Cargo traffic began operations at Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International Airport in late June, marking the opening of Dubai’s second airport. Operations
at the airport, which planners say will eventually become the world’s largest,
will initially be confined to cargo hauling.

Passenger traffic, for which the airport has an initial capacity of five million people a year, will begin next March.
