DXB to welcome 2.1 million passengers between October 21-30

Some 2.1 million passengers are expected to pass through Dubai International (DXB) airport between October 21 and October 30, with total average daily traffic reaching 215,000 passengers, Dubai Airports has said.

October 30 is expected to be the busiest day of the period, with daily traffic exceeding 259,000 passengers.

Dubai Airports has issued an advisory alerting travellers that DXB will experience the busy 10-day period due to schools breaking for half-term holidays.

Dubai Airports has urged travellers to follow a few simple tips to beat the holiday rush. Passengers are advised to be aware of latest travel regulations for the destination they are travelling to and ensure they carry all necessary documents with the required validity before reaching the airport.

Children over the age of 12 can use Smart Gates to speed up the passport control process. However, if passengers are flying out of Terminal 1, they must arrive at the airport no earlier than three hours before departure.

Those travelling from Terminal 3 can use Emirate’s early and self-service check-in facilities. Meanwhile, weighing luggage at home, checking documents in advance, and being prepared for security checks will offer time efficiency.

Friends and families are also advised to use the airport’s designated car parks or valet service to receive guests as access to the arrivals forecourt in Terminal 3 is limited to public transport and other authorised vehicles, the operator said.

DXB recorded 27,884,888 million passengers in the first half of the year, just 1.2 million shy of the airport’s total annual traffic last year.

The passenger numbers recorded in H1 this year were up 161.9 per cent compared to a year-earlier period.

Dubai Airports, operator of DXB and Dubai World Central (DWC), also announced the appointment of three key roles within the organisation: Omar Binadai as executive vice president – technology and infrastructure, Essa Al Shamsi as senior vice president – terminal operations, and Moataz Roushdy as senior vice president – finance.
