Dubai Metro to run all day and night for New Year 2020
Also, trains will operate until 3.30am on select days to meet demand from New Year travellers.
Dubai's Emirates airline, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), Dubai Police, Dubai Customs, the General Directorate of Foreign Residency Affairs (GDRFA) and Dubai Airports on Wednesday 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 peak holiday travel period will run from December 19 to January 6, with over 5 million passengers passing through Dubai International Airport.
It is 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. The extended period is as follows:
December 27-28: Red Line (between Rashidiya and DMCC stations only) from 5am to 3.30am; Green Line (all stations) from 5.30am to 3.30am.
December 31 - January 1: Red Line (between Rashidiya and DMCC stations only) for 24 hours; Green Line (all stations) for 24 hours.
January 2-3: Red Line (between Rashidiya and DMCC stations only) from 5am to 3.30am; Green Line (all stations) 5.30am to 3.30am.
To ease congestion on the roads leading to the airport, Dubai Police will provide detours for traffic. All passengers are requested to adhere to the displayed instructions and guidance to/from the airport.
