    The wifi at the Dubai Airport is the fastest in the world. Just connect to “DXB Free WIFI’ or ‘DWC Free WIFI’ networks to get access. It is generally unlimited, but if the traffic is too high, limited access is given to the passengers. In that case, they can buy an unlimited daily pass at around 8 dollars.
  8. A plethora of Entertainment Facilities
    Apart from the aforementioned Zen Gardens, the airport provides n number of entertainment facilities. Take a free shower to relax, go for a massage or sauna to the steam rooms, watch the cinemas, or just hit the gym if you love dropping a sweat. If you are into swimming, a swimming pool would also allure you. If nothing works, go for some shopping options.
  9. Features smart gates
    The DXB airport also has smart gates to manage heavy passenger traffic. This eases the most challenging task of the airport to a great extent. If the airlines arrive and depart fluently and timely, it’s not an issue, but if there is any delay or cancellations, traffic may become unmanageable. This crisis can be handled well with the help of smart gates. The residents of the UAE can enter the smart gates using their Emirates ID, hence, avoiding long queues.
