Facilities at Dubai International Airport – For the travellers who need everything in order

There are many kinds of travellers in Dubai, some of them go with the flow and just enjoy the journey, the others need to plan well ahead and know all the details before they set off. This article is for type 2.


Children and Travel

The first place you see in Dubai is obviously the airport and from there, you'd probably head off to a Palm Jumeirah hotel in Dubai the likes of DUKES DUBAI. If you are travelling with children, do not worry, the Dubai International Airport has special care rooms for the babies and mothers, to take care of the infant's needs in total privacy. If you cannot spot the care rooms on your own, any one of the help zone desks at the airport will point you in the right direction.


Play Area

If you are travelling with older children who get restless after hours of sitting inside an aircraft, the Dubai International Airport has a beautiful surprise in store for you. When you reach Concourse B at the airport, you'd find yourself at the latest family facility which has its own kids play area and changing rooms for babies.


Business Lounges

If you have a quick business meeting you need to handle as soon as you land in Dubai, there are many meeting rooms and business lounges in the airport itself. From the basic secretarial services to internet and faxing facilities, these meeting rooms have it all. The business centre and rooms can be found in Terminal 1, right near the arrival area.


Medical Emergencies

On the unfortunate instance that you fall ill during flight or when you at the airport, don't you worry. The Dubai International Airport has a 24/7 emergency service that will assist you with any medical need that might arise. There are clinics on both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.


Prayer Areas

For the Muslim travellers who want to keep up with their daily prayers, the Dubai International Airport has prayer rooms plus rooms with water where you can take your ablutions too. These rooms can be found in many parts of the airport and in the car park too.



For those who want a quick puff before they venture out onto the streets of Dubai, the airport has good smoking lounges that have been ventilated well. These smoking lounges can be found in Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. Smoking outside of these lounges when in the airport is not allowed and is a punishable offence.


Financial Aid

Money exchange centres, banks and post offices can be found in parts of the Dubai International Airport, but try not to exchange the money inside as the rates can be higher inside the airport in comparison to the exchange rates outside. Local and international bank branches can be found at the airport, and money can be exchanged at these banks too. Most of these facilities are open 24/7 for the ease of travellers who come to Dubai.
