$1.3bn Terminal 3 contract awarded

Dubai's Department of Civil Aviation hands Al-Habtoor Leighton JV contract to build Concourse 3.

Dubai’s Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) said on Saturday it had awarded a 4.9 billion-dirham ($1.33 billion) contract to build a new concourse at Dubai International Airport's new Terminal 3.

The DCA said the contract was awarded to the Al-Habtoor Leighton Group, Murray and Roberts Holdings and Takenaka Corp. joint venture.

The DCA said Concourse 3 would have 20 aircraft stands, 18 of which would accommodate Airbus's A380 superjumbo, as well as a four-star and five star hotel, first- and business-class lounges, and duty free areas.

Work will commence immediately, with completion scheduled for the end of April 2011, it said.

The joint venture also worked on the $4.5 billion Terminal 3, which opened to the public on Oct. 14.
