Are there additional security measures for customers flying from Dubai to the USA?

Yes; beginning October 26, 2017, we’ll have extra security measures in place for all USA-bound flights from Dubai International Airport (DXB). These measures comply with Transportation Security Administration (TSA) regulations.

There will be dedicated areas for US check-in and you’ll need to answer security-related questions prior to checking in for your flight. Electronic devices will be subject to enhanced checks at the boarding gate, and security checks will be required before boarding. Our Group Security team will be providing assistance 24 hours a day to help all customers departing on flights to the US.

All passengers will still be able to check in online and drop off checked baggage at the Online Check-In Baggage Drop counters in DXB’s dedicated US check-in area.

Early check-in is only permitted on the day of travel, up to 12 hours before the flight departs, and all travelers must appear in person with all baggage and documents.
