Emirates Allows Online Check-in 48 Hours Before Take Off

Travelers flying Emirates will now have more time to check-in online in a new policy announced by the airline. Passengers will now be able to check-in as early as 48 hours up and as late as 90 minutes ahead of take off, allowing them to plan their travels to the airport better. Once at the airport, checked in passengers can easily drop off their luggage at the online check-in counters before heading to immigration. Those traveling to and from the U.S., however, will only be able to issue their boarding passes 24 hours before their flights.

“We have always taken into account feedback to improve the customer journey and the extension of online check-in is a result of that,” says Alex Knigge, Emirates’ senior vice presdient of corporate communications marketing and brand. “This is just one of the many initiatives we are implementing to enhance our customers’ experience online.”

In addition to the online check-in option, Emirates is launching a car park check-in service at its base at at the Dubai Airport, allowing customers to check in and drop their luggage at the car park check-in facility between 24 hours to six hours before departure.
