Bids for the second phase construction of Dubai South's Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) are expected this month, an official said. 

The airport is being expanded to become to the world's largest. 

Contracts for the expansion will be awarded in November 2015, Suzanne Al Anani, chief executive of Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects.

Currently DWC airport, Dubai’s second, is capable of handling about 7 million passengers.

“The economy and what is going on doesn’t have any impact on the forecast … there’s no down scaling and there’s no up scaling," Al Anani said.

"We have a forecast regardless of the oil prices." 

According to The National, Khalifa Al Zaffin, executive chairman of Dubai Aviation City Corporation, confirmed there would be no changes to the size of the project.

“No scale back. We are driven by growth,” he said. 

Work on the expansion will commence "by next year", Zaffin added. 

Up to $32bn is expected to be invested in the expansion project, it was revealed last year.
