The kiosks allow customers to check-in, receive their boarding pass, choose seats on board, and drop off their bags.​ While Emirates staff will be on hand for any assistance required, the facilities are fully self-service, allowing customers to seamlessly traverse through the airport and onto immigration.

The facilities are cleaned and disinfected regularly and hand sanitisers too are available for customers to use.

The solution, developed in house in collaboration with Dubai Aviation Engineering Projects and Dubai Airports, forms part of a string of services offered by the carrier for greater convenience and a secure travel experience for customers.

The self check-in kiosks will be continually upgraded to offer new features in the future including going touchless, and allowing customers to make re-bookings on their own.

Emirates is gradually resuming operations and reconstructing its network to cater to slow albeit growing travel opportunities. Its passenger network will rise to 94 destinations next month.
