DXB to add 10 more A380 gates
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.
