About Dubai Airport
Dubai Airport in the UAE is the busiest airport on the entire Arabian Peninsula. It’s home to the largest passenger and cargo hub in the world, and it serves more than 220 flights to 62 international destinations (including six domestic destinations), carrying more than 80 million passengers annually.
Dubai Airport has full security screening for all international flights, and Dubai City Airport has full security screening for all domestic flights. Dubai Airport is open to international flights up to 23,000 feet, and there’s no restriction on flying up to the maximum destination height of 25,000 feet.
Dubai City is the UAE’s second-largest city. It’s about four times the size of Dubai Airport and has nine airports, making it a transit airport. Dubai City Airport is just six miles from Dubai International Airport, and it’s within 30 minutes of Dubai’s city center by the Airport Express Train.
Designed to serve the city’s huge passenger and cargo capacity, Dubai City Airport is a terminal-based airport. It features an average hourly capacity of 2,200 departing flights, with 30-minute security screening (on certain international routes).
New York City and Dubai’s flight schedules are set up similarly to New York City and Abu Dhabi’s flight schedules. Dubai is one of only two international airports in the world to have a daily passenger terminal landing from six different flights and six different airports in the world. Dubai’s flight schedule is based on the airlines’ flight schedules.
While Dubai City Airport is accessible for arriving international flights, Dubai International Airport is far more convenient for departing international flights. Dubai International Airport has a flight schedule with the shortest flight radius in the world. Dubai International Airport, with 16 daily flights to more than six destinations, provides carriers like Qatar Airways, Emirates, and Etihad Airways with a faster flight turnaround time and a shorter flight path. This means more opportunities for business travel in the UAE, with shorter trips to popular destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, South Africa, and the US.

All flights to the United States now pass through Lagos. The Americans were not just once represented here by Middle Eastern Air carriers. They used to have Middle Eastern Airlines as their feeder airline to the Middle East.
It’s past time for this to stop. Every Lagosian, no matter how fat or wealthy, should desire American Airlines to fly to Lagos.
Allow the Lagos Central Airport to be used for regular flights to America.
After three years of staging for the Australian rugby team and then the Rugby Championships, Lagos does not have a single direct flight to America. What is the point of this insistence for the City of Lagos to be made a city of free trade?
Lagos does not need city status to be recognised as an international hub for business, especially when there is a gateway to get there.
If there is no city for business, then let the City of Lagos manage an airport, maybe with some kind of franchise arrangement with a foreign airline.
Commercial service is required at every airport in the world. Without commercial flights, it is impossible to expect any business entity to invest in the city of Lagos to build a better airport. An international hub must be served by the airport.
Go back to the 1950s when Lagos was declared a city. The primary road connecting Lagos to the east and south was decided to be a direct access to the city from the west by the founding fathers. That road has not been made better since then.
The Lagos State Government must restore the Lagos-Ogun-Delta highway as quickly as possible so that it can serve both the north and south. Also, the highway cannot support commercial flights because of congestion in Lagos.
First Nigerian Airways served the Lagos Airport in the 1950s. It is what we called the Lagos-Kano-Ibadan route. But then, there was a specific port. Lagos now has two ports. Because Lagos has a deep water port, it has a significant edge over Singapore and Dubai.
As a result of their deep-water ports, Singapore and Dubai have been designated as hubs. But Dubai and Singapore are not making anything of it.
