It's not much, but it's still something...and if you have a family of five...then it's definitely something!

Airline passengers flying out of Dubai’s airports from June 30 will have to pay a new AED 35 fee.

The fee will go towards 'funding future expansion of the transport hub' and will be added onto your ticket when issued by your carrier. Most transit passengers will also have to pay, the only people who won't pay are: children under two-years-old, cabin crew and pilots.

Want to save AED 35 to go towards the fee? Here's how...
