Emirates anticipates another peak period for travel just after New Year

Posted 31 December 2018 · Add Comment

Travel to and from Dubai is expected to reach another peak towards the end of this week, as Emirates anticipates yet another busy period of outbound travel after New Year’s celebrations and inbound travel for the Dubai Shopping Festival.

 

More than 180,000 travellers will be making their way to Emirates’ dedicated Terminal 3 facilities from 1-5 January 2019. Roughly the same number of travellers will be arriving into Dubai from 31 December until just after New Year’s Day. The busiest day in the first week of 2019 is expected on Wednesday 2 January.

With road works happening around the main airport highways and roads during this time, Emirates is suggesting customers to build in extra time for 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 24 hours before flight departure, 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.
