Dubai Airports successfully concludes operational testing of T3

Dubai Airports has successfully concluded the operational testing of Dubai International’s Terminal 3, with the third and final operational simulation.

The successful exercise paves the way for the phased transition of operations to the new terminal, beginning 14-Oct-08. The phased opening of the terminal, which is dedicated to Emirates, will be implemented in four phases to ensure that systems and processes are all in place and thoroughly tested.

The aim is to make sure that all aspects of the customer experience at the new terminal are smooth and convenient when it opens to public.

Terminal 3 and its airside facilities at Dubai International will boost the capacity of the airport to an annual figure of over 60 million passengers and provide a enhancement to the quality of customer service.

One more week to go before T3 goes operational, hope it does not repeat the LHR experience.

Badly needed, bring it on. Hope I get to use it in November on my way to Australia. Will be nice after watching it being built for a few years. Arriving at a gate that is attached to the terminal will be a nice touch after being driven around the airport on a bus in the middle of the night.

I look forward to it.

Emirates T3 at Dubai Airport launches phase 2

http://middleeastaviation.aero/news/...+at+Dubai+Airport+launches+phase+2

Quote:
Emirates is ready to launch the next phase from the new terminal on 21-Oct-08 at 14:00 hours. After launching flights to countries on its GCC and Americas network in the first phase from the new terminal, the second phase sees Emirates launching flights to the rest of the Middle East and Africa, increasing operations to 99 flights every day, 37% of all the airline’s flights

T3 launch is smooth and that kills my small doubts after the fiasco at LHR T5.

Good to finally see.

The following flights will move in the following phases to T3.

Phase One - North America, Sao Paulo and GCC countries.
Phase Two - African and other Middle Eastern flights.
Phase Three - European Flights.
Phase Four - South Asia, East Asia and Australia/New Zealand flights.

All Emirates flights are expected to be operational from Terminal 3 by December 2008.

Sounds good T1 is way too small for all them flights at once!

Ive got 2 questions, What will happen in the change over when a European flight lands at the new T3 and say the Australian flights are waiting at T1. There will be alot of people wanting to transit all at once.

What will happen to T1?


Cheers

Nothing, it will house carriers as normal with the exception of EK.

Yes, although the phases will only last a maximum of 3 months. Although It sure will be busy for DXB transits for the next few months with terminal transfers. Baring in mind it will not be no way as bad as transfering at LHR (although some will argue this). IIRC Terminal 1 and 3 are connected easily.

Is there reason to doubt that phase 3 will go ahead on time? I booked a ticket yesterday on EK from LHR to Addis Ababa via DXB on December 24th; my e-ticket shows arrival from london on A380 at T1 then connect to T3 to take A340 to Addis (!!) .. I thought T3 would be fully operational by then, specially that it has more A380 gates than T1.

Does this mean they are sure African flights will be operational from T3 by then, but not the European flights?
