The construction of Dubai International Airport’s concourse three (C3), part of the Terminal 3 complex, is on track and will be opened by the end of 2012.

The concourse being constructed, at a cost of Dh12.85bn ($3.5bn), will be the world’s first Airbus A380-dedicated facility of its size.

The new facility – 90m wide and 645m long – will be exclusively used by Emirates airline.

Once complete, the airport will be able to increase its total capacity from the current 60 million passengers to 75 million passengers per annum.

C3, with a total built-up area of 528,000m², will include 20 aircraft contact gates, 18 of which will be dedicated to A380, and six gates for remote stands.

It will be a complete airside structure that will connect to the two major public levels of concourse two and Terminal 3 with an automated people mover (APM).

The C3, including the APM stations, will be built partially underground, and its lower and upper levels will be connected by means of a special vertical transportation system (sky trains).

The first and business-class levels of C3 will be split up and located one above the other, below the hotel level.

Construction began in early 2008.
