(MENAFN)After growing their commercial relationship earlier this year, Emirates and flydubai could finally use the same terminal at Dubai International Airport, the world's busiest for international travelers, the head of the airport operator said.
Emirates, the Middle East's largest airline uses only Terminal 3 without some of the Qantas flights that will end next year. Budget airline flydubai shares Terminal 2, on the other side of the airport, with other flying companies.
The two airlines are considering developing connections for passengers, in addition to whether it's possible for them to operate out of Terminal 3.
"We need to make a strategic decision about how the traffic distribution will work," Dubai Airports Chief Executive Paul Griffiths clarified to Reuters on Thursday in an interview in Dubai.
"Then we need to move quickly into a design and construction phase to build whatever facilities are necessary for that, or adapt existing facilities around the new business model." He continued.
