Emirates has introduced Home Check-in, a new service which allows customers to check in for their flights from anywhere.
The service is available in Dubai for customers travelling across all classes on Emirates flights.
The new service enables Emirates passengers to complete the security check and check-in from the comfort of their home, hotel or office, and have their luggage transported to the airport prior to their flight.
An Emirates check-in agent will arrive at the preferred location to weigh and tag the bags as well as check-in the customers and issue boarding passes.
The new Home Check-in offering complements other luggage handling services is already available for Emirates flights in Dubai, and customers can pay for a concierge service to handle their luggage at the airport, enjoy preferred rates for pre-paid excess baggage, and bag wraps to protect their luggage.
Customers can then make their own way to the airport and head directly to immigration, bypassing the check-in desks at the airport.
The service can be booked online up to 12 hours before flight departure time.
Emirates has been running trials for its Home Check-in service since October to ensure that the customer experience and security checks are faultless.
