Travelling Back Home From Summer Vacay? These DXB Terminal Allow Only Public Vehicles

Dubai International Airport announced that Terminal 1’s front arrival area will be exclusively available for public transport and authorized vehicles in early June.

To receive guests at the ‘Arrivals’ section, residents and visitors are advised to use car parks or valet services. And the cost of car parks at Dubai Airport starts from Dhs 5 to Dhs 125 and more depending on time and the car park zone.

Take A Metro?

Additionally, the airport is committed to upgrading parking amenities, ensuring passengers have more accessible and budget-friendly parking choices. However, parking fees for these facilities can be steep. Are you seeking a more economical option? Opting for the metro from the airport for your travels within Dubai during this busy summer might be your best bet. Not only will it save you parking expenses, but also valuable time stuck in traffic. Notably, a metro ride to nearby Dubai areas costs less than Dhs10, making it a highly convenient choice.

In summary, Dubai International Airport has significantly enhanced traffic flow and eased congestion by restricting Terminal 1 & 3’s front arrival area to public transport and authorized vehicles only. Travellers are urged to utilise car parks or valet services for ‘Arrivals’ section activities. The airport is also pursuing various initiatives like a new smart tunnel, an enhanced baggage tracking system, and improved parking facilities to streamline passenger flow and minimise wait times.

So make sure you remember all these when you take your flight back home to Dubai.
