Ground transportation to Dubai International Airport

renowned for holding world records that include busiest airport, Dubai International Airport is a massive facility that doubles as a testament to man’s ability to design and build. The ever-growing airport offers three terminals dubbed Terminals 1, 2 and 3. Both Terminals 1 and 3 are inter-connected and home to the same design, with departures located on the upper level and arrivals located on the lower level. Terminal 2 is on the opposite end of the airport property and offers an expansive single-level floor plan that includes a duty-free shopping mall and Arabian-themed art, not to mention shuttles to the other terminals. Ground transportation includes the Dubai Metro’s Red Line and Green Line – the Red Line picks up at Terminals 1 and 3, and the Green Line picks up near Terminal 2’s Airport Free Zone.
