Dubai International Airport has announced that the front arrival area of Terminal 1 will only be available for public transport and authorised vehicles, starting from June 8. This measure was taken to reduce congestion and improve traffic flow. The airport recommended that the residents and visitors use the car parks or valet services when receiving guests at the 'Arrivals' section.
This step comes as part of the airport's ongoing efforts to reduce waiting time, and the airport is working on several initiatives to improve passenger flow and reduce congestion. The airport recently provided a new smart tunnel that uses facial recognition technology to speed up passport control for passengers.
In addition, the airport launched a new baggage tracking system that allows passengers to track their bags in real time through a mobile application. The system provides them with updates on the status of their bags from check-in to airport departure. The airport is also working to improve parking facilities to provide passengers with more convenient and affordable parking options.
The airport introduced a new parking system that allows pre-booking of their parking space via the Internet, which saves time and money. Parking rates can be found on the Dubai Airports website, and users can also use the site to reserve their parking space in advance.
Sheikh Hamdan said that our goal is to facilitate institutions and enable their teams to move quickly and easily to and from Dubai to participate in meetings, conferences and exhibitions held throughout the year.
