Dubai international airport


The Dubai Department of Civil Aviation has advertised in a local newspaper, inviting construction companies to prequalify for tenders for the expansion of Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 2.

Dubai international airportThis includes constructing a new check-in hall and departure area, and possibly extending the terminal building. “The project consists of constructing a new building located adjacent to the existing Terminal 2 at Dubai International Airport,” stated the advertisement.

The main hall will be 205m long and 90m wide, and house a check-in area, an immigration section and management offices, and a departure facility. A 70m-long extension to the existing terminal building was also under consideration.

Terminal 2 was refurbished significantly before the June 2009 launch of flydubai. The latest plan is part of an overall strategy to cater for the growth of the locally-based budget carrier, and the booming tourism sector in general.
