EMIRATES’ DUBAI PASSENGERS can now check-in their bags at home and receive their boarding passes, following trials which started last October. The service, available to all passengers, costs Dhs350 for up to seven pieces of luggage, and Dhs35 per piece thereafter.
Note this is a departures-only service, and passengers will still need to collect their bags at their destination, although Emirates does offer a separate baggage delivery service. An Emirates spokesperson said the service would not only target families and tourists but also business travellers “who don’t want to lug their luggage and may be tied up with meetings before their flight”.
