The Dubai International Airport was built in 1959 by order of the late ruler, Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, and was the first airport to be built in the UAE. At that time, the airport only contained one runway, which length was 1.8 km (1.12 miles). The airport is 4 km (2.5 miles) south-east of the city center and is positioned at latitude 25° 25 N, longitude 55° 36 E.

DUBAI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT is considered as the Middle East’s premier and busiest airport. In 2003, a total of 18 million passengers passed through the airport registering a 13% growth over 2002. The ACI traffic statistics have ranked Dubai International Airport as one of the fastest growing airport in the world.

Dubai International Airport has two terminals through which passengers can depart Dubai, depending on the destination they are travelling to. It also has a VIP departing service known as Al Majlis.

Transportation from the airport is possible by taxi, bus, car rental, and limousine. The taxi service is provided by the government-run Dubai Transport airport taxi service, where each cab is meter-run. Airport taxis are meter cabs with a pick-up charge of Dhs. 20 ($ 5.50) and the final fare will be calculated according to the recorded distance travelled.
