A power outage left Dubai International airport’s Terminal 3 without power for a short amount of time on Monday morning, Dubai Airports said.

“Dubai Airports can confirm that there was a power outage at Dubai’ International’s Terminal 3 at 11:04 am due to a technical issue,” a Dubai Airports spokesperson said. “Power was restored within 30 minutes of the outage with minimal impact on operations."

Passengers quoted by local media reported that temperatures rose quickly in the terminal.

“The air conditioning is not working and it’s so, so hot,” a Canadian passenger was quoted as saying by the National shortly after arriving at 11:30 am.

Earlier in July, Dubai Airports announced that an estimated 16 million passengers are expected to travel through DXB over the peak months of July and August.

The airport handles approximately 90 million passengers each year, making it one of the world’s busiest travel hubs.
