DXB prepares for busiest period of the year

Dubai International Airport

 

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is gearing up to welcome approximately 90 million passengers during peak season.

Executive vice president, Dubai Airports, Eugene Barry declared: “We are about to face the busiest days of the year here at DXB. It is predicted that June 28 is going to be the first of our busy days during the summer holiday. The weekend of July 5-8 is anticipated to be a busier time as the majority of local schools are breaking up for the summer. We expect to welcome over 1.1 million travellers during those few days.”

Preparations across all departments at the hub are already in full swing, as the entire operations team has been working closely with DXB’s service partners to ensure a seamless journey for customers.

Meanwhile, the airport boasts three distinct baggage systems in its terminals, with the capacity to handle around 25,000 bags in a single hour.

Barry further noted: “All of DXB’s restaurants, duty free shops and other services like foreign exchange and pharmacies are open 24 hours. There are more than 150 food outlets across the airport, and lots of great brand options for gifts and travel essentials.

“The message to anyone travelling over the busy time is simple: plan your journey, arrive to the airport early and make the maximum use of your time here before you depart from DXB this year,” he concluded.
