The ferry Hormuz-12 arrived this week carrying 190 passengers from the Port of Bandar Lengeh in Iran. The vessel later departed on its return voyage with 250 passengers on board.
The newly refurbished Port Rashid Passenger Terminal is equipped with up to date facilities to manage passenger arrivals and departures, including new luggage belts and departure and arrival gates. The terminal also works closely with relevant authorities such as Dubai Police, General Directorate Dubai Residency and Foreign Affairs and Dubai Customs to handle the necessary inspections and other formalities.
Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said: “We have focused on developing Port Rashid as a centre for passengers visiting Dubai. We have also developed the largest cruise terminal in the region and are delighted to welcome regional ferry passengers.”
The resumption of the ferry services will complement DP World’s ongoing plans to expand Port Rashid’s capacity to cater for the growing demand of cruise tourism in the region.
