(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Travel is expected to reach an all-time high in the upcoming weeks for Dubai-based Emirates as the carrier expects yet another busy period with travelers arriving into Dubai after the summer holidays and Eid breaks.
Excluding transit passengers, over 500,000 people are expected to arrive into Dubai from August 20 until the beginning of September.
Mohammed Mattar, divisional senior vice-president of Emirates Airport Services, said: "With another record-breaking period coming up when it comes to passenger arrivals, we want to ensure that Emirates customers coming back to Dubai have the best experience possible starting from disembarkation through to every touchpoint and have positioned extra resources to ensure a speedy arrival journey."
Close to 500,000 bags will be processed during this period and extra resources are being deployed to ensure smooth baggage flows. Emirates passengers are informed about their designated baggage carousel prior to landing on their personal screens, so they can proceed and collect their bags with ease. Emirates also offers a home delivery service where luggage is retrieved, cleared at customs and delivered to customers for a hassle-free arrival experience.
