Emirates expects half a million August arrivals at DXB

Airline preparing for its busiest period of the year as the summer begins drawing to a close

Emirates expects half a million August arrivals at DXB

If you were among the masses getting away for a quick break during the Eid holiday, you would more than likely have seen DXB at its busiest.

Well, you’d have thought, but Emirates has just announced that it is planning for some half a million passengers to come flooding through the doors of DXB between now and the start of September. That’s part of the massive summer rush which was reported in Arabian Business as seeing 16 million passengers come through DXB in July and August.

And that doesn’t include people transporting through the airport on their way to their final destination, it’s purely the number of people arriving in Dubai before the end of the month.

The airline has said that it’s doing everything it can to manage the flow of people moving through the airport as it ramps up for one of its busiest times of the year – which is saying something for an airport that’s set to see more than 90 million passengers arriving, departing or travelling through its doors.

So to keep your family happy during your travels, make the most of e-gates using your Emirates ID, luggage home delivery, the Dubai Metro and Dubai Taxi to get home quickly after you arrive back from your travels.
