Massive passenger traffic this weekend at Dubai airport, Emirates warns
People flying out of the UAE have been warned that the airport terminals will be more crowded than usual this weekend, as well as on Tuesday, as thousands of residents are expected to go on vacation during the upcoming spring break and public holiday.
UAE-based carrier Emirates said it is expecting more than 200,000 flyers to take off from Dubai International Airport tomorrow, March 29, just a couple of days before schools mark the official start of this year's spring break, and on April 2, 2019.
In Abu Dhabi, Etihad expects terminals to get crowded starting today, March 28 and over the weekend.
“The spring break commences at the end of this week with schools in the UAE breaking for holidays. This means families will start flying out from Thursday and over the weekend, leading to a particularly busy time at Abu Dhabi Airport.
Two short breaks are coming up very soon for UAE residents. Students are scheduled to go on a two-week spring break starting from March 31, 2019.
