Ever wondered how Dubai Airport works?
Dubai International Airport is responsible for over 70 million passengers on 350,000 flights a year, 24 hours a day. As the third busiest airport in the world, it is an incredibly complicated system that takes 90,000 staff members in Dubai to keep it running as smooth as possible. With three massive terminals, Dubai’s airports are the country’s (and maybe the world's) most interesting spaces.
If you're curious to see how it all works, then make sure you check out National Geographic’s documentary series: Ultimate Airport Dubai. This ten part, hour-long series takes you behind the scenes of the world's busiest airport and allows you to witness the intense pressure and decision-making that happens on a daily basis.
The show also reveals facts including how Terminal 3 is the largest building on earth by floor space, measuring 359 football pitches.
The Arabic version of the show will debut on the National Geographic Abu Dhabi television channel on May 10, but if you don’t understand Arabic - or just don’t want to wait - check out the first episode below:
