Dubai International’s A380 facility is now an impressive tourist destination in its own right

People on holiday in Dubai know they are set for a stay in splendour and luxury – but not many realise this experience begins before they have even left the airport.

Concourse 3, Dubai International’s new purpose-built A380 facility, is now basically a destination in its own right after it was furnished with new innovataive and desirable food and beverage concepts.

AME Info reports that the building now has 16 restaurants and eateries.

“We believe that we have come up with a portfolio that will not only ensure high standards of quality, value and service, but will also inject excitement into a very special terminal,” said Eugene Barry, senior vice president of commercial operations at Dubai Airports.

He explained that the quality and choice of food and entertainment at a terminal is now an increasingly important factor which formulates overall perceptions of an airport and Dubai would continue to set an example.
