On July 7, Dubai reopened for tourism.
After a global pandemic threw the world into disarray, the aviation industry, in particular, was hit the hardest when DXB and other UAE airports made the decision to close, to curb the spread of COVID-19.
For three months it was repatriation flights only, but now the world’s busiest airport for international travel has reopened and strives once again to welcome travellers from all over the world for transit and for vacations.
