Ajman airport construction to begin next year

Construction will begin on the UAE’s fourth international airport next year as part of an international “PlaneStation” that will include 30 airports around the world, bringing tourists and business travelers to the booming Middle East.

The newest airport in the Emirates will be build in Ajman at a cost of 12 billion dirhams ($3.2 billion), according to a statement released at a conference on Sunday, attended by Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman.

The facility will be constructed in six stages and take its place as one of 11 airports to be built in the Middle East.

Other airports either planned or already under construction include two each in Egypt and Iran, as well as others in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman, Bahrain and Morocco.
