Emirates has announced the opening of a new check-in facility in Ajman, UAE in collaboration with the Ajman Transport Authority. The opening of this new facility streamlines the check-in process for its passengers in Ajman and the Northern Emirates.
The new facility, located in the Ajman Central Bus Terminal, is the first remote check-in facility outside of Dubai. The airline states that this will help its passengers “reap the benefits of simple and quick check-in closer to home, reducing queues and improving their overall experience across the first touchpoints of their travel journey”.
Passengers can easily and efficiently check-in, verify COVID-19 related medical records for their destination, receive their boarding passes and board one of the convenient Ajman Transport Authority buses to Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport. Once they arrive at the terminal and disembark, they can drop of their bags in a dedicated baggage area and proceed directly to immigration and security, thus bypassing the check-in area at Dubai International Airport. The airline states that plans are underway to integrate baggage check-in at the new Ajman facility in the coming weeks.
The Emirates check-in facility in Ajman, which is open 24 hours a day, will have 4 counters and 2 self-service kiosks for a contactless start to the journey, allowing check-in, boarding pass collection, choosing or changing seats on board, and updating passport and Skywards information. Bus trips from the facility to Terminal 3 will run in parallel with Emirates’ peak operational periods, which include early and late morning scheduled flights as well the late night departures.

Mohammed Mattar, Divisional Senior Vice President, Emirates Airport Services, said:
We are committed to continually enhancing every aspect of the on-ground experience for our customers and creating a stress-free journey through quick processing and reduced wait times, especially during the busier peak travel periods. Our latest initiative in Ajman, in partnership with the Ajman Transport Authority will deliver a travel experience that our customers from Ajman and the Northern Emirates can truly look forward to, giving them more control over their journey to enjoy the rest of the retail, leisure and Emirates lounge facilities at the airport before they board their flight.
The Ajman check-in facility complements Emirates’ existing facilities for group and family check-in areas at Dubai International, and its cruise passenger check-in facilities at Port Rashid and Dubai Harbour. Emirates also provides a convenient Home Check-in service from anywhere in Dubai, helping passengers complete check-in from the comfort of their home, hotel or office and have their luggage transported to the airport prior to their flight.
