Located in Jebel Ali and spanning 140 square kms, DWC will comprise a fully self-sustained economic zone supporting a multitude of activities around its landmark Al Maktoum International. Upon completion, the airport will be the world’s largest, operating five runways with a capacity to handle 160 million passengers and 12 million tonnes of cargo annually.
The new Hertz location, its 19th in the UAE, will capitalise on the increasing amount of air traffic and business flowing through DWC , which already has one runway operational and recently welcomed its first passenger airlines, Wizz Air and Jazeera Airways in October this year. Gulf Air has also announced launch of operations while Qatar Airways is expected to start services to DWC in early 2014. More info
