Emirates anticipates high passenger traffic for spring holiday

Posted 19 March 2018 · Add Comment

Travel is expected to peak for Emirates, as the airline expects yet another busy period with visitors passing through Terminal 3 ahead of the spring holiday.

The busiest time for departures will be on Friday 23rd March in the morning and continuing all day on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th March. 

With road works and infrastructure enhancements happening around the main airport highways and roads during this time, Emirates urges customers to build in extra time to their journeys to avoid potential delays. Customers are reminded to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flight departures. Passengers can physically check in at the airport as early as six hours before departing on their flight, and are requested to check in no later than 2 hours prior to departure, regardless of class of travel.

Customers who check in less than 60 minutes prior to their scheduled flight departure will not be accepted for travel. Customers can also check in online on both their desktops and mobile devices from 48 hours to 90 minutes before flight departure.

In addition to online check-in services, Emirates also offers convenient car park check-in facilities equipped with 16 check-in counters, located in Zone C. Customers can use these to check in and drop off their luggage. Along with checked in baggage, passengers are strongly advised to adhere to carry-on baggage weight limits, which are 7kg for Economy Class and 14kg for Business and First Class. Staff will be checking the weight of carry-on bags at various touch points before passengers board their flights.
