Dubai International (DXB), the world's busiest international airport, is gearing up for a significant influx of travellers coinciding with the upcoming six-day Eid Al Adha holidays.
According to Dubai Airports, Dubai International (DXB) will welcome an estimated 3.5 million guests through its doors between June 20 and July 3, with the average total daily traffic reaching 252,00. The hub is preparing for a surge in departures, with over a quarter of a million in outbound traffic from June 23 to 25.
Saturday, June 24, is forecast to be exceptionally busy, with a total departure load of nearly 100,000 passengers across DXB. The arrival peak at the end of the Eid Al Adha holiday is anticipated to be even busier, with total daily traffic expected to surpass a record-breaking 305,000 passengers on July 2.
“Dubai International’s recovery has been spectacular this year as evidenced by the impressive traffic growth in the first quarter. As a result, this year's seasonal peaks are expected to be the busiest since 2019, and we are preparing accordingly. Teams across DXB, representing terminal operations, guest experience, control authorities including Dubai Police, airlines, ground handling, baggage operations, car parks, and multiple commercial and service partners, are all working in perfect sync to maintain the high quality of service that international travellers have to come to expect of Dubai,”
said Essa Al Shamsi, Senior Vice President of Terminal Operations at Dubai Airports.
Backed by DXB’s state-of-the-art airport operations control centre, which not only monitors operations inside the terminals and on the airfield in real time but also helps predict and address operational situations before they occur, the teams at the airport are working collaboratively to ensure a smooth airport experience for passengers from kerb to boarding gates despite peak traffic.
