Dubai Airport Terminal 3

The behemoth of a terminal has at last been open after so many years of being built. Not that Dubai Airport wasn’t a long walk to get out of it, I think they made it even bigger. I have no clue how far the walkway is going to be to immigrations, all I know is that in the old terminal my feet ached after that long walk.

With 16.1 million Sq.ft it can handle a lot more planes, and easily handle the Airbus A380 (The Double Decker). I just hope it won’t be as confusing Heathrows’ Terminal 5 when it opened, but I haven’t heard anything bad yet so I’m assuming things are going smoothly. Now all Emirates Airlines flights landing in Dubai will be landing in Terminal 3.

  2. It’s a bit loud for my taste; a classic Dubai sur Seine
    effect.

    It is certainly huge! to answer your question…82 moving walkways, 97 escalators, 8 skytrains, 157 lifts…
    The Terminal is adding flights to the new terminal in phases, I think there is more information on emirates.com

    I beg to differ with you on that! It’s more of a “classic
    Dubai sur Ginza effect”.
    The old, the frail and the infirm are best advised not to
    travel through this airport given the walkathon miles you you will tend to accumulate gasping from the gate to the taxi rank outside the terminal.

  5. wow, looks like a fancy vegas hotel or something
