With the Southern Runway revamp starting at Dubai International Airport, Emirates has been working hard to implement measures to further maximise operational efficiencies at DXB and deliver a seamless experience for its customers departing and transiting through Dubai.
The Southern Runway Closure at Dubai International Airport will be taking place from 16 April to 30 May 2019, declining the available airline seats by 29 per cent.
“The runway is nearing the end of its design life and requires a complete upgrade to accommodate future traffic growth,” stated a statement.
During the 45-day long refurbishment some flights will be moved to the city’s second airport in the south, Dubai World Central, to try to reduce the impact, according to the statement.
Customers travelling during this period are encouraged to arrive to the airport early, and build in enough time to check in, pass through immigration and get to their gates. Customers are reminded to arrive to the airport at least three hours before their flight departures, and passengers can check-in as early as 24 hours ahead of their flights at the airport. Customers can also check-in online from 48 hours to 90 minutes ahead of their departure.
