DXB encourages families to go to the airport late… the night before to avoid early morning wake-up

Dubai, UAE - March 28, 2019; DXB, the game-changing airport, has partnered with Dubai International Hotel to make travelling with children a whole lot easier and more exciting with in-airport overnight stays that allow families to wake up minutes from their departing flights.

Starting at just AED 350, the new Wake Up at the Gate package means families don’t need to get to the airport early, but rather late… the night before. Perfect for those early morning flights, the special package allows a family of four to check in at Terminal 3 for their flight the night before, get through security and head into departures starting their holiday in completely stress-free way. Once checked-in to the hotel, the airport becomes a playground to explore, play and eat. Then, settle in for a good night’s* sleep before the whole family wakes up fresh and ready to travel just minutes from the aircraft. It is the ultimate start to a holiday and affordable enough to be considered more than just a luxury.

“Ask any parent about travelling with children and they will say leaving plenty of time is essential,” explains Matthew Horobin, Director of Brand at Dubai Airports. “Ask any child and they will say going for a swim or a bounce on a giant trampoline, having dinner at a restaurant and an overnight stay at a hotel feels like the holiday has already started. It’s a great way to take stress out and add the fun and excitement of travel back in.”

The Wake Up at the Gate package costs from AED 350 for a family of four** sharing a room for up to 12hrs in the Dubai International Hotel, Terminal 3. The price includes premium Ahlan meet & greet, access to the hotel’s facilities including pool and gym, a complimentary fruit basket, tea & coffee facilities and quick check-out. The hotel will even give customers a wake-up call and escort them directly to their gate in plenty of time for the flight, with a bag of healthy snacks for each child.
