The Concourse A expansion project at Dubai International Airport (DBX) includes 20 new gates and 528,000 square meters of shops, lounges and hotels, increasing the airport’s passenger-handling capacity to 68 million annually.


One of our first priorities upon winning a new project is—getting Aconex up and running.
