Emirates introduces Mobile Check-in Ports at Dubai International Airport

Emirates has introduced “unique” Mobile Check-in Ports at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3 “as part of its commitment to continuously innovate at every customer touchpoint and improve the journey experience”.

These Mobile Check-in Ports will be deployed throughout the check-in halls at Dubai International Airport’s Terminal 3.

Agents at the Check-in Ports, which were developed in the United Arab Emirates, will help check-in customers, weigh the bags, tag them, and will also provide boarding passes. Once tagged, porters will place luggage on a dedicated belt destined for each passengers’ aircraft. Each Check-in Port has a scale attached to it for weighing luggage and Emirates’ agents will be also on hand at each station to provide assistance and answer any queries passengers may have.

Emirates states that those passengers who have two or less bags to check-in travelling in Economy, Business or First Class are “encouraged” to use the service, which will help cut down on queues and reduce waiting times during peak hours.

Adel Al Redha, Chief Operating Officer, Emirates, said:

The use of advanced technologies and robots will continue to be introduced in our operational and customer touchpoints. We are committed to continually uplift our services and provide our customers a seamless experience and better journeys. Our latest Check-in Portals are a step in this direction and we are also working on other initiatives that rely on technology and artificial intelligence, to be introduced in the near future at different areas. We are fortunate to work with partners who share the same vision in utilising digital platforms and advanced technologies to improve processes and ultimately, customer experience.

In order to improve the passenger experience and reduce wait times at every point, the Dubai-based airline has previously launched an integrated biometric path at Dubai International Airport, working closely with airport stakeholders to deliver an entirely contactless airport experience. The Smart Tunnel is a world-first for passport control, where passengers simply walk through a tunnel and are “cleared” by immigration authorities without human intervention or the need for a physical passport stamp.

Emirates has also introduced other technology-driven services including self-check-in and bag drop kiosks at DXB for a smoother and contactless airport experience.

Meanwhile, Emirates recently announced that it will add a second daily Airbus A380 service to Melbourne in May 2022.
