UAE airports, airlines issue weather advisory

Travellers scheduled to fly out on Thursday are being advised to factor in extra time to head to the airport due to the adverse weather forecast.

Dubai Airports have advised passengers to check the latest flight status with their airline and to use the Dubai Metro, where possible.

"We advise guests who are flying out of Dubai International (DXB) and Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) to plan ahead. To avoid potential delays due to road congestion, we recommend guests utilise smart apps for real-time traffic updates and alternative routes and consider using the Dubai Metro to get to DXB Terminals 1 and 3," it said in a media advisory.

Emirates Airline has also urged passengers to double-check the status of flights for any changes due to the weather conditions.

Travellers heading to Zayed International Airport in Abu Dhabi are also advised to allow adequate time in case of traffic delays.

Meanwhile, Etihad has called on customers using the airline's bus service between Abu Dhabi Airport and Dubai to check in early for their transfer to allow additional time to reach the airport.
