7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Dubai Air­ports is boost­ing the num­ber of spe­cialised fa­cil­i­ties to han­dle Air­bus A380 planes to cater for Emi­rates Air­line’s grow­ing fleet of the dou­ble-decker air­craft. It plans to add 10 more A380 gates with air bridges at Dubai In­ter­na­tional Air­port’s Con­course C. That will leave it with a record 47 gates de­signed for the mam­moth air­craft. The project is ex­pected to be com­plete by 2018 at an undisclosed cost and is part of Dubai Air­port’s plans to boost ca­pac­ity at the air­port to 118 mil­lion pas­sen­gers by 2023. Dubai In­ter­na­tional is the world’s third­bus­i­est air­port, and han­dles more in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­ger traf­fic than any other.
