Emirates Airlines is expecting to welcome more than 500,000 people - excluding transit passengers - into Dubai from August 20 until the beginning of September 2019, marking the end of summer holidays and Eid breaks.

Close to 500,000 bags will be processed during this period and extra resources are being deployed to ensure smooth baggage flows, according to an official statement.

Emirates passengers are informed about their designated baggage carousel prior to landing on their personal ice screens, while the airline also offers a home delivery service where luggage is retrieved, cleared at customs and delivered to customers.

Other services include passengers with restricted mobility being able to book wheelchair assistance from the aircraft to the terminal entrance after disembarkation. For families, baby strollers are available on arrivals at every Emirates gate, placed in special cupboards so that customers can quickly identify them. Buggies are also available to customers upon request.

Emirates customers can expect reduced processing times at immigration counters when using smart gates, by using their Emirates ID or passport.
