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”.
