Dubai will now charge passengers to fly through its airports because of the oil crash



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 infonline/online.js?js=v.1.0.6′ type=’text/javascript’>
