"On special occasions, the young travellers are received by 'Salem and Salama', two mascots wearing the uniform of Dubai GDRFA employees," the authority said.

Mascots Salem and Salama have been introduced as part of the initiative and are designed to build friendships and enhance the travel experience for young travellers as they arrive in the city.
