With first flight from Riyadh, Dubai airport's Terminal 1 reopens after 15 months

June 24, 2021

DUBAI — Dubai International Airport's Terminal 1 and Concourse D welcomed their first passengers on Thursday morning after 15 months with the arrival of flynas flight XY201 from Riyadh.

Linked to Terminal 1 by an airport train, the $1.2 billion Concourse D, opened in February 2016 as the home terminal of DXB's 65 plus international carriers.

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 provides world-class service levels for more than 18 million passengers annually.

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 COVID-19. — WAM
