Dubai Airport urges passengers not to arrive too early

Dubai Airports, the second-busiest airport across the globe, on Saturday urged the passengers departing from Dubai International (DXB) not to come to the airport unless their flight has been confirmed amid floods and recommended arriving at the terminal only three hours before their scheduled departure.

Issuing an alert on microblogging platform X (formerly known as Twitter), Dubai International urged passengers departing from the airport against arriving too early to avoid further overcrowding.

“⚠️IMPORTANT ALERT: For guests departing from @DXB, we advise you to get to your terminal 3 hours before your departure time. Please do NOT arrive too early as this leads to further overcrowding at the airport," the DXB said.

The move aims to support operations recovering from the recent floods in the city. Earlier this week, heavy rains lashed the United Arab Emirates and caused a flood-like situation in the UAE.
