Time Out Dubai staff
Going on holiday between May and July? Make sure you head to the right airport. Starting from Thursday May 1 and lasting for 80 days, upgrades to Dubai International Airport’s runways will see hundreds of flights re-routed to Dubai World Central. While Emirates will be unaffected, passengers travelling on all other airlines are advised to check their departure airport in advance.
