DXB Shares Additional Tips For Travellers 

- Emirates passengers have access to the airline’s convenient home, early, and self-check-in services, including city check-in options.

- flydubai passengers are advised to arrive at least four hours before departure.

- Travellers flying with other airlines should plan to arrive at DXB no more than three hours before their scheduled departure time, using online check-in whenever possible to streamline their experience. Utilise the Dubai Metro for transportation to and from the airport, as well as between Terminals 1 and 3, to avoid traffic congestion.

- Access to the arrivals at Terminals 1 and 3 is limited to public transport and authorised airport vehicles exclusively.

- Make sure you're aware of your airline's baggage allowance and packing rules beforehand to avoid surprises. Save time during security screening by preparing in advance, and placing metal items like watches, jewellery, mobile phones, coins, and belts in your carry-on bag. Follow the specific guidelines provided for carrying liquids, aerosols, and gels.

- Families with children aged 12 and above can speed up the passport control process by utilising smart gates.
