The busiest time for departures in Terminal 3 is said to be May 31, with over 80,000 passengers travelling abroad that day. From the 31st to the 3rd of June in fact, it is expected there will be 309,000 passengers flocking to Dubai International.

With this in mind, we strongly advise people to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flights, if not four hours. There’s going to be a lot of traffic around the airports and Terminal 3, couple this with road works and we’re going to say you need to give yourself about double the time that the journey would normally take you.

Passengers can check-in for their flight as early as 24 hours beforehand in person, you can do this online too of course from 48 hours to 90 minutes before the plane leaves. Customers who check in less than an hour prior to scheduled departure will not be accepted onto the plane, so play it safe!

If you’re not leaving the emirates for Eid, don’t worry, we’ve put together a list of the best Eid staycation offers in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Eid Mubarak!
