Last updated: 23 June 2022, 08:40 Dubai (GMT+4)

Emirates expects a high number of passenger departures from Dubai due to upcoming EID break and school holidays.

Travel requirements change frequently, so be sure to check what documents are required for your destination before you fly, on the travel requirements page.

Customers starting their journey in Dubai are requested to arrive early at the airport. Check-in counters will be open 24 hours before your flight from Dubai, and you can check-in for your flights and drop your luggage 24 hours before the departure of your flight.

For customers travelling to the US, check-in counters will open 12 hours before the flight. You can physically check-in and drop off your bags early.
