Here’s great news for those of you who leave packing for last-minute and dash to the airport, barely in time to catch your flight, only to find yourself confronted with mile-long queues that snake all the way to the terminal entrance.
To be the summer scram, Emirates has just introduced an early check-in facility, located adjacent to Terminal 3 car park area in Zone C, allowing passengers to check-in up to 24 hours in advance – except those travelling to the United States.
To provide a more seamless and efficient travel experience, 16 counters at the new check-in facility will allow passengers to not just check-in, but also drop off their luggage, obtain their boarding pass, and have the flexibility to return to the airport at their convenience and proceed directly to immigration.
The check-in facility will operate throughout the week from 5pm to 10am, targeting the peak overnight travel period.
“As passenger traffic through Emirates Terminal 3 continues to grow, the Emirates Airport Services team is constantly looking at ways to innovate and improve efficiencies to ensure that passengers enjoy a stress-free travel experience and the high quality service for which Emirates is renowned,” said Mohammad H Mattar – Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates Airport Services, in a statement.
“Our goal is continuous improvement and the new check-in facility is just another addition to our already diverse offering of passenger services.”
The facility is expected to draw in passengers who travel in large groups, along with parents travelling with young children.
