Flydubai has confirmed that it will operate flights to select destinations from Dubai World Central (DWC) due to the upcoming planned 45-day closure of the northern runway at Dubai International Airport (DXB).

The closure, which will be from May 9 until June 22, 2022, is to carry out a complete refurbishment of the runway.

Flights to 34 destinations from flydubai’s network of more than 90 destinations will operate from DWC during the runway refurbishment project including flights to Addis Ababa, Bahrain, Delhi, Jeddah, Kuwait, Mumbai, Muscat and Riyadh.

The airline added that during this period, flights to five of these destinations will also be available from DXB.

Flights to all other flydubai destinations will continue to operate from Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 DXB.

Following the completion of the runway refurbishment project on June 22, the airline confirmed that flights to all destinations will resume from DXB.

The carrier urged passengers to check their departure and arrival airports in advance of travel to ensure they have the correct information. It added that the information is available on its website, with the Manage Booking Section on the website clearly mentioning the booking confirmations. Also, passengers who hold bookings that are affected by this rerouting of flights will be contacted by the airline with further details.

Passengers travelling from DWC will enjoy complimentary parking at the airport. In addition, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will provide a complimentary bus service between all terminals at DXB and DWC every 30 minutes.

“As we saw in 2019, runway enhancement programmes continue to support the long-term vision for Dubai as it reinforces its position as one of the world’s leading aviation hubs. We look forward to the completion of the northern runway refurbishment programme and the efficiencies it will bring to our home at Dubai International (DXB). With flydubai flights operating to select destinations from DWC, we aim to provide our passengers with as much choice as possible to travel across our network with minimum disruption as more countries open up for travel,” said flydubai’s CEO, Ghaith Al Ghaith.

At DXB, the southern runway underwent similar improvements in 2019, while this level of refurbishment was last carried out on the northern runway back in 2014.

According to Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths, customer traffic at DXB is expected to hit 57 million in 2022.
