Dubai Airport is going to be extremely busy this weekend



As of 3pm today, spring break for hundreds of thousands of school and university students officially started and we all know what that means… thousands of families will be flocking to the airport to go on a short holiday.

And, according to Emirates Airline over 89,000 are expected to fly with the airline this weekend.

Of the 89,000, roughly half are expected to fly on Friday, making it the busiest day of the weekend. In an attempt to ensure that all their passengers make their flights, the award-winning airline has issued a number of steps to help them do just that.

Aside from their standard precautions which includes arriving at the airport three hours before your flight and checking in at least 90 minutes prior, the airline has urged passengers to consider the on-going construction on Airport Road which could cause traffic as well as the possibly of delay due to queues.

And, with 34,500 people expected to depart from Emirates Terminal 3 tomorrow we’d most definitely take their advice seriously.

So, to help you make your flight tomorrow, we have devised a list to not only help you hopefully arrive on time but to help you survive the crowd – expect loads of kids, some crying, some running around and some looking just as stressed out as you.

1. Leave for the airport at least four hours before your flight.
If we have learnt one thing about Dubai it’s to never under estimate its traffic…


2. Pack your suitcase the night before.
We know, we know – you pack best when under stress but you don’t have time for that this weekend.


3. Bring headphones and a phone charger.
The weather report for tomorrow looks pretty grim, so there may be some delays. So, the headphones will come in handy to block out the sounds of kids crying and the charger will, well, keep your phone alive.


4. Make sure you have everything before you leave.
Check lists may sound lame but so is missing your flight because you forgot your passport at home.


5. Wear running shoes.
You’ll thank us when you find yourself frantically power walking to make your flight.
