The operator of Dubai's state airport yesterday said that it will reopen Terminal-1 at Dubai International Airport on June 24, 2021 after a 15 month closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.

More than 40 international airlines will now gradually shift operations to the reopened terminal, which is the airport's main facility for foreign airlines from Terminals 2 and 3.

Terminal 1, where the airport's Concourse D is found, has an annual passenger capacity of 18 million passengers. An important international transit hub, the airport is capable of handling 100 million passengers a year.

Dubai's government said on Saturday it was lifting restrictions on people living in Nigeria or South Africa within the past 14 days, and direct flights from there would resume on Wednesday.

International flights from India are also set to resume and Indians holding UAE resident visas can enter as long as they receive two doses of UAE approved coronavirus vaccines.

Dubai's media office said those arriving from India would need to be quarantined in a designated facility until they receive their test results, which can be expected within a day.
