Travel in and out of the city is set to get even more convenient! Emirates Airline is testing out a new self-service check in kiosk, with plans to install them at various Metro stations throughout Dubai. The machines will allow passengers to check in for their flight, select seats and print a boarding pass without having to queue once they arrive at the airport. Luggage could then be checked in at dedicated quick baggage counters, while passengers carrying only hand luggage would be able to head straight to immigration.
According to Dubai newspaper XPRESS, the Mall of the Emirates station will be the first one to receive the innovative new machines. This stop is just a five minute ride from Tecom’s Metro station, conveniently located right outside The First Group’s up and coming Metro Central Hotel Apartments. From there, commuters will be able to enjoy a quick and easy traffic free commute directly to Dubai International Airport’s doorstep.
