Travellers urged to check-in early to avoid holiday rush


Emirates Airline has issued a travel advisory ahead of the busy holiday period this weekend, starting from Thursday, July 2. 

More than 450,000 people are likely to pass through Emirates Terminal 3 alone over the course of the next two weekends on over 1,600 flights. 

The busiest periods will fall between July 2-3 and July 9-10, with high passenger traffic expected to continue until July 12.

In addition, close to 100,000 passengers will be arriving into Dubai on Emirates flights to start their summer holidays during that same period.

The airline has asked customers to arrive at the airport at least three hours before flight departure to avoid potential delays. They've also been reminded to review latest travel requirements to their booked destination, before heading to the airport.

Additional safety measures and protocols have been put in place to enhance safety as customers move through Terminal 3. Contactless check-in, its biometric path and enhanced digital verification of Covid-19 medical information have been added to ease the travel experience.
