Dubai: Emirates airline and flydubai are facing a reduction in services next summer due to runway repairs at Dubai International Airport.
A spokesperson for Dubai Airport said airlines were informed earlier this year that capacity would be reduced by 28 per cent during the 80-day repair period.
Further details on the reduction of services have emerged in a letter sent by Dubai Airports CEO Paul Griffiths to airlines in April. The letter is available on aviation website www.acl-uk.org.
Airlines will be required to reduce their operations to Dubai Airport due to significant capacity reduction resulting from single runway operations, the letter reads.
A Dubai Airports spokesperson said he would not comment on the authenticity of the document. More info
