Dubai Metro Red Line’s newly-opened Route 2020 will soon be connected with Al Maktoum International Airport, a top official from the Roads and Transport Authority confirmed.
Abdul Mohsen Ibrahim Younes, CEO of Rail Agency at RTA, told Gulf News during a recent media tour that Route 2020 will be extended from Expo 2020 Station to Al Maktoum International Airport to ensure a modern metro link between Dubai Airports.
Route 2020 started its commercial run on January 1 with the opening of four stations namely Jebel Ali, The Gardens, Discovery Gardens, and Al Furjan.
Three other stations (Jumeriah Golf Estates, Dubai Investment Park, and Expo2020) will commence operations before the opening of Dubai Expo 2020.
The further extension of Route 2020 is viewed as a vital link between several Dubai communities and Al Maktoum International Airport.
