Flying out of Dubai this weekend? Reach airport early

Dubai carrier Emirates Airline has issued an advisory as the summer rush begins at Dubai airport. The Dubai-based carrier has urged customers to build in extra time to their journeys to avoid potential delays, and arrive at the airport three hours before departure. Emirates is expecting more than 450,000 passengers to travel from, to and through Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport (DXB) throughout the next two weekends on over 1,600 flights. The busiest days for the airline will be the next two weekends, July 2-3 and July 9-10, although high passenger traffic is expected to start today (July 2), and will run through July 12. In addition, close to 100,000 passengers will be arriving in Dubai on Emirates flights to start their summer holidays during that same period. All Emirates and DXB touchpoints are fully prepared to manage the increase in passenger traffic, with measures and protocols in place designed to enhance safety as travellers move through Terminal 3. Travellers are strongly urged to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flight departure to avoid delays. Passengers are encouraged to build in extra time for their journey with expected heavy road traffic coming into Terminal 3.
