Dubai International prepares for peak summer season

Dubai International prepares for peak summer season

The annual summer travel peak is here and Dubai International is gearing up to welcome nearly two million passengers over the two weekends of June 30th and July 7th.

The world’s number one hub for international passengers has lined up an exciting array of activities and deals – covering food, relaxation and retail therapy, as part of its now popular Hangout@DXB campaign.

With schools across the UAE closing for the summer break, over 900,000 passengers are anticipated to pass through DXB from June 30th to July 3rd and a similar volume of travellers is forecast on the following weekend from July 7th-10th around the Islamic festival of Eid Al Fitr.

To ensure that the summer rush of travellers flows smoothly through its facilities while they have a great time eating, relaxing and shopping, operator Dubai Airports is launching the Hangout@DXB campaign to encourage departing passengers to get to the airport early.

“Nearly a quarter of a million passengers will be passing through our facility every day during the two weekends.


“While we are very happy with the ongoing growth in traffic, we want to make sure that our customers can make the most of the wide range of food, spa, shopping choices available at DXB, and have a comfortable and memorable start to their vacation.

“As such our campaign is focused on maintaining service quality at the airport and the overall experience of our customers at DXB,” said Anita Mehra, senior vice president of communications and reputation, at Dubai Airports.
