Dubai Airport Terminal 3 to open in May

 

The extension area of Dubai International Airport (DIA) was on Wednesday visited by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The expansion aims to meet the demand of growing airport traffic and will accommodate 43 million passengers a year. Touring the facilities, dedicated for the use of Emirates airline, including the new Terminal 3 and Passengers’ Concourse 2, Sheikh Mohammed called the additions “a source of pride”.

Khalifa Al Zafeen, CEO of Dubai World Central, gave a presentation on the two buildings that occupy more than one million square metres at a total cost of $4 billion (Dh14.6bn) to cater to 43 million passengers a year. Sheikh Mohammed also visited a three-storey vehicle parking structure that can accommodate up to 2,000 cars. At a meeting with young nationals involved in the project, Sheikh Mohammed praised them for the diligent efforts they put in over the past five years to complete the vital project. He termed the project as “gigantic”, as it forms part of Dubai’s development strategy for 2015. The two facilities will be officially opened in May.

DIA currently has capacity for 22 million passengers but by the time the expansion projects are completed it will be able to handle 60 million passengers a year. Forecasts project the airport to be handling 70 million passengers per year by 2016 and 100 million per year by 2025, which would make it the world’s largest airport. Located beneath the taxiway area and directly linked with Concourse 2, Terminal 3 incorporates an innovative design that promotes simplified, easy passenger flow and decreases walking distances.

Terminal 3’s features include a multi-level underground parking structure, first-class lounges and dedicated counters, restaurants and 180 check-in counters. Total built-up area is 5,000 square metres. The departures and arrivals halls within the terminal will be located 10 metres below the taxiways. Directly connected to Terminal 3, Concourse 2 is dedicated exclusively to Emirates airline. The building will include a multi-level structure for departures and arrivals incorporating 27 contact gates and 59 passenger-loading bridges.
