Passengers set to fly out from Dubai Airports are being advised to check with their airlines for their flight status before heading out.
In a statement sent to ARN News, Dubai International (DXB) confirmed that operations continued to be hampered by the knock-on effects of waterlogging caused by heavy rainfall.
Passengers are also being advised to "allow additional time to get to the airport".
However, with additional rain expected later this evening, the disruption is expected to continue for the next 24 hours. Customers are advised to check directly with their airlines for more specific flight information and allow additional time to get to the airport (2/2)— Dubai Airports (@DubaiAirports) January 11, 2020
