Airports in Dubai set aside dedicated offices to greet and assist COP28 visitors
According to Essa Al Shamsi, Senior Vice President of Terminal Operations at Dubai Airports, "We are fully prepared to welcome COP28 guests."
Dubai Airports is getting ready for the anticipated 65,000 attendees of the next COP28 meeting. The event is scheduled for November 30, 2023, through December 12, 2023. In order to make sure that everyone attending has a flawless experience, a number of committees have been formed as part of the preparations, which started in March.
According to Essa Al Shamsi, Senior Vice President of Terminal Operations at Dubai Airports, "we are fully prepared to welcome COP28 guests." "We have worked together with our strategic partners in the airport community to take all of these actions."
Al Shamsi also discussed the creation of a control center to oversee operations at Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC) in order to smooth air traffic flow and related activities before, during, and after the conference in an interview with the Emirates News Agency (WAM).
He clarified that the precautions included having volunteers staff welcome conference attendees at desks where they could field queries, hand out flyers, and offer details about the event. Additionally, in order to expedite flow at all service points and ensure a seamless experience for all of our customers throughout the conference and beyond, the frontline staff at both airports has been reinforced.
He declared that the current seasonal high, which is predicted to be historic, will be handled by Dubai Airports with all necessary readiness. He emphasized the airport's readiness, which is made possible by its cutting-edge infrastructure and effective operations that make use of the newest technology and highly skilled labor to handle such times.
The extraordinary worldwide scope of this event is the reason for these arrangements to receive state guests during the COP28 period.
"As the main gateway to the country, these preparations have come to confirm the complete readiness that reflects Dubai's image as a modern global city," he said.
According to Al Shamsi, Dubai Airports take a comprehensive approach to guarantee the success of all major events by offering top-notch services to greet and support visitors to Dubai, making sure that all teams work nonstop to ensure the smooth operation of every journey, and guaranteeing each traveler an amazing experience.
Al Shamsi pointed out that Dubai Airports regularly evaluate their plans to make sure the airport is prepared to accept travelers, particularly because the conference falls during Dubai International Airport's busiest travel season.
It is noteworthy to remark that Dubai Airports, who recently revised their predictions for passenger traffic this year to reach 86.5 million passengers from the prior estimate of 83.6 million, anticipate a dynamic and outstanding movement during the current year.
