The modern Al Maktoum International airport (DWC) is the second airport of Dubai, located 52km southwest of the city centre. The airport is a major hub for smaller airlines and serves as a relief valve to Dubai International Airport (DXB). The fastest and most common method of transportation from the airport to downtown Dubai is by taking a Dubai Al Maktoum airport taxi. Alternatively, travellers can use F55 bus from the airport heading to Ibn Battuta Metro Station, in order to take a green line connection to Dubai Mall (city centre). Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Dubai at the same price as a regular taxi. Click here to see the cost.
