Dubai Airport’s latest terminal will be unveiled by the end of the year, and its purpose is to house Emirates’ growing fleet of Airbus A380 jets with their massive passenger capacities, and the many specialist problems they pose to airport operations.
Emirates will eventually have 90 of the A380 aircraft in its fleet, and this new terminal at Dubai will be capable of handling 20 at any one time, each docked to jet bridges.
Inside the 11-storey terminal, there will be first class and business lounges, large departure lounges, and an automated people mover train linking to Terminal 3.
Once open, the new terminal will bring Dubai Airport’s capacity to 75 million passengers per year.
