Emirates has introduced off-airport check-in at Ajman bus terminal.
Emirates passengers can take check-in at the bus terminal, take the short bus trip to the airport and drop bags at a special area at Terminal 3.
Located in the Ajman Central Bus Terminal the check-in area is the first Emirates off-airport check-in outside of Dubai. Open 24 hours a day, the Emirates check-in area will have four desks and two self-service kiosks.
- choose or change seats
- update passport and Skywards information
- verify Covid-19 related medical records for their destination
- collect boarding passes
They then take an Ajman Transport Authority bus to Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport. The distance is about 30km and takes about 22 minutes.
Once passengers arrive at Terminal 3, they drop their bags in a dedicated baggage area and proceed directly to immigration and security, bypassing the check-in desks.
Plans are underway to integrate baggage check-in at the new Ajman check-in in the coming weeks.
Bus trips from the bus terminal to Terminal 3 run in parallel with Emirates’ peak operational periods, which include early and late morning scheduled flights as well as late night departures.
Mohammed Mattar, Divisional Senior Vice President Emirates Airport Services:
“We are committed to continually enhancing every aspect of the on-ground experience for our customers and creating a stress-free journey through quick processing and reduced wait times, especially during the busier peak travel periods. Our latest initiative in Ajman, in partnership with the Ajman Transport Authority will deliver a travel experience that our customers from Ajman and the Northern Emirates can truly look forward to, giving them more control over their journey to enjoy the rest of the retail, leisure and Emirates lounge facilities at the airport before they board their flight.”
Emirates off-airport check-in
Emirates already has off-airport check-in at Port Rashid and Dubai Harbour. The airline also provides a convenient Home Check-in service from anywhere in Dubai. That allows passengers to complete check-in from their home, hotel or office and have their bags transported to the airport before their flight.
