Concourse A to create 5,000 jobs in Dubai

According to a report in Zawya, Concourse A (Erstwhile known as Concourse 3), the world’s first purpose-built Airbus A380-dedicated facility of its kind, will help create between 5,000 to 6,000 jobs when it opens within the next three months, officials say.

Paul Griffiths, Chief Executive Officer of the Dubai Airports, told Gulf News that his team is gearing up for the opening of the new concourse. “It’s a whole new facility opening up and we are all excited about it. If things work out as planned, we are planning to open it during the first quarter of 2013.”

Dubai Airports currently employs 3,600 people. “Although we are the operator of the terminal, I assume the three largest stakeholders, Emirates, Dubai Duty Free and Dubai Airports and others will employ between 5,000 to 6,000 people…” he said.
