Tag: Dubai a380 Concourse
Dubai's airport authorities say a purpose-build concourse for Airbus' A380 aircraft is fully open after weeks of phased-in operations. The aircraft is a double-decker that seats 525 people and is so large some airports have to be adjusted to accommodate it. The 20-gate concourse, which hosted its inaugural flight on Jan. 2, is part of a wider $7.8 billion expansion plan for Dubai's international airport, which seeks to become the world's busiest by 2015.
