Baggage technology and logistics company DUBZ has opened a new check-in station in The Dubai Mall – one of the world’s most visited retail and lifestyle destinations – to offer airline passengers more convenience.
The service is available to passengers of nine airlines, including flydubai, SAUDIA, flynas, China Southern, Kuwait Airways, Gulf Air, SaudiGulf, Royal Jordanian, and Ethiopian Airlines.
The station is located in the dnata Travel store on the lower ground level of the mall, where the DUBZ team checks in customers for their flights, prints their boarding passes, weighs and secures their baggage and ensures they are delivered to the airport and loaded onto the aircraft.
After collecting their boarding passes and baggage tags, customers can enjoy shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities of The Dubai Mall, and then take the Dubai metro to the airport through a travellator that links the mall to the metro station. DUBZ customers can arrive at the terminal up to 60 minutes before their flight, where they can proceed straight to passport control.
The DUBZ check-in station is open seven days a week, from 10am to 10pm.
The service is available from AED 99 ($27), which covers the check-in fee for one passenger with one piece of luggage. Additional pieces of luggage can be added for a fee of AED 40 ($9) each. The service price is capped at AED 249 ($56) covering up to 10 bags.
Omar Abou Faraj, CEO and Co-Founder of DUBZ, said: “Travelling and shopping in one of the world’s largest malls on the same day has never been so easy. We are thrilled to be launching our popular remote check-in services at The Dubai Mall, adding more value to our offering. We stay focused on ensuring a hassle-free travel experience for the residents and visitors of Dubai through innovative and secure services.”
Antonio Fellino, Vice President of Retail & eCommerce for dnata Travel UAE, said: “We are delighted to partner with DUBZ to offer travellers a convenient way to check-in for their flights from our flagship store at The Dubai Mall. We are sure that the innovative product of DUBZ will be popular among customers, who can now take advantage of the two companies’ excellent value services at the same time and location. We look forward to our successful cooperation!”
