Air Arabia opens 'city check-in’ facility in Dubai
Dubai, September 9, 2012
Sharjah-based low-cost carrier Air Arabia has launched its first “City Terminal Check-in” in Dubai which enables passengers to drop-off baggage and receive boarding pass up to 24 hours before flight.
The facility in the Lamcy Plaza shopping mall is Air Arabia’s first check-in service outside of an airport and offers increased convenience for passengers travelling from Dubai, said a statement from the budget carrier.
The counter of Air Arabia’s “City Terminal Check-in” is equipped to accept baggage from passengers which is then sent straight to Sharjah International Airport.
Passengers can check-in 24 hours before their flight, up to three hours before departure, it added.
The checked-in passengers, who can choose seats for their flight, will receive their boarding passes, as well as claim tags for any checked-in luggage, meaning they only need to reach the airport to proceed to their flight, said a top official.
'We know that our customers value the efficiency of Air Arabia’s operations which enables them to travel more for less,” remarked Adel Ali, the Group CEO at the inauguration of the facility on Sunday.
“Our new City Check-in facility will be a great value addition for our passengers; helping to reduce the amount of time they need to spend at the airport and making the process of flying just a little more hassle free,” he noted.
According to him, the new city terminal check-in is available to passengers from today, and will operate seven days a week, from 9am to 10pm.
'Air Arabia shuttle service to Sharjah International Airport is currently available from Lamcy Plaza,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
