Emirates trials new home check-in service

Emirates is reportedly working on a home check-in service where the airline picks up luggage from the passenger’s home.

The Emirates staff member would scan the person’s passport, the flight details are logged, then the luggage is tagged and the passenger is handed their boarding pass, according to media reports.

While Emirates would not disclose details, a spokesperson told Arabian Business: “At Emirates, we continually invest in innovative ways to improve the customer experience.

“At the moment we are trialling several initiatives to provide greater convenience for our customers and will share details when they become available.”

More evidence of the plan is a new video shared on social media which has given a sneak preview of the system. More info
