Dubai Airports capacity to hit 90% of pre-virus levels by autumn

Dubai Airport, the world’s largest by international passenger numbers, expects to recover up to 90 per cent of its pre-pandemic capacity by autumn and will reopen a terminal as demand picks up.

Air travel will get a boost as countries start to remove restrictions, while an upcoming holiday in the Middle East and Expo 2020 Dubai – which begins in October – will also help shore up demand.

The airport plans to reopen a terminal and concourse that were shut in March 2020, and will add 3,500 jobs to meet growing demand.

Tourism is key to the emirate’s economy and Dubai International Airport, the Middle East’s trade and travel hub, relies heavily on connecting passengers around the globe.
