UAE airports advise travelers not to arrive early

Ahmed Moawad - | UAE

Dubai Airports in the United Arab Emirates announced a number of important tips for passengers traveling through its airport, the most prominent of which is not to arrive early to avoid crowding at Dubai International Airport.

In an official statement published this morning, Dubai Airports advised travelers not to arrive early to avoid more crowding at the airport.

Arrive at the airport 3 hours before departure time

Dubai Airports stated in its statement that passengers departing from Dubai International Airport must arrive at the terminal 3 hours before their departure time.

She added in her statement that there is no need for passengers to arrive earlier than the departure time of their plane to avoid further congestion at the airport.

Suspension of transit flights from Dubai

It is noteworthy that Emirates Airlines had previously announced the suspension of transit flights from Dubai after a rainstorm, and these decisions caused thousands of passengers to be affected by the cancellation of flights this week.

Emirates Airlines announced that it will suspend arrival procedures for all passengers on its network who travel via Dubai, three days after an unprecedented rainstorm swept the country.

Dubai International Airport is facing difficulty in clearing the procedures for overcrowded flights after the UAE witnessed the heaviest rain in 75 years, paralyzing many areas of the country for two days and causing major damage.

Diversion of many flights at Dubai airports

This prompted the airport to divert many flights or decide to postpone or cancel them after the floods flooded the corridors.

The storm swept the UAE on Tuesday after hitting neighboring Oman on Sunday, killing 21 people in Oman and one person in the UAE.

Vehicles, including buses, were abandoned on the streets. Some cars could be seen submerged in water on the roads last Thursday.

Due to the fact that they were unable to receive orders from Dubai, a number of shops and restaurants in Abu Dhabi experienced a lack of items as well.

Traffic is still chaotic

In spite of the fact that the roads have become comparatively cleaner today, Friday, traffic continues to be rather chaotic.

On Friday, the Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Airports, Paul Griffiths, stated to the local radio station Dubai.i that the cancellation of flights this week had an impact on thousands of passengers. This is an important fact to take into consideration.

Dubai International Airport resumes normal operations

It was reported by the Emirates News Agency that Majid Al-Joker, the Chief Operating Officer of Dubai Airports, stated yesterday, Thursday, that Dubai International Airport will resume normal operations within the next twenty-four hours. This statement indicates that the airport will return to operating at full capacity and on a regular schedule.

In addition, the Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Airports, Paul Griffiths, has acknowledged that in light of the weather conditions that have been seen this week, Dubai Airports would want to completely commit its efforts to restoring regular operations to the airport as quickly as feasible.

Providing support to travelers

Providing support to passengers whose flights were delayed as a result of these extraordinary weather circumstances, as well as ensuring that these passengers are cared for and arrive at their destinations as promptly as possible.

In a statement that was filmed and sent to the media, Griffiths continued, "We are witnessing a steady improvement in the movement of departures, and we are working hard and continuously to assist travelers at the airport in order to facilitate their travel procedures and ease their burden."

"Please accept our sincerest apologies, as we are aware that this circumstance is causing a great deal of frustration and distress to a great number of people," he stated.

He went on to say that these exceptional conditions present difficulties that have never been seen before, and that we are working together with all of the necessary authorities and the airport community to find solutions to these problems. We are going to prevail over this circumstance by demonstrating resiliency and drive. All of us are grateful to everyone for their comprehension.
