All flights will operate from DXB's Terminal 3 and those travelling are required to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment.

The Dubai Airports has confirmed its readiness to support the resumption of scheduled operations by Emirates airline at Dubai International (DXB).

In a media advisory, Dubai Airports said: "All flights will operate from DXB's Terminal 3 and those travelling are required to wear the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and arrive to the airport four hours before their flight (but not more than four hours prior to flight time) to allow time for additional security measures.

Stating the precautions that passengers need to take, DXB Airport said in a statement: "Travellers without confirmed tickets, passengers without proper PPE, and passengers who arrive to the airport earlier than 4 hours before their scheduled departure time will not be permitted to enter the terminal buildings. Passengers should also be conscious of curfew timings and have tickets available for presentation if and as required by Dubai Police."

Emphasizing on precautionary measures implemented throughout the airport to maintain public safety, DXB stated: "These measures include protective plexiglass at check-in and immigration counters, thermal and temperature screening, social distancing markers and increased levels of sanitisation in compliance with international standards set out by the relevant authorities."

For those travelling selected cafes, restaurants and retail outlets will also be open in the airport's concourse, the statement said.
