Emirates launches new home check-in service for Dubai passengers
Uhh travel – there’s nothing like it. The feeling of joy that fills you when you know that in just a few short hours, you will be on a beach, watching the sunset or on a mountain, drinking hot cocoa as the snow starts to fall… *wipes tear*, we need a holiday.
But with travel also comes the beloved trip to the airport. And, although Emirates Terminal 3 is amazing – there’s sleeping pods, the world’s fastest free Wi-Fi and the Dubai Duty Free – standing in long lines to check in, is not.
Luckily, we won’t have to do that for much longer because Emirates has just launched its very own home check in service.
The service that allows passengers to check in for their flights from anywhere in Dubai is available for customers across all classes travelling on Emirates flights.
The initiative allows all Emirates passengers to complete their security checks and check-in from the comfort of their home, hotel or office and, have their luggage transported to the airport prior to their flight.
According to an official statement released by the Dubai-based airline, an Emirates check-in agent will arrive at your preferred location, weigh and tag your bags as well as check-in you in to your flight and issue your boarding pass. This means that once you arrive at the airport, you can directly head to immigration, bypassing the check-in desks at the airport.
The time saving service is available for AED350 per trip for up to 7 pieces of luggage. An additional fee of AED35 will be charged for each additional piece of luggage.
You can book the service on emirates.com up and note that you have to do so 12 hours before your flight departure time.
