1,244 flights to Dubai were canceled due to rain and floods

rawda samy - | UAE

Because of the rain and floods, 1,244 flights to Dubai were ordered to be canceled.

Despite the cancellation of 1,244 flights to Dubai over the course of two days, some airlines have resumed arrivals at Terminal 1.

Dubai Airport canceled 1,244 flights and redirected 40 others.

According to a spokeswoman for Dubai Airports, runway flooding from Tuesday's persistent rains resulted in the cancellation of 1,244 flights and the rerouting of 41 planes at Dubai International (DXB) until Thursday morning.

Floods caused operational disruption, so the airport restarted some of its operations out of Terminal 1 on Thursday morning.

In order to restore regular operations over the next twenty-four hours, the busiest international airport in the world is exerting a great deal of effort to offset the impact of the poor weather.

The spokesman stated, "We are working together with strategic partners and local authorities to lessen the impact of this crisis and speed up the process of returning to normal operations within the next twenty-four hours."

Heavy rain causes disruptions and delays of hundreds of flights at Dubai Airport.

Flights departing from Dubai International Airport (DXB) continue to be subject to delays or cancellations as a result of the UAE's recent weather, which has been extraordinary. Passengers are strongly discouraged from going to Terminal 1 at Dubai Airports until they have received confirmation from their airline regarding the departure of their aircraft. Due to the recent crowding, only customers with confirmed departures can now access Terminal 1. The statement strongly encourages passengers to contact their respective airlines for the latest flight information, as the terminal does not offer rebooking facilities.

However, the unexpected weather that has recently occurred in the United Arab Emirates is still causing delays and disruptions to flights.

Airlines temporarily suspend flights to Dubai Airport.

We have temporarily suspended flights to Dubai Airport for the time being.

In addition to the local carriers Emirates and FlyDubai, a number of other airlines, including EgyptAir, Sri Lankan carriers, and others, were also compelled to temporarily cease their flights until the situation at the flooded runway improved.
