When the Dubai International (DXB) North Runway closes for 45 days next month, some flights will be redirected to Dubai World Central (DWC).

The track will be closed from May 9 to June 22 for a “complete repair”.

Operator DXB Dubai Airports said it had provided “advance notice” to all airlines to plan flight reductions and plan schedules accordingly.

According to a press release issued by flydubai on Tuesday, passengers traveling from DWC will enjoy free parking at the airport. Additionally, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will provide free bus service between all DXB and DWC terminals every 30 minutes.

flydubai said it will operate flights to 34 destinations from DWC during the period of the refurbishment project “to disrupt passengers’ travel plans as little as possible”.

Passengers are advised to check their departure and arrival airports before travel to ensure they have the correct information.
