DXB’s average daily passenger numbers have risen almost completely back to pre-pandemic levels on the back of strong recovery throughout 2022, making this latest seasonal peak one of the busiest since 2019.

December has been exceptionally busy for DXB due to a combination of factors including the seasonal influx of visitors, the recently concluded Fifa World Cup football event in Doha, and the strength of Dubai’s position as one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

Now Dubai Airports has issued a travel alert for passengers with seminal dos and don’ts.

Nearly two million passengers are expected to pass through Dubai International Airport (DXB) starting today, till around January 3, 2023 – with January 2 expected to be the busiest day.

Dubai International will therefore remain exceptionally busy over the remainder of the holiday season and well into the New Year, prompting Dubai Airports to issue a travel alert.

The average daily traffic over the next eight days is expected to reach 245,000 passengers; the traffic on January 2, 2023 may exceed 257,000 passengers.

The operator is urging passengers to plan their trips to and through the airport, and follow simple travel tips to ensure a smooth airport experience.

Dubai Airports is working closely with airlines, control authorities, and commercial and service partners to ensure a smooth airport experience for arriving and departing passengers.
