Dubai Airport released an official announcement for travelers departing and arriving at the airport.

Thousands of employees worked hard to restart all flights at Dubai Airport.

There were thousands of staff at Dubai Airport who put forth a lot of effort to restart all of the planes.

After the roads were cleared of floodwaters, Dubai airports returned to their full capacity.

At both DXB and DWC, thousands of aviation industry employees collaborated to facilitate operations restoration and provide assistance to passengers.

After dealing with the aftermath of the most intense rainfall that the United Arab Emirates has experienced in the past seventy-five years, Dubai Airports is currently running at full capacity and has returned to its normal flight schedules.

At both Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC), thousands of employees from the aviation industry collaborated around the clock to restore operations and provide support to both passengers and employees.

The fact that the airport is operational again is a significant accomplishment, according to Griffiths. "We had to work closely with our airline partners and service providers to rework schedules, boost manpower, and look after all those who had been disrupted."

Dubai Airport announced the operation of 1,400 flights daily.

Dubai Airport will operate 1,400 flights daily, according to reports.

Paul Griffiths, the Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Airports, records approximately 1,400 airplane movements daily at Dubai International Airport (DXB). Since yesterday, the airport has been operating according to its regular flight schedules.

"100 percent clear of water accumulation" is also the condition of the roads that are located within and surrounding the airport.

"Our manpower, logistics, and facilities are operating as usual again," Griffiths stated in his statement.

Dubai Airport announced the cancellation of 2,155 flights and the diversion of other flights.

We canceled the two thousand and fifteen scheduled flights from Dubai Airport and rerouted other flights.

Griffiths stated that the storm and its aftermath resulted in the cancellation of 2,155 flights and the rerouting of 115 planes to other locations.

Dubai Airports made the statement that "recovery will take some time" the day after the storm occurred the previous week, as the extent of the devastation and the aftermath started to emerge.

This led to the rerouting of thirty-one flights to DWC, enabling all passengers at the airport to complete their travel arrangements by the 19th of April.

In addition, 75,000 food packets were delivered across DXB and DWC to assist travelers who were stranded anywhere.

Griffiths noted that some challenges remain, such as managing the backlog of baggage.

"We are closely collaborating with our service partners, yet we recognize that additional work remains." We would like to take this opportunity to thank our guests once more for their patience while we were working through this."

"It has been the most challenging adverse weather event we've had to navigate, and our people and partners worked tirelessly to keep the operation running and help our guests."

The Dubai Airport issued instructions for travelers following the restart of all flights.

Following the reopening of all flights, the Dubai Airport published recommendations for passengers to follow.

Passengers should arrive at their terminal no more than three hours before the scheduled departure time of their flight once normal operations have resumed. This will help to prevent excessive congestion and make operations run more smoothly.
