Bad Weather Hampers Flight Operations in the UAE

United Arab Emirates is still experiencing early morning foggy weather conditions which has continued to disrupt flight operations with dozens of flights to and from Dubai delayed or cancelled.

Gulf News reports that as of 8am today, at least 28 incoming flights bound for Dubai International from India, New York, United Kingdom, Oman, Sri Lanka and Kuwait were expected to be delayed.

Flydubai is reported to have cancelled nine outgoing flights as of Monday, January 2. The airline had earlier cancelled 21 trips on New Year’s Eve.

Today also happens to be one of the busiest times to travel back to Dubai, with the biggest volume of travelers returning to the UAE from the holidays expected to show up on January 2.

UAE-based carriers had warned that flight disruptions due to bad weather, which left hundreds of passengers stranded in the last few days in the UAE, were expected to continue today.

The first week of the year is one of the busiest times for airport operations, with Emirates Airlines expecting close to 250,000 passengers to pass through Terminal 3 and Emirates’ Concourses in the first three days of January.
