  1. Someday soon, Dubai will be called the World’s Tallest Ghost Town

  2. I know people who bought apartments that were being built in close proximity to this new airport…it goes with saying, build it and they will come, except it ain’t true for Dubai any more.

  3. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.straitstimes.com/world/middle-east/dubai-halts-mega-airport-project-as-gulf-economies-stumble) reduced by 73%. (I’m a bot)

    > DUBAI – Work on Dubai's Al Maktoum airport, designed to be one of the world's biggest with an annual capacity of more than 250 million passengers, is on hold as Gulf Arab economies falter, people familiar with the matter said.

    > Tourism has been stagnant since 2017, while Emirates remains based at the original Dubai International hub as it mulls how best to develop its strategy of carrying passengers between all corners of the globe.

    > The newer airport, also known as Dubai World Central, opened in 2013 but serves only 11 passenger airlines, according to its website.
