Building the World's Largest Airport
Economic growth fuels the need for a new airport in Dubai. Dubai International Airport has seen passenger traffic more than double in the past five years, and Emirates Airlines recently announced its record order of $35 billion for 143 planes at this year's Dubai Airshow.

Dubai will soon be home to the world's largest airport: Dubai World Central International Airport. While still under construction, this new airport is estimated to be larger than London's Heathrow and Chicago's O'Hare airports combined and will provide a bridge between Europe and Asia. MME takes a deeper look into Dubai's ambitions to become the world's next aviation hub.

Guler Sabanci in Profile
She is the head of a multi-billion dollar conglomerate, a first lady of finance, and one of the most powerful women in business. CNN's Jennifer Eccleston spends a day in the life of one of Turkey's icons, Guler Sabanci. Sabanci gives MME an insight into working in a man's world and how she led her company to revenues topping $12 billion.
