Dubai South is shaping today’s future says Khalifa Al Zaffin

Dubai has begun an exciting new chapter with the introduction of the Dubai Economic Agenda ‘D33’, announced Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. In his declaration, he mentioned that they know what their economic path will be over the next decade, and that the world gives way for those who know what they want. He also stated this signals a bold future for Dubai, focusing on sustainable development and positioning the city as a global leader.

Recently, Sheikh Mohammed approved the designs for new passenger terminals at Al Maktoum International Airport, marking the start of construction on this AED 128 billion mega project. This initiative, according to officials at Dubai South, is set to have a transformative impact on both the city of Dubai and the wider UAE.

Key Developments and Future Prospects

The development is poised to enhance Dubai’s business sector and residential environment. An integrated ecosystem in Dubai South will foster growth and create a conducive environment for residents, businesses, and international investors.

Being the largest single-urban master development focusing on aviation, logistics, and real estate, Dubai South expects a rise in housing demand near the airport, which is designed to eventually accommodate one million people. The Residential District is becoming a prime investment hotspot, equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure to support significant changes, reaffirming Dubai’s role as a player in the global aviation industry for decades to come.

Boosting logistics and aviation

The expansion of Al Maktoum International Airport aligns with the ‘D33’ Economic Agenda’s objective to position Dubai among the top five global logistics hubs. The Logistics District at Dubai South is innovating to enhance operational efficiencies and speed, which is crucial as demand for logistics services grows with projections of handling up to 12 million annual tonnes of cargo.

The completion of Al Maktoum International Airport will herald a new era for Dubai South, transitioning all operations from DXB and becoming a central hub for MRO (maintenance, repair, and overhaul) and aviation services at the Mohammed bin Rashid Aerospace Hub.

Commitment to Growth and Excellence

Dubai South remains dedicated to advancing government initiatives and realising the ambitious vision for the new airport. Their goal is to reinforce Dubai’s stature as the global aviation capital and a dynamic urban centre.

Dubai South is strategically leveraging its resources, infrastructure, and specialised services to support these significant projects, meeting the evolving residential, logistical, and aviation needs as the projects progress towards completion.
