This sector plays a vital role in boosting economic development, enhances the quality of the services provided, and helps in achieving the highest standards in security, safety, and comfort for the customers.
Al Jallaf added that the Transport Authority is working with a number of strategic partners, led by Emirates Airline, to expand and develop new transport routes where the Dubai airport would be its final destination, in order to serve the passengers on Emirates Airline with a number of public transport buses that are fully-equipped with the latest safety and comfort equipment and adheres to all international safety standards.

As soon as the customer arrives at Terminal 3, he will check-in his baggage at a designated area and proceed directly to the immigration offices and security check, all of which will ensure a smooth transition across the airport. Plans are currently being set to integrate the baggage check-in procedures at the new facility in Ajman.
