During one of the busiest travel weekends of the year, more than 1 million people are expected to pass through the busiest international airport as the city marks UAE spring break.



An estimated 260,000 travelers were expected to pass through each day from Friday through Monday. Dubai International Airport expects 89 million passengers this year.

The United States announced a ban on all electronics larger than a standard smartphone on board direct flights out of eight countries across the middle East.
That means your tablet is banned too!





US officials would not specify how long the ban will last, but Dubai-based Emirates told AFP that it had been instructed to enforce it until at least October 14. The United States and Britain have cited intelligence indicating passenger jets could be targeted with explosives planted in such devices.

Government-owned Emirates operates 18 flights daily to the United States out of Dubai. In an attempt to appease its customers, the airline announced it would be offering complimentary packing and shipping services at gates to enable passengers to use their electronic devices after check-in and until boarding.

Too Much Gadget?You Will Pay a Penalty! Bill Proposal Filed by a Congressman
Following the controversial measure seeking to impose taxes on beauty products, a Congressman is planning to push for a bill imposing additional taxes on excessive purchases of electronic gadgets as well as appliances."We need cellphones but we don't need five or six cellphones or 10 cellphones. That's the aim of this bill, it's just to prevent people from buying too much on a certain product and at the same time generating income for the government," the Congressman said.The framework for the proposed tax imposition is still on the works. They are still finalizing issues like what electronic gadgets are needed to be taxed in case of excessive buying, what gadgets are exempted, and how to monitor the buying behavior of a consumer.According to the Congressman, the tax identification number could be presented to a cashier for monitoring of the number of gadgets purchased and this will appear in the tax records of the person.
