Concourse A: A terminal stands apart
The recently launched Concourse A at Dubai International Airport is the world’s first purpose built facility for A380 aircraft. It increased the airport’s total capacity from 60 million passengers to 75 million per year. The Dh12 billion facility also features the world’s first multilevel boarding to enable first and business class passengers to directly leave the airport waiting lounges and enter the Airbus A380’s twin decks.
