Flights at Dubai International Airport were delayed last Saturday with some cancellations due to flooding.


“Dubai Airports can confirm that due to heavy rainfall and flooding earlier today (Saturday), Dubai International (DXB) is experiencing operational disruptions,” an official said.

“We are working closely with our service partners to get back to full operations as soon as possible. However, flight delays are expected to continue through the day with some cancellations and diversions to Dubai World Central (DWC).”

Passengers were asked to check revised times with airlines and budget sufficient time to reach the airport.

The Roads and Transport Authority urged residents to use the metro in Dubai to avoid traffic snarls as commuters reported being stranded on the roads for hours.

The Dubai Media Office tweeted that “ponds” had formed in some areas due to “unusually heavy rain” of 150mm an hour for more than two hours.
