Emirates to have it's own airport base !

Post by pkjet » Tue Mar 27, 2007 6:30 pm

I read in Airline Business,that the 100 gate airport to be completed by 2012 will handle ONLY Emirates flights............wow man.

An airline with it's own dedicated terminal.

Unbelievable this is a PIA creation....... :cry:

In March 2008, BA will have Terminal 5 all to itself.

T4 will then be opened up to other resident LHR airlines, with most of the oneworld partners moving into T3- bring it in close proximity of T5 for the ease of pax transfers.
