DUBAI, United Arab Emirates--()--Dubai International (DXB) makes an indelible impression even when viewed from outer space with the addition of Concourse D. Concourse D, which is the last major facility that DXB has space for, has boosted the airport’s annual capacity to 90 million passengers. But the lack of space is not stopping the airport from growing. Dubai Airports has announced plans to increase DXB’s capacity to 118 million passengers per year by 2023 without building any additional infrastructure. The airport operator recently unveiled a new programme, dubbed DXB Plus, as part of its revised masterplan. DXB Plus will boost throughput and enhance service through the design and implementation of customer-centric processes and the application of smart technology. More information is available at
