Dubai's Emirates airline has asked all passengers travelling during the New Year to arrive at the airport well in advance.

The airline has joined hands with several authorities in the emirate to make travelling during New Year a hassle-free experience.

"Emirates, and its partners Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Police, Dubai Customs, the General Directorate of Foreign Residency Affairs (GDRFA) and Dubai Airports have announced joint plans to facilitate the passenger and traffic movements to and from Dubai International Airport (Terminal 1 and 3) during the next few weeks of peak travel," the airline said.

"The peak holiday travel period will run from December 19 to January 6, with over 5 million passengers passing through Dubai International Airport," the airline added.

The carrier recommended that passengers travelling during this period check-in online prior to arriving at the airport, and make use of the quick-baggage drop counters at the terminal. Passengers should arrive at the airport at least 3-4 hours prior to their flight.

The RTA will operate the Dubai Metro for extended periods on certain days during the peak travel period and passengers are allowed to carry two pieces of check-in baggage onboard during departure and on arrival.
