Dubai has found another way to raise cash, as the oil crash continues to take its toll on the broader region’s economy.

Airlines will charge passengers flying through its airports a service fee of 35 Emirati dirham (about $10) from June 30, according to a government statement Wednesday.

Children under two, cabin crew, and transit passengers leaving on the same flight will be exempt.

A resolution for the levy was approved Wednesday by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the crown price of Dubai, according to the Wall Street Journal. More info
