DUBAI // A major upgrade of Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 1 will begin in the next three months.
The overhaul will improve service, increase capacity and slash the time it takes to reach the departure gates, Dubai Airports company said yesterday. The terminal is the departure and arrival point for all major airlines besides Emirates Airline, which has a dedicated facility in Terminal 3.
Paul Griffiths, chief executive of Dubai Airports, said the upgrade will increase capacity and “together with the construction of Concourse D, will offer our passengers a more inviting and comfortable environment in line with the newer facilities across the terminals at Dubai International Airport”.
