To reduce items that slow down its baggage handling system, the authorities of Dubai Airport, has announced that passengers who check in baggage that are round or bound together would be rejected as of March 8.
According to Ali Angizeh, vice president of terminal operations at Dubai International, baggage that are round or bound, cause a lot of baggage jam as it does not lie flat.
“Bags that are round or do not have a flat surface of any kind are by far the largest cause of baggage jams.
“These jams can shut down sections of our system, delay the delivery of baggage to the aircraft and inconvenience customers. Passengers who show up at the airport with non-compliant baggage, will be given the option to have it repacked in boxes, for a fee” he said on pictures of the items in bubble wrap.
