Dubai-based Emirates is expecting one of its highest passenger traffic periods for 2017 this upcoming weekend, which will start from Thursday, December 14, as travellers head home or abroad for the holiday season.

More than 420,000 travellers will be passing through Emirates Terminal 3 during the weekend period, according to the airline's latest booking figures. The busiest day for the airline is expected to be on Friday, December 15.

With road works and major infrastructure enhancements happening around the main airport highways and roads, Emirates has urged customers to factor in extra time to their journeys to avoid potential delays. The airline has also reminded customers to arrive at the airport at least three hours before their flight departures.

Passengers can physically check in at the airport as early as six hours before departing on their flight. They are requested to check in no later than two hours prior to departure, regardless of class of travel. Customers who check in less than 60 minutes prior to their scheduled flight departure will not be accepted for travel. Customers can also check in online on both their desktops and mobile devices from 48 hours to 90 minutes before flight departure.
