Dubai airline puts on extra staff at DXB as it prepares for the busiest few days of the year
Emirates airline has said it expects this week to be its busiest of 2016, as travellers head home or abroad for the holiday season.
A total of 307,000 passengers are expected to pass through Emirates’ Concourses and Terminal 3 between December 14-17, according to the latest booking figures.
The busiest day for the airline is expected on Friday, it added in a statement.
To make the journey as seamless and trouble-free as possible at the airport, Emirates said it is deploying extra staff to assist customers.
Emirates is also reminding customers to arrive at the airport at least 3 hours before flight departure, and plan extra time to get to the airport to avoid heavy traffic during the holiday period.
Customers are also urged to check-in online before departure. This was recently extended to 48 hours to 90 minutes before departure.
