Dubai International - Concourse B


Dubai - UAE, Middle East


Concourse “B” is part of the overall Dubai International Airport Expansion. This newest addition is a technologically advanced, steel clad tapering structure that preserves harmony and continuity and yet possesses its own distinctive character.

This new approach is conceived to present a more transparent face to the traveller manifested in the rhythm of its large, arched expanses of glazing along its entire length of 925 m.

Concourse “B” will be capable of handling the largest code E aircraft, and the new generation of passenger aircraft, notably the Airbus A380.
