Dubai International Airport, one of the busiest and one of the most efficient airports in the world, launched a new look and brand yesterday in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai.
Millions of travelers passing Dubai International will soon get to experience unmatched hospitality, a culture of vibrant imagination, as well as a mesmerizing mosaic of exciting and inspiring experiences, ranging from mouth-watering cuisines, evolving retail choices, to world-class music and art.
After welcoming one billion passengers overall, the airport is transforming toward creating immersive experiences that embody the true spirit of Dubai for its customers, as part of its new brand reveal on Wednesday.

As for the new brand, understanding dining is an integral part of a traveler’s journey through the airport, DXB has introduced a range of delectable options. From the choicest traditional flavors at the S34 Gahwa Mezza Bar, and Americana-style diner options with a local twist at Tranzeet DXB, to live entertainment at the licensed Hard Rock Café, travelers will now be able to delight their taste buds in an environment second to none.
Away from dining, customers will also be able to experience art, music, fashion and local culture, giving DXB a sense of place and a taste of the city it calls home, said a release from Dubai Airports.
