Dubai-based Emirates Airline and low-cost carrier Flydubai are working on a new timeline for the complete migration of Flydubai flights from Dubai International airport’s Terminal 2 to Al-Maktoum International airport.

“The new code-share agreement means they are now working on a plan to gradually achieve that goal,” Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports Company, tells MEED.

Flydubai announced last year that it was aiming to move its hub from Terminal 2 to Al-Maktoum International this month.

Neither Emirates nor Flydubai has confirmed a new target date for the move.

The original plan for Flydubai to move to Al-Maktoum International, spurred the expansion work at the existing terminal, which was originally expected to be completed by end of this year.

The capacity at the existing terminal at Al-Maktoum International is being expanded from 5 million passengers a year to 26 million.
