Urgent.. Emirates announces extended closure of check-in counters
Emirates announces extended closure of check-in counters, Emirates' first-class check-in facilities at Dubai International Airport's Terminal 3 will stay shuttered until October 1.
The airline stated that the counters were closed for remodelling and to improve the traveller experience. Some check-in counters will be shuttered for three weeks, according to an advice given last month.
However, the airline has modified its warning regarding check-in desks for first-class passengers, instructing them to utilise premium check-in counters instead.
The aim of closing travel check-in offices
In the post-pandemic era, the Dubai-based carrier has had an extremely high seat occupancy rate. Between June and August 2023, Emirates operated approximately 50,000 flights to and from 140 locations, transporting over 14 million passengers with average seat load factors surpassing 80% across its global network.
"We're improving your Terminal 3 experience." "Our First Class checkin counters will be closed for enhancements until October 1, 2023, and Emirates Skywards Gold members travelling in Economy Class should proceed to our premium checkin counters in Area 6 in the meantime," Emirates stated in a statement on its website.
In the next months, the airline anticipates an increase in demand for travel to Dubai due to the city's crowded calendar of worldwide conferences, world-class sporting events, and other events.
"We're delighted to see such strong customer preference for our product across all cabin classes, particularly in our premium cabins." Emirates will continue to provide the best value for money to our customers by investing in our products and services and maintaining an efficient worldwide network," said Adnan Kazim, chief commercial officer of Emirates.
