World's Biggest Airport Opens Its Doors In Dubai
Although it's not yet complete, the Al-Maktoum International Airport opened its doors to passengers this weekend. The first plane to land at the new hub , a flight from Budapest, was welcomed with a water cannon salute when it touched down.
The new facility is the country's second airport and is located about 50 miles away from Dubai International Airport, already one of the world's busiest gateways. Last year, 57 million passengers passed through its terminals.
Despite all the fanfare, only a few airlines have signed on to use the new airport so far, although officials are confident that other carriers will soon follow suit.
