Dubai: Dubai International Airport's Terminal 1 and Concourse D resumed operations from June 24 after 15 months of suspension following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, welcoming flynas flight XY201 from the Saudi Arabian capital of Riyadh.

They were closed on March 25, 2020, as part of Dubai's strategy to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Dubai Airport operates three terminals at DXB. Terminal One caters to foreign carriers, T3 is dedicated to Emirates airline and T2 serves flydubai and other budget carriers.
The reopening of the facility will see the phased return of these carriers over the next few days from Terminals 2 and 3.

"This move signals our confidence that the outlook for the rest of the year and beyond is one of optimism, as well as being a clear indication of Dubai's intent to lead the aviation industry in its efforts to enable social and economic recovery of the world," said Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Airports.

"This reopening is a collaborative effort of the many stakeholders involved in the operation of the world's largest international airport and we are delighted to be able to make this important step towards the restoration of full airport operations."

Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, earlier said, 66 airlines will move to Terminal 1 and the resumption of Terminal 1 operations will create 3,500 different jobs.

Linked to Terminal 1 by an airport train, the USD 1.2 billion Concourse D, opened in February 2016. The facility provides world-class service levels for more than 18 million passengers annually.
