Dubai Airports has announced scheduled maintenance for the southern runway at Dubai International Airport (DXB) from April 16 to May 30, 2019. All cargo and commercial airlines will reduce their operations at DXB during this period, resulting in changes to the flight schedules of FedEx and other cargo and commercial flights.
Due to the temporary closure, FedEx shipments that normally transit through or travel to and from DXB may experience service delays. We have put operational contingency plans in place to minimize the service impact.
Please call your local Customer Service team to obtain the latest transit time information or status of your package.
