is Dubai's newer airport, which hosts Emirates Cargo's full-freighter operation, is located 80 kilometres to the south of DXB.
DWC handled a total of 38,671 aircraft movements last year, down 5.6 per cent compared to 2015, when the airport recorded 40,947 movements. Aircraft movements in the fourth quarter at 9,290 were down 21 per cent compared to 11,763 recorded in the fourth quarter of 2015.
DWC opened in 2010, but its build out is still not finished. Final plans include five runways, 200 widebody aircraft stands and an eight-square-kilometre cargo facility to handle 16 million tonnes of cargo annually. DWC lies at the heart of a so-called an 'aerotropolis,' a city built around a central airport featuring commercial and residential facilities.
DWC's already delayed expansion could be put on hold yet again given that aircraft movements declined in 2016. Emirates earlier stated that it anticipates 2017 will be a lean year and is looking at ways to lower its expenses.
