Dubai to reopen Terminal and concourse for anticipated demand

The reopening of facilities will allow the gradual return of over 40 international carriers to return to their home terminal at the airport  

Dubai International will reopen Terminal 1 and Concourse D on June 24, owing to the return of growth to UAE’s tourism and travel sectors.  

The facilities have been closed since Covid-19 restrictions were enforced in the region on March 25, 2020 and, according to the airport, the reopening of Terminal 1 is an important step in preparing to accommodate the anticipated growth in travel demand in the coming weeks and months.

l 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.” 

Dubai Airports is advising passengers to confirm their terminal of departure and arrival with their airline prior to coming to the airport as the transition of airlines back to their home terminals will be completed in several stages, with the plan for all airlines to be relocated by the end of June.  

The combination of Terminal 1 and Concourse D will provide an annual capacity of 18 million passengers on top of the already operating Terminals 2 and 3.
