"The introduction of taxiDXB is in direct response to the needs of our customers. The design of DXB’s concourses is very linear, which some customers told us they found hard to manage when they have to reach a gate at the opposite end but lends itself perfectly to a closed-loop buggy service," said Frank McCrorie, SVP Operations at Dubai Airports.
"We have operated similar services in the past, but this is entirely free for our customers and has proved very popular in the test phase."
