Transfer at Dubai International Airport(DXB) - Terminal 3

In a few days time I'll be travelling in emirates(EK-226) from san francisco to Dubai and will need to switch to EK-512 in Dubai to reach my desitination New delhi. So i just wanted to know how the procedure of transfer is going to be in DXB terminal 3 after i get down from sfo flight. I am getting a bit tensed when i think about DXB T-3 being world's largest terminal. I don't know wether i would be able to pull through without any problem or not. I would really be grateful if someone could explain me in details.

Its really not that bad.

The thing to note about T3 is that it has concourse A and concourse B.

A was supposedly built for the sole use of the A380's but its being used by 777 ER aircraft too, and sometimes the A380 operates from B.

Wherever you land check your connecting flight's terminal and gate - this is displayed on your TV screen as you land.

If it isnt for any reason there are lots of boards in the terminal.

Just make sure you get to the correct concourse and gate.

A and B are connected using a special dedicated train - this takes around 2 minutes most.

You will go through security - I've found the lines are less busy the past few months.

Your luggage should be checked through so no need to collect it.

It is a busy airport 24/7 365 days a year but its manageable and you should have no problems..

I transit it at least 10 times a year - its really OK!
