A water leak reportedly closed part of Dubai International Airport's Concourse A, which is part of the Emirates Terminal 3, on Thursday.

The leakage occurred in the early hours of Thursday morning, and the airport operator, Dubai Airports, apologised for any inconvenience to passengers.

A Dubai Airports spokesperson was quoted by Emirates 24/7 as saying: “Dubai Airports confirms a section of Concourse A was cordoned off following water leakage that occurred in the facility in the early hours on Thursday.

“Additional staff have been deployed across the facility to minimise inconvenience to customers, while engineering and customer service staff are on site to clean the affected areas and return the facility to normal operations.

“Dubai Airports apologises for any inconvenience caused to its customers.”

With 10,608 A380 scheduled flights to 26 destinations in 2013, Concourse A helped Dubai International enhance its status as the world’s largest hub for Airbus A380 operations in its first full year of operations.

Opened on January 2 2013, Concourse A handled 14,596,893 passengers and handled more than 22-million bags in its first full year of operations.
