Passengers are urged only to come to the airport if their flight is confirmed…

Dubai International Airport (DXB) is limiting the number of flight arrivals for the next two days, as it looks to speed up recovery of operations. In a post to X, formerly Twitter, the airport said that the number of flights arriving at DXB would be limited for 48 hours from 12pm on Friday April 19.

The airport further added that they’re “endeavouring to do our best to support guests impacted by delays due to recent unprecedented weather conditions.”

The post followed an earlier update from DXB which urged departing passengers only to come to the airport if their airline has confirmed the flight’s departure. Passengers are asked not to arrive too early, and aim to reach the terminal no more than two hours prior to departure.
