Dubai Airports has announced the line-up of restaurants and coffee shops for Concourse D, the new home of more than 100 airlines that fly to Dubai International. The line-up will see many new brands introduced to Dubai for the first time including a casual dining concept offering passengers dishes from the renowned celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck. Dubai Airports will also introduce the first Camden Food Company outlet in the Middle East, while another first for Dubai International will be Butlers Chocolate Cafe.
YO! Sushi and the CNN News Café will also open in the new airport facility, while other new outlets include Lebanese favourite Sharwarmanji and Taqado Mexican Kitchen, in addition to a second Taste of India outlet but on a larger scale. Concourse D will also include a Giraffe – which will open its second outlet at Dubai International – Starbucks, KFC, Krispy Kreme, McDonald’s, Brioche Doree, The Noodle House, Cavier House & Prunier and Costa Coffee.
“We are passionate about this new offering, and believe it will deliver value and variety. In Concourse D we will offer clear choices for those who want to either relax or refuel, whether travelling alone or in groups, says Eugene Barry, SVP commercial at Dubai Airports. “We have worked with professional food partners to deliver not only great quality food for our customers, but outlets that take the travel-dining experience to a higher level,” adds Barry.
Construction of Concourse D is well underway with the facility’s opening slated for the first quarter of 2015. Once complete, Concourse D will increase Dubai International’s capacity to 90 million. It will be linked to a completely refurbished Terminal 1 by an elevated rail system that will offer transfer times between the two facilities of less than two minutes.
