Dubai Airports to reopen DXB’s Terminal 1, Concourse D on June 24

The facilities were closed on March 25, 2020, following the partial suspension of operations at DXB to control the spread of the pandemic

Dubai Airports has announced that it will reopen Dubai International’s (DXB) Terminal 1 and Concourse D on June 24.

The facilities were closed on March 25, 2020, following the partial suspension of operations at DXB as part of an attempt to control the spread of Covid-19.

Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman of Dubai Airports, said: “Dubai’s aviation sector has been at the forefront of a global campaign to restore vital international air services with the opening of quarantine-free travel corridors between the UAE and multiple countries around the world. This move signals our confidence that the outlook for the rest of the year and beyond is one of optimism, as well as being a clear indication of Dubai’s intent to lead the aviation industry in its efforts to enable social and economic recovery of the world.”

The reopening of the facilities will enable the gradual return of more than 40 international carriers that are currently operating at Terminals 2 and 3 back to their home terminal at DXB.

Dubai Airports – which manages the operation and development of both Dubai International and Dubai World Central airports – has advised passengers to confirm their terminal of departure and arrival with their airline prior to coming to the airport as the transition will be conducted in several stages, with the plan for the relocation to be completed by the end of June. Opened in February 2016, the $1.2bn Concourse D is linked to Terminal 1 by an airport train.

Dubai Airports’ fast-track passport control service, that deploys face and iris-recognition technologies, has reduced the time to complete passport control formalities to between 5-9 seconds.

More than 4.1 million RT PCR tests have been conducted at DXB, while 110,000 airport staff including nearly 80 per cent of Dubai Airports’ employees have received the jab at the airport’s vaccination centre.
