Dubai International celebrates 58th anniversary

When Dubai opened a tiny terminal building and an 1,800-foot-long compacted sand runway 58 years ago on September 30, 1960, nobody realised that it was the first step in what was to become one of the most inspiring journeys in aviation history.

Today, 58 years and 974,461,017 customers later, DXB is the world’s busiest international airport and an aviation brand loved and respected around the world. Here’s to Dubai’s visionary leadership and decades of collaboration, commitment and service. Here’s to the spirit of Dubai.
