Al Maktoum Airport Reviews

Visited this airport as part of a visit to Dubai and Doha, and as the QR flight times fitted in well with my plans thought it would be good to try, especially as QR had only been flying in there for a few weeks when I went through in Mid-March. The fact that there was only two flights on the board says it all - my 9am to Doha, and a Wizzair one roughly 12 hours later to Sophia. It has a large duty free, yet is heavily over staffed especially when there was only 20 people on our flight and the next lot of passengers is over 10 hours away. Catering is a single McDonalds. Literally in the middle of nowhere and is quite a distance from the city compared to DXB and takes roughly 35-40 mins (early in the morning) in a cab costing around 120 Dihrams. However, it has clearly been designed with the future in mind so will be interesting to go back and see it 10 years from now. Yet for any aviation enthusiast, and non enthusiasts alike it is definitely worth seeing for something designed for traffic levels which astronomically exceed what there presently is, if you don't mind the trek out and limited flight options of course.

The most amazing airport in the world!!! Totally loved no queues, the most friendly staff in the world, showing real interest in your trip and doing everything to make your trip most pleasurable!!! Best Airport ever!!!
- Kamila

Nothing good about this airport. Have to wait 3 hours for baggage! I feel like at third world country. People yelling and quarrel with airport staff who can't give a solid reason on baggage delay. The trip to airport killed me. I hate this airport so much!
- Naqin Heykal

One of the worst experiences of my travelling life - and i work there DNATA - what do they actually do? Check-in on behalf of QR very rude Delivered us to the wrong aircraft on the bus on departure Baggage delivery on arrival useless
- Tony Heron

Rudimentary. A long way from civilisation. Very basic. At least few others use the airport thus no queues. Lounge was under construction thus a temporary one in place. Amex cardholders not welcome. Xxxxxx

Very far outside Dubai (45km from Mall of the Emirates), >30Minutes by Taxi; in the middle of nowhere. People from BurDubai or Deira wouldn't like to depart from this airport (appr. 70km) Quick Check-in and security. Only 5 Airlines on Service here. No Lounges available, only 1 McDonalds, 1 Costa Cofee, no further facilities in terms of a Pub or Bistro. Airport is probably scheduled and built for Dubai EXPO 2020.
- Morti

Basic airport at the moment, speed of check in and security a plus but just too basic. But then again no one seems to want to go here unless forced. Mainly charter flights from Germany and Russia Perhaps things will get better No public transport to speak off
- Tony Heron

Very well organized airport. It is new and modern. Not many flights arrive on this airport which makes it very fast to go through the security and baggage claim. Hygiene is on top level. Public transport is easy to find outside the facility.
