DUBAI, UAE: A total of 884 flights were cancelled at Dubai International Airport (DXB) over the past two days due to flooding after incessant rains on Tuesday, according to the Dubai Airports Spokesperson.

On Thursday morning, the airport resumed partial operations out of Terminal 1 after the operational disruption caused due to flooding.

The world’s busiest international airport is working hard to mitigate the impact of the adverse weather for normal operations within 24 hours.

“Between Tuesday and Wednesday this week, a total of 884 flights have been cancelled, with 46 diverted from DXB. We are collaborating with strategic partners and local authorities to mitigate the impact of this crisis and expedite the recovery of normal operations within the next 24 hours,” the Spokesperson told Khaleej Times.

Earlier on Tuesday, Dubai Airports urged passengers not to come to Terminal 1 unless absolutely necessary and also before confirming their flight status with airlines as re-booking facilities were not available at the airport.
