Dubai International Airport handled 78 million passengers in 2015. The airport is accessible by taxi, hotel shuttle service, bus, and metro.

Metro

The airport is accessible by two lines on the Dubai Metro System. The Red Line provides transportation from the city center, and major locations in the city, directly to the airport. The line runs through the airport, with stops in Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. The second line is the Green Line, which runs to a stop that is in close proximity to the airport. The Green Line provides transportation to the Dubai Airport Free Zone. Passengers can connect to Terminal 2 from this station.

There are many hotels in Dubai that offer shuttle services to and from the airport. However these services are usually for a cost. We recommend inquiring about these services when making your hotel reservation. Some hotels that are located in close proximity to the airport might offer this shuttle service for free.

Airport Information

Dubai International Airport is the busiest airport in the Middle East and the 3rd busiest airport in the world, according to international passenger traffic. This modern airport has a structure that resembles a shopping center, featuring 3 terminal buildings, a parking lot, an area used for rental cars, and even a hotel. Terminal 1 acts as the main terminal and is used by many airlines, so a significant number of international passengers pass through Terminal 1. Terminal 2 is more for domestic flights. Terminal 3 is dedicated to Emirates and is the most luxurious of the three terminals. Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 are connected. These two terminals feature an elaborate design and offer many services such as lounges, restaurants, cafes, bars, stores, and children’s play areas. Terminal 2 offers less in terms of services and amenities and therefore is an area that most tourists never visit. Especially because you have to use the airport shuttle bus to get to Terminal 2 from Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. The terminal halls feature over 80 restaurants, fast food chains, and cafes offering delicious examples of international cuisine.

Cafe Nero, Starbucks, Costa Coffee, KFC, Mc Donalds, Burger King, Paul, and Papa Johns are a few of chain venues you can find at the airport. There are Dubai Duty Free shops located at most gates in Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. You can find many products at the duty free shops, from electronics to clothing, cosmetics, medicine, gifts, watches, and jewelry.

Passengers can also take advantage of the shower stalls and rest areas located in various parts of the airport.

There are also zen gardens that nature lovers can visit. The airport features other services and amenities as well, including ATMs, children’s play areas, currency exchange offices, a gym, health centers, pharmacy, and prayer rooms.
