UAE: Emirates issues alert as peak travel begins tomorrow

With a busy travel period set to start tomorrow, Emirates airline urged passengers to head to the airport up to three hours before their flights and make use of several smart services to complete check-in procedures.

Dubai is expected to see a surge in travellers as the region gets busy with iconic sports events, the UAE National Day long weekend, and the upcoming festive season, the airline said in an advisory issued on Friday.

Among those who are flying into the emirate’s airports are visitors for the myriad of winter events — like those attending the 2022 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix this weekend, travellers headed to Doha for football matches, and those arriving for the Emirates Dubai 7s, which is set to welcome 5,500 athletes from 32 countries.

UAE National Day will also see a high level of outbound travel as UAE residents enjoy the long weekend, and from December 16 onwards, Emirates is expecting the seasonal “super outbound peak” for the festive period.
