Dubai Airports announced that His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and the Ruler of Dubai, has endorsed its $7.8bn (Dhs28.8bn) airport and airspace expansion programme which will boost capacity at Dubai International from 60 million to 90 million passengers per year by 2018.
Customs inspectors at Dubai International Airport foiled a bid to smuggle 51 counterfeit bank credit cards valued at AED1 million from two passengers who were coming from an undisclosed Asian country. “Smugglers attempt to use fake credit cards in the local market. This causes harm to the economy and to society,” added Ali Almaghwai.
