Four kilometers from Dubai city, Dubai International Airport is one of the Middle East’s growing air traffic hubs. A few clues in case your travels take you there...
Dubai International Airport has three terminals, two of them in the same building. Getting from Terminal 1, where Turkish Airlines is located, to Terminal 3 takes about 30 minutes, so connecting passengers should take note. Terminal 2 is accessible only by apron bus.
Wireless internet is available in all terminals. You can use the credit card-operated telephones in the departure area.
Peak hours at Dubai International Airport are between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. It’s a good idea to get there early if your flight time falls during this interval.
Both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2 have one health center each, and Terminal 3 has two. Passengers are treated free of charge at these centers.
There are two lounges in Terminal 1, where Turkish Airlines is located. In addition, C/CL and Gold Card holders may also use the Dubai International Airport Business Class lounge. All lounges in this terminal charge an entrance fee.
The Marhaba and Ahlan ‘meet & greet’ services ensure that passengers are met at their arrival gate and are given priority in passport control. For reservations, visit the websites: http://www.merhabaservices.com and http://www.ahlan-dia.com.
In addition to a currency exchange, small mosque and smoking room, the airport also offers a hotel booking service.
