The move comes as a major relief for concerned parents and guardians. The new service will also reduce travel stress for children as they will need to pass through various parts of the airport - check-in, passport control, etc.

Steve Allen, Divisional Senior Vice President, UAE Airport Operations, dnata, said: “We are delighted to add more value to our offering and further enhance young passengers’ travel experience by opening our new lounge, which has been specifically designed to meet the needs and taste of children of all ages."

dnata provides its services for unaccompanied minors to over 120 airline partners at the two Dubai airports. More than 70 staff are dedicated to ensuring young passengers reach departure gates on time and receive priority boarding.

In 2018 the dnata team assisted 8,000 unaccompanied minors at Dubai International Airport.

Customers can contact their airlines for further information on the services.
