Dubai International Airport (DXB) is preparing to welcome the influx of travelers over the next two weeks, coinciding with Eid Al Adha and the summer holidays.

More than 3.7 million passengers are expected to pass through DXB from June 12 to 25, with average daily traffic of 264,000.

The busiest day is expected to be June 22, with guest numbers potentially exceeding 287,000.

To ensure a hassle-free trip, Dubai Airports is offering these tips to customers traveling in the coming weeks:

  • Access to the arrivals plazas of Terminals 1 and 3 is reserved for public transport and authorized airport vehicles only.
  • Emirates passengers can take advantage of the airline’s convenient early and automatic check-in facilities, including city check-in options.
  • Flydubai passengers are advised to arrive at least four hours before departure.
  • Customers traveling with other airlines should aim to arrive at DXB no earlier than three hours before their scheduled departure time, using web check-in when available to save time.
  • Familiarize yourself with your airline’s baggage allowance and packing rules. Avoid last-minute surprises by checking in advance.
  • Save time going through security by being prepared. Place metal objects (watch, jewelry, cell phone, coins, belt) in your carry-on baggage and follow the guidelines for carrying liquids, aerosols and gels.
  • Families with children over 12 can speed up the passport control process using Smart Gates.
  • Keep up to date with the latest travel regulations for your destination and make sure all necessary documents are ready.
  • Organize your travel documents in advance and weigh your luggage at home to avoid airport surprises and streamline your trip.
  • Don’t forget to pack spare batteries and external batteries in your carry-on baggage.
  • Farewells must be exchanged at home, as only guests will be allowed inside the terminals during peak periods.
  • Use the Dubai Metro to get to and from the airport, as well as between Terminals 1 and 3, to avoid traffic jams.
