Baggage drop off

If your flight is from Dubai International Airport (DXB) Terminal 2, and you have bags to check in, go to the bag drop desks 5 to 10 for Economy Class or counters 2 and 3 if you are flying in business, where they will be tagged and accepted for the flight. Then go straight to security and through to departures. At selected airports, our priority services also provide a speedy path through security.

When to board the flight

Remember, you will still need to pass through security at least 60 minutes before departure. Boarding gates close 20 minutes before flight departure. If you arrive late, you will not be accepted onto the flight and your baggage will be offloaded.
