National Geographic Ultimate Airport

Reaching millions around the world

Highly successful series returned for a third season

Following outstanding ratings for the show’s first two seasons across territories in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America, Arrow Media and NatGeo were back at Dubai International to film Season 3 of Ultimate Airport Dubai.

The third season of National Geographic International Channel’s number one show took to the air in the fourth quarter of 2015 and featured 10 hour-long episodes that captured the complexity of DXB’s massive operation and the professionalism and commitment of the more than 100,000 staff who work at the airport.

Ultimate Airport Dubai went behind the scenes at the world’s busiest international airport, following staff efforts to keep it safe, secure and on schedule while welcoming over 78 million passengers on more than 400,000 flights.

Season 3 features riveting stories of the numerous challenges staff face during day to day operations – with a host of interesting passengers and surprising situations and unexpected events.

The series told many stories about passengers and operations on the ramp as well as within the terminals, customs, control tower and flight services. One of the highlights of the season was the construction of DXB’s new facility, Concourse D. National Geographic International Channel will broadcast the show in 170 countries and 45 languages.
