Malaysia Airlines will operate temporarily at Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) from May 1 to July 21, 2014.
The temporary shift is due to closure of one of the runways at Dubai International Airport for major resurfacing work.
Passengers booking journeys to Dubai during this period will receive their travel itinerary stating Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport with the three-letter airport code DWC as the arrival airport, instead of Dubai International Airport which goes by its code DXB.
Malaysia Airlines will resume operations at Dubai International Airport after completion of the runway project.
Passengers in Dubai/UAE are advised to plan their travel accordingly during this period to avoid any inconvenience. Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport is located in Jebel Ali, some 37 km south west of Dubai city centre.
Malaysia Airlines, a member of oneworld, flies daily from Kuala Lumpur to Dubai on MH162 which departs at 3.20pm. The return flight from Dubai, MH163, departs for Kuala Lumpur at 7.40pm.
However, from May 1 until July 21, 2014, during this temporary operation period, the flight will operate as MH154, departing Kuala Lumpur at 3.15pm. The return MH155 will depart Dubai at 7.35pm.
