The Dubai Airports has returned to nearly 100 percent operational capacity after the reopening of Concourse A at its Terminal 3 complex following its 20 months of closure due to the ongoing pandemic.
Flight EK659 arrived from Male and was Concourse A’s first flight since the facility was closed 20 months ago on March 25, 2020, as part of measures taken by the UAE authorities to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Over the coming weeks, Concourse A will be reopened in phases, helping DXB to maintain service levels while accommodating the rush of seasonal travellers in December and beyond.
The world’s largest purpose-built facility for the Airbus A380, Concourse A is connected to Terminal 3 by an airport train and has the capacity to serve 18 million passengers annually and the reopening of the facility follows robust growth in passenger traffic at DXB. There has been a consistent surge of demand in the final quarter. (AW)
