Dubai Terminal Test Gets Big Turnout
When JetBlue announced earlier this summer that it'd need volunteers to test out its new terminal at JFK, pretty much everyone rolled their eyes. Seriously, who'd want to spend all day at the airport and not even go anywhere? Apparently more than 2,000 people in Dubai, who recently stopped by DXB to check out its new Terminal 3.
The volunteers poured through the new facility, which is scheduled to open sometime this year, checking out the gate areas, immigration and, of course, the bathrooms. Another batch of volunteers will test the terminal later this month and a third trial is scheduled for September. Though only a couple thousand people at a time are transiting the building now, airport officials expect more than 30 million passengers a year once T3 opens.
If you want to get a sneak peak yourself, sign up for the terminal test here.
