Dubai Airports’ CEO has said the refurb project at Terminal 2 will be finished in time for the launch of flydubai’s inaugural flight on June 1.
“We are just about to hand over the keys to flydubai,” said Paul Griffiths.
“T2 has undergone somewhat of a transformation over the last few months. Not only have we created additional capacity but the quality has been ugraded and it is now better than it has ever been.”
Griffiths explained the low-cost airline is not exclusive to T2 but a segregated area has been created in order to ease congestion.
“Flydubai will have its own zone and this has been possible due to its route structure and the timing of its flights..
“T2’s refurbishment is expected to help ease congestion when the new airline launched,” he added.
Griffiths was unable to say how many extra passengers would pass through the terminal once flydubai opened for business, but said that figures would be released at the end of June.
Currently the terminal is capable of handling 25 million passengers a year.
