The next phase of expansion at Al Maktoum International Airport is set to get under way next month, trebling Dubai’s .cargo-handling capacity to more than 12 million tonnes a year

Zain Tahboub, chief adviser and director of excellence and innovation at Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects (DAEP), said that it had recently completed a study with Deloitte looking at the competitiveness of the aviation sector, which came up with a series of recommendations.

Tahboub added: “In the coming month, June, we are going to see some major projects announced and floated for tender," he added.

The forthcoming projects will mainly be based around developing infrastructure at the new Al Maktoum airport, although Tahboub said it had also been given the green light from airport chiefs to go ahead with an initiative known as SP2020-plus at Dubai International Airport.
