DXB extends limits on inbound flights due to ongoing disruption


Dubai International Airport (DXB) is extending the temporary limit on inbound flights for 48 hours "to speed up recovery".

In a statement on social media, the airport said, "We're endeavouring to do our best to support guests impacted by delays due to recent unprecedented weather conditions".

Travellers have been advised to head to the airport only if they have a confirmed flight and to check with their airline for updates. 

The airport earlier limited the number of arriving flights until 4:00 am on April 19.

"We understand the worry that families of our elderly guests are feeling, as they've had to spend longer than expected at DXB.
Please know that our teams are focused on providing priority welfare to families and elderly guests and are doing all that we can to ease their journey," they added.
