Dubai International Airport (DXB) will resume normal operations within 24 hours, signifying a return to its full capacity and regular schedule.

That's according to Majed Al Joker, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Dubai Airports, who told news agency WAM that Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 have already begun gradual normalisation.

Emphasising passenger safety as the top priority, Al Joker highlighted collaborative efforts among airport teams, partners and airlines to ensure a swift return to normalcy.

He said that the airport's response and emergency teams, various departments and strategic partners have worked extensively to coordinate efforts to return to normal on the one hand, and to support and assist affected passengers and guests on the other.

Al Joker added that the entities that have worked and are still working to restore the situation to what it was before, include a variety of private and government departments, as well as entities from inside and outside the airport.

The COO of Dubai Airports also emphasised the ongoing communication with passengers to address needs such as refreshments, flight rescheduling or rebooking.

"While most airlines are operating, the situation remains dynamic, prompting travellers to contact their respective airlines for up-to-date information," he said.
