Worried about your child's safety if they're flying solo? Dnata's got the answer to all parents' concerns
Unaccompanied children can experience a smooth and safe passage through the airport with the new dedicated children's lounge at the Dubai International Airport.
Launched by Dubai-based air service provider, dnata, the new facility is open exclusively for young passengers and to enhance their travel experience. A specially trained multilingual crew will be on-site to ensure the safety, comfort, and security of the young guests.
The dnata children's lounge is located at Terminal 1, decorated in vibrant colors and has a variety of games and viewing options available to keep kids entertained while waiting for their flight. The lounge is open 24 hours every day.
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.
