Default Dubai Airport, the new terminal 3

Forgive me for being daft, is this the new airport at jebel ali? or is it just a new terminal at the current airport?

The latter.

The former will come latter.

Terminal Three is only a few minutes walk from Terminal One. In case you didn't know, Terminal Two is on the Sharjah side of the airport, near the Free Zone. Don't be surprised if the Jebel Ali Airport never gets completed as they will surely run out of cash if they keep building everywhere.

yeah that;s why I'm asking, but its still basically the same airport,

plus I've been talking to a lad who tells me they may be stopping the Toon flights and there isn;t much call for them, they're never full up.

There used to be - I went to see a Vulcan bomber on display there.

I'd heard the opposite about flights to Newcastle from an Emirates pilot.
