Dubai International Airport

Dubai Airport is seriously BIG! There are plenty of moving walkways, but even so it can be a long trek from one gate to another, or even between the gate and the main concourses.

Given the size of the place, it comes as no surprise to find that there are electric carts available to convey you around it. There are wheelchairs and porters/assistants too.

Dedicated wheelchair accessible desks are located between Rows A and B in the Departures Hall. There are lounges on the concourse close to Gates 9 and 22 for use by passengers with special needs. And most facilities have been designed to ensure they’re accessible to those with restricted mobility.

Perhaps slightly surprisingly, the Government of Dubai’s Dubai Tourism website has more information about Dubai International’s facilities for the disabled than the airport’s own official site has.
