Dubai International prepares for summer peak
With the annual summer travel peak getting nearer, Dubai International airport is gearing up to welcome nearly two million passengers over the weekends around 30 June and 7 July.
To coincide, the world’s leading 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 30 June to 3 July and a similar volume of travellers is forecast on the following weekend from 7-10 July 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.
Anita Mehra, senior vice president of communications and reputation, at Dubai Airports, said: “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.”
