    Moving between terminals

    When connecting between A, B or C Gates, all the gates are within walking distance. The only exceptions are the A Gates. For these you take the airport train.

    If you are connecting to or from F Gates (located across the tarmac), your airline will tell you what to do. Services include free shuttle buses, Marhaba service and public transport.



    Moving between airports

    Your connection may require you to change from Dubai World Central (DWC) to Dubai International (DXB), or vice versa. In this case you need to clear immigration and collect your baggage before taking a taxi or Dubai Metro to Ibn Battuta station where you will be able to take a dedicated bus toDubai World Central (DWC).
