The Dubai Crown Prince has visited the emirate's international airport on day one of its reopening to tourists. Taking to social media on Tuesday, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum posted a video in which he can be seen inspecting all the safety precautions in place at the airport.
Seen wearing a mask and maintaining a safe distance from others, Sheikh Hamdan inspects the various arrival points at the airport, including immigration and Covid-19 testing booths.
"For years, Dubai International has topped the list of airports around the world. Our teams will accept only the top rank and we will retain our top position with extraordinary efforts," he tweeted. "We are optimistic about our ability to retain the exceptional position that Dubai enjoys when it comes to tourism."
The first set of holidaymakers landed at the Dubai International Airport as soon as the clock struck 12 on Tuesday, July 7.
Videos posted by the emirate's General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) on Instagram show socially distanced travel procedures that are in place at the airport. The videos show tourists in masks and gloves adhering to all precautionary measures as they clear immigration and other travel formalities.
