Malaysia Airlines To Operate Temporarily At Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC)

Subang, 4 February 2014: Malaysia Airlines will operate temporarily at Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) from 1 May to 21 July 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.

Passengers are advised to plan and arrange their travel to and from Dubai 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.

However, from 1 May till 21 July 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.
