DUBAI: DUBZ, a leading baggage technology and logistics company and part of dnata, has opened a new ‘check-in station’ in The Dubai Mall, the world’s most visited retail and lifestyle destination, to offer airline passengers another convenient option to take advantage of its innovative services.
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 the various shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities The Dubai Mall offers to its visitors, and then take the Dubai metro to the airport through the convenient, air-conditioned 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.
DUBZ provides its services to the passengers of nine airlines, including flydubai, SAUDIA, flynas, China Southern, Kuwait Airways, Gulf Air, SaudiGulf, Royal Jordanian, and Ethiopian Airlines.
Like most of the shops in the Dubai Mall, the DUBZ check-in station is also open seven days a week, from 10 am to 10 pm.
The service is available from AED 99, 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 each. The service price is capped at AED 249 covering up to 10 bags.
Omar Abou Faraj, CEO and Co-Founder of DUBZ, said: “Traveling 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.
