Latest Dubai airline to offer check-in to your door
Time Out Dubai staff
Never allow enough time for yourself at the airport? Dubai airline flydubai is offering a home check-in service, making it the second local carrier to extend the to-your-door option, following a similar announcement from Emirates back in April.
Through a partnership with DUBZ and dnata, the service is now available for bookings made through flydubai.com, on both new and existing itineraries. Prices start at Dhs110 for one bag, with 30 percent off until June 30.
Between 24 and six hours ahead of departure, the new doorstep check-in and baggage collection service means passengers can hand their luggage straight over to dedicated DUBZ staff without even leaving their home or office (ideal if you’re frantically trying to fire off those last few emails before your summer hols, or herd up the family pets before taking them to the kennels).
And that’s not all – passengers who are only travelling with hand baggage can also benefit from the service. Bags will be collected before being handed back to the passenger on arrival at the airport, before boarding their flight.
Meanwhile, passengers flying into Dubai even have the option to have their baggage collected from the luggage belt and delivered directly to their hotel, home or office. Prices for belt pick-up start from Dhs99 (again, with 30 percent off until June 30).
That Eid escape is suddenly looking a lot less frantic… From Dhs110 for one bag, from additional Dhs99 for belt pick-up. 30 percent off until June 30. For more, head to www.flydubai.com.
