Dubai Department of Civil Aviation has invited construction firms to prequalify for tenders for the expansion of Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 2.

The terminal is used by flydubai, the state-owned low cost carrier that has grown rapidly since starting operations two years ago.

The work potentially on offer includes a new check-in and departure building, and an extension of the existing terminal building.

The main hall of the new building will be 205m long and 90m wide, and house a check-in area, an immigration section, management offices and a departure facility.

A 70m-long extension to the existing terminal building is also under consideration.

Terminal 2 was refurbished before the June 2009 launch of flydubai. The extension will accommodate the rapid growth of the LCC, which now serves nearly 40 destinations.
