Emirates anticipates more arrivals in upcoming weeks

The airline ramps up its services for over 500,000 travelers to Dubai

Travel is expected to reach an all-time high in the upcoming weeks for Emirates, as the airline expects yet another busy period with travelers flocking into Dubai after the summer holidays and Eid breaks.

Excluding transit passengers, over 500,000 people are expected to arrive into Dubai until the first weeks of September.

Emirates Airport Services Divisional Senior Vice President Mohammed Mattar said: “With another record breaking period coming up when it comes to passenger arrivals, we want to ensure that Emirates customers coming back to Dubai have the best experience possible. We have positioned extra resources to ensure a speedy arrival journey.”

The airline has included extra initiatives for an easier movement for travelers. Paassengers with restricted mobility, for one, can book wheelchair assistance from the aircraft to the terminal entrance. For families, baby strollers are available on arrivals, placed in special cupboards for faster identification. Buggies are also available to customers upon request. Customers are also granted reduced processing time at immigration counters through the smart gates when they use their Emirates ID or passport. They can ‘clear’ immigration in seconds without the need for a physical passport return stamp.

Emirates passengers will also be informed about their designated baggage carousel prior to landing on their personal ice screens, so they can proceed and collect their bags with ease. They can also opt for Home Delivery service where luggage is retrieved and cleared at customs.

First and Business Class passengers, on the other hand, can quickly access Emirates’ complimentary Chauffer Drive service upon clearing customs.
