Beginning June, Dubai airport (DXB) will impose airport tax

March 30, 2016

One of the world’s busiest airport for international passengers, Dubai International (DXB), will be introducing a tax on travelers to help finance expansion, as Gulf governments grapple with plummeting revenues.

The nation that does not have impose any income taxes will be charging a AED 35 (approx $9.50) fee applicable all passengers, either connecting, originating or transiting in Dubai, on all flights starting June 30, 2016.

In comparison to the likes of the UK Air Passenger Duty, which can be $200+ for a one-way ticket, this AED 35 is reasonable for the $1.2 billion investment that aims to enhance service and boost capacity for the more than 70 international airlines that will operate from the facility.

Airlines will be tasked with collecting the fee while issuing tickets for flights departing Dubai’s airports after June 30, 2016. This means that you will not have to pay the fee at the airport, but will see it in your ticket prices.

Around 100 airlines fly to more than 240 destinations from the international hub, which is also home to carrier Emirates.
