Passengers travelling through Dubai International Airport will have to pay extra charges for extra-size baggage which requires manual handling.
In a statement on Wednesday, dnata confirmed that the new fee is in line with the implementation of a Dubai Airport policy regarding ‘out of gauge’ baggage. However, the new fee does not conform to the standard size and weight at Dubai International Airport.
“Dnata has updated its standard ground handling terms and conditions with carriers, to cover the additional manual handling services for “out of gauge” baggage – a policy that is now being strictly enforced at Dubai International Airport,” according to the dnata statement.
The Dubai-based global air services provider further said that the carriers may decide to ask dnata to collect associated charges directly from their passengers.
“Passengers should check their carrier’s website for further details,” the statement said.
