Just make sure you follow the transit signs rather than the arrival signs.
You will go through transit security, which includes a boarding pass and passport check and hand baggage screen (just like the procedure when you check in at Glasgow)
Then you will emerge in departures of the same terminal and can buy duty free, get a drink etc.
Don't buy duty free liquids in Glasgow but wait until you get to Dubai as any liquid over 100ml is confiscated - just as it would be in the UK on a transit flight.
Your bags will automatically transfer.
if you require any further information, do a quick search for transit through Dubai, and there'll be many similar threads on this forum to have a look at.
This question is often asked on the Air Forum as well
thanks for the info
It's simple enough and there are staff holding signs pointing you in the right direction. We too had a 3 hour layover en route to Bangkok and it's a good amount of time to transit. If you want to purchase some food or drink in the airport you can use GBP and if they have enough £s in the till they will offer change in £s, if not dirhams. Your luggage should go straight through so after you've loaded it in Glasgow so you won't see it again until you arrive in Bangkok.
Have a wander around the airport to stretch your legs for the next 7 hour flight. There are some decent shops to look in.
Just stay airside and watch the boards. If you have any queries then just ask. I've always found the airport staff most helpful.
We have a 24 hour stopover and wonder if we can check our luggage into the next leg of the flight 24 hours early so that we only take small hand luggage to our hotelEdited: 30 March 2014, 00:24
It depends on the airline.
If the airline is the same for both legs then you may not need to collect your cases at all as they will just go straight through.
So your question can be answered if you give some more information.
Thank you for your suggestion. I will contact Emirates direct to query that
If the stopover is under 24hrs, Emirates will just check your luggage through to your final destination.
I would certainly check with the airline however if your stopover is over 24hrs. If its just over 24hrs, I would guess they could also check it all the way, but check with Emirates for a definite answer
