If you’re flying out of DXB’s Terminal 3 this weekend, make sure you get to the airport with plenty of time in hand.
Dubai Airports have announced that they’re expecting some delays near the actual terminal due to roadworks at the junction between Marrakesh Street and Airport Road (see map below).
Roadworks are expected to start on Saturday, September 24 at 2am.
There is a diversion route planned involving a U-turn a short distance up the road, in the opposite direction to Terminal 3, as marked out on the map.
That’s where airport authorities expect delays to occur. There hasn’t been an announcement of how long the roadworks are expected to last.
“This roadwork is a critical element of our DXB Plus programme which is designed to boost our capacity at DXB from 90 million passengers per year to 118 million passengers while improving service,” said Richard Talian, EVP of Strategy & Development at Dubai Airports.
Our advice is to turn up early at DXB to avoid any hassle. In fact, if you're really after some stress-free travel, there's a new spa that's just opened at Terminal 3 that looks fantastic.
