Dubai airport to resume full operations within 24 hours

DUBAI, April 18 — Dubai Airports chief operating officer (COO) Majed Al Joker announced that the Dubai International Airport (DXB) will resume normal operations within 24 hours, signifying a return to its full capacity and regular schedule.

Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 have already begun gradual normalisation, resulting in smoother movement, he said in a statement to the Emirates News Agency (WAM).

Emphasising passenger safety as the top priority, Al Joker highlighted the collaborative efforts among airport teams, partners and airlines to ensure a swift return to normalcy and support affected travellers.

He said over the past days, the airport’s response and emergency teams, various departments and strategic partners, and airlines have worked extensively to coordinate efforts to return to normalcy, while supporting and assisting affected passengers and guests.

He added that the entities that have worked and are still working to restore the situation to what it was include a variety of private and government departments. 

Al Joker also noted the ongoing communication with passengers to address needs such as refreshments, flight rescheduling and rebooking.

“While most airlines are operating, the situation remains dynamic, prompting travellers to contact their respective airlines for up-to-date information.”

Dubai Airports commended the dedicated staff for their tireless work in ensuring guests’ comfort and safety, expressing gratitude for travellers’ understanding during this period.
