Unstable weather conditions may affect flight schedules from Dubai International Airport (DXB), an airline said. In a statement, Flydubai advised passengers to try to arrive at the airport at least four hours before their flight departure.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms have lashed parts of Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Fujairah since late Monday afternoon. The unsettled weather is expected to intensify overnight.

According to an advisory issued by the National Center of Meteorology (NCM), heavy rain is expected to cause flooding, while strong winds will reduce horizontal visibility. The bad weather is expected to persist until early Wednesday morning.

The airline advised passengers to allow more time for their trip to the airport and check the status of their flight on its website.

Emirates Airline said all its flights are running as scheduled on Monday night. Last month, heavy rain caused multiple flight cancellations and delays in Dubai. On March 9, some 13 incoming flights had to be diverted to nearby airports.
