Dubai Airports is inviting bids from food and beverage operators and selective retail-service providers for the award of concessions in Concourse D at Dubai International. Construction of Concourse D is well underway with the facility’s opening slated for 2015.
The opportunity is available to food and beverage providers in the categories of popular restaurants, 24-hour casual dining, licenced bars, coffee shops, specialty concepts and fast food. The process also seeks to appoint providers of financial services and selective retail services (non-Duty Free).
Tender documents are available for purchase by interested vendors, at $272 (AED1,000) per tender from the Commercial Unit offices in Dubai International, Terminal 1 departures.
“As was the case with Concourse A, our goal is to create a bespoke and integrated commercial experience that connects with our global customers and exceeds their expectations,” says Eugene Barry, Senior Vice President – Commercial, Dubai Airports.
Customer-facing services have become an increasingly important part of Dubai Airports’ non-aeronautical revenue, as Dubai International’s expanding network of destinations and rapidly growing passenger numbers allow popular brands to target a unique and cosmopolitan audience.
Dubai International connects customers to over 260 destinations on six continents on more than 140 airlines. Passenger numbers are expected to surpass 66 million in 2013 and exceed 78 million in 2015 when Concourse D opens.
Once complete, Concourse D will be home to the more than 100 international airlines that currently use Concourse C and will serve up to 18 million passengers annually. It will be linked to a completely refurbished Terminal 1 by an elevated rail system which will offer transfer times between the two facilities of less than two minutes. The new concourse will shorten queuing times to allow passengers more time to relax and enjoy a wide range of top-flight retail and F&B experiences.
