Airline expects increased waiting time at check-in counters due to Covid-19
Dubai’s flagship carrier Emirates is expecting a high number of passenger departures from the city, advising passengers to arrive at the airport early in order to complete formalities smoothly.
“Due to Covid19 travel requirement checks and safety procedures, we expect an increased waiting time at checkin counters. Customers starting their journey in Dubai are requested to arrive early at the airport,” Emirates said in a statement on its website on Thursday.
On Tuesday, Etihad Airways and Abu Dhabi International Airport also announced that they are expecting a large volume of passenger traffic this week during the half-term school break.
Emirates said checkin counters would open 24 hours before the flight from Dubai, and passengers could check in for their flights and drop off luggage 24 hours before departure.
For passengers travelling to the US, checkin counters would open 12 hours before the flight.
Travellers have been advised to check updates on the UAE airline’s website regularly for a hassle-free travel experience.
