Emirates has partnered with DUBZ, dnata’s leading baggage technology and logistics company, to provide DUBZ’s renowned home check-in services to its passengers.
Thanks to the partnership with DUBZ, the luxury airline Emirates will take advantage of DUBZ’s innovative services, which most notably is its Home Check-In services, for all passengers so that passengers on Emirates flights departing from Dubai will be able to experience safe travel through home check-in services with staff arriving at their house to disinfect their baggage and efficiently conduct PCR tests for them to ensure maximum comfort for passengers.
Emirates passengers can also choose to book fast-track “marhaba” services to experience the contactless technologies during airport immigration, saving time on ground-based procedures for the comfort of their home. They can book for home check-in services online up to 24 hours before their flight and receive the service between 24 hours and 8 hours before the scheduled departure time.
Customers can easily book their home check-in service on emirates.com. During check-in at home, to ensure safety and convenience before the flight, Transguard staff will check in travelers for their flight, issue boarding passes, weigh and tag their sanitized baggage and ensure they are delivered to the airport and loaded onto the right airrcraft. According to Emirates and DUBZ, all baggage will be disinfected with a long-lasting protective coating that lasts up to 72 hours.
In addition to home check-in, travelers also have the option to book pre-travel COVID-19 testing at their own home. Once registered for the testing service, passengers will have a well-trained medical professional to come to their home to perform the swab test before the time of the Transguard staff come to help them with home check-in process.
The PCR test results will be shared digitally with passengers. All passengers who test negative for COVID-19 will receive a medical certificate within 24 to 48 hours to meet the entry requirements of their destination country.
“It brings me great joy to announce that DUBZ Home Check-In is now available to all Emirates passengers traveling out of Dubai. Innovation is part of the identity at Emirates and DUBZ, and I have high hopes that this collaboration will build on this unique culture of creativity to provide Emirates passengers with a safe and seamless travel experience. With today’s challenging environment, such innovation is much needed and demanded by passengers and aviation players alike,” said Omar Abou Faraj, CEO of DUBZ.
