Dubai Terminal 1 reopens, welcomes first passengers in 15 months
Dubai International has opened the Terminal 1 and Concourse D for the travellers after a 15-month long hibernation triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic. It welcomed the first passengers who arrived on flynas flight XY201 from Saudi capital Riyadh.
Dubai International today (June 24) opened the doors of Terminal 1 and Concourse D to travellers after being awakened from their 15-month long hibernation triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The facilities were closed on March 25, 2020 following the partial suspension of operations at DXB as part of the measures to control the spread of the virus, said the statement from Dubai International.
The Terminal 1 and Concourse D welcomed the first passengers who arrived on flynas flight XY201 from Saudi capital of Riyadh.
Linked to Terminal 1 by an airport train, the Concourse D had opened in 2016 as the home terminal of DXB's 65 plus international carriers, it stated.
Dubai International said the reopening of the facility will see the phased return of these carriers over the next few days from Terminals 2 and 3, as the hub prepares for an anticipated increase in traffic during the summer holidays and beyond.
The facility can cater to more than 18 million passengers annually, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
