All Skywards customers, travelling with just the hand baggage, can now check in for a flight using the new self check-in kiosks at Dubai International Airport.
The chairman of Emirates, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, unveiled the kiosks in the departures hall for Emirates’ first and business class customers.
These kiosks are also located at the airport’s main departures hall for Skywards members travelling in economy class.
Members of Skywards, the frequent flyer programme of Emirates and SriLankan Airlines, who are carrying just hand baggage, can check in for a flight using their membership card.
The facility is also available to members of Skywards’ partner airlines - British Airways, Continental Airlines, Delta, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines, South African Airways and United Airlines.
Customers only need to insert their membership card and their booking is displayed on the kiosk screen, following verification of the card’s number, given at the time of booking the flight.
They can then confirm or change the assigned seat, register their Skywards or partner frequent flyer Miles, and print their boarding cards, which include the First or Business Class Lounge invitation.
The self check-in kiosks will soon accept larger baggage that can be checked into the aircraft’s hold.
Customers travelling in first, business or economy class can also use their e-cards to pass through the electronically-controlled gates (e-gates) at immigration, giving them more time before their flight to enjoy the numerous facilities of Sheikh Rashid Terminal.
