Middle East Review

This article discusses airport development plans in the Middle East. First noted is the Al Maktoum International Airport (AMIA)/Dubai World Central (DWC), a project in progress whose impressive size is setting the standards for the spectacular nature of airport developments in the region. The article notes other construction plans in progress in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), including one in Amjan that is focusing on the country’s cargo market, as well as a second in Al Ain intended for cargo and long-haul technical stops. The article briefs Middle Eastern developments over the past 12 months, including progress on the Cairo International Airport (CIA) and the opening of the MRO in Egypt, the re-opening of the Mosul in Iraq, the expansion of the Queen Alia Airport in Jordan, the construction of a new terminal at Kuwait International Airport, and plans for five new airports in Saudi Arabia.
