Dubai Airports has announced the phased opening of Concourse A, an A380-exclusive facility at Dubai International's Terminal 3.
“We are opening Concourse A in stages with more gates coming online in each successive phase,” Duabi Airports CEO Paul Griffiths said in a statement. There are now four gates operational. He noted that Concourse A is the first facility in the world dedicated only to A380s.
Dubai International’s annual passenger capacity will increase from 60 million to 75 million when Concourse A is fully operational. Emirates will be the primary user of Concourse A, but Qantas is also expected to use the facility. Emirates operates 30 A380s.
