This service is exclusive and stress bursting only for travellers flying with the National airline of the UAE. It starts from Dh209 to four bag, and allows travellers to complete preflight procedures from their home.
NOT ALL PASSENGERS CAN USE THIS SERVICE! Only if you are located within 70 kms radius, a request is granted free of cost. On the contrary, passengers will have to pay an additional fee to request the same.
This service is not available for anyone flying to the U.S., accompanied minors, passengers travelling with pets or those requiring medical assistance.
How does it work?
Travellers need to book this service anytime at the time of booking or 7 hours before departure. Select the required date & time for check-in procedure. Appointments are available from 8 AM – 8 PM, all days a week. After bookings, agents will check travel documents & collect bags.
