Dubai’s premier carrier, Emirates Airline has now introduced self-service check-in kiosks at 3 metro stations namely Mall of the Emirates, Burj Khalifa / Dubai Mall and Financial Centre on the Red line thus enabling passengers to access their boarding pass and travel directly to Emirates Terminal 3 on the metro at Terminal 3 station.
The Emirates Airline customers now need not wait for hours for check-in, selecting their seats and getting their boarding pass printed as they only need the reservation code or the ticket number, or their Emirates’ Skywards membership number, to access the service.
According to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) regulations, passengers are required to manage their own luggage on the metro, upon arrival at the airport and those carrying only hand-luggage can proceed directly to immigration, while passengers with baggage can check-in their luggage at dedicated baggage drop counters.
Mohammed H Mattar, Divisional Senior Vice President, Airport Services, Emirates Airline said, “Emirates Airline is always looking at ways to add value and enhance the travel experience of our customers. Self-service check-in kiosks at some of Dubai's metro stations are an innovation that will allow the airline customers the convenience to access their boarding pass before they get to the airport.”
