Dubai Airports prepares passengers for the summer rush

‘Hang out at DXB’ campaign encourages passengers to arrive at the airport earlier

Dubai, UAE – June 20, 2015– Dubai Airports is this week launching a nationwide campaign, Hang out at DXB, to encourage travellers to arrive earlier to Dubai International and enjoy a full range of airport products and services, while ensuring that all customers depart on time.

Dubai Airports has partnered with Arabian Radio Network (ARN) to launch the Hang out at DXB campaign across DubaiEye 103.8, Dubai 92, Virgin, TAG, City 1016 and Al Arabia. The Virgin Street Team will interact with passengers in Terminals 1 and 3, and giving airport surprises to lucky travellers.

With many schools across the UAE closing in the coming week, the average number of departing passengers is expected to double. On the busiest days, June 25 and 26, more than 75,000 passengers will be departing from the airport. With this in mind, the airport operator is encouraging passengers to complete as many processes as possible before they get to the airport including online check-in and registering for flight updates on the airport’s website www.dubaiairports.ae.

Dubai Airports’ operations teams are also gearing up for the summer peak by adding support staff and May I Help You staff at key touchpoints such as immigration and security during the busiest periods.

“With many passengers leaving Dubai on vacation at this time, we want to ensure that everyone’s experience is as stress-free as possible. By arriving to the airport early, utilising the online check in facility offered by airlines, or using our website to tracktheir flight, we would like to get passengers through their travel formalities and to the departure areas as smoothly as possible, where they can enjoy our wide range of international food & beverage, world-class retail, lounges, and spa services, and be in a great mood to begin their journey,” said Eugene Barry, EVP Commercial Group at Dubai Airports.

To be eligible for prizes that include free Costa coffee for a year, free entries into the Dubai Duty Free Finest Surprise draw, as well as a family weekend away at Atlantis The Palm, passengers must register for flight updates on www.dubaiairports.ae
