Etihad Guests Enjoy New Dubai Check-in Facility

Published May 7th, 2006 - 06:33 GMT

Dubai-based Guests of Etihad Airways now have the luxury of being able to check-in for their flight – at any time of the day – thanks to the opening of the new ‘Dubai city check-in’ facility.

As the only international carrier with a Dubai city check-in service, Etihad has positioned the conveniently-located facility on Sheikh Zayed Road. Guests can now organise their ticketing, security screening and baggage check-in on the ground floor of the Etihad Office in Chelsea Towers.

“Etihad Airways has built a reputation for providing Guests with stress-free travel whether on the ground, or in the air, and this extends to Guests who live or have been staying in Dubai. Once checked-in, Guests can enjoy the luxury coach service to Abu Dhabi International Airport which is less than an hour from new Dubai,” said HH Sheikh Dr Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan, chairman, Etihad Airways.

The new facility has proved extremely popular with Coral, Pearl and Diamond zone Guests because the service affords more time in Dubai to conduct business meetings, shop or even dine at the city’s numerous restaurants.

“Being able to check-in up to 24-hours before flying is a bonus for business or leisure travellers. It removes the stress of congested queues and lengthy terminal walks, providing Guests with the considerable luxury of extending their holiday or business. People are so busy these days that leaving Etihad to manage their baggage offers tremendous peace-of-mind,” continued HH Sheikh Dr Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan.

Also based at Etihad’s Sheikh Zayed Road office, is the airline’s Dubai sales and marketing office which is situated on the mezzanine floor.

“The positioning of Etihad’s Sheikh Zayed Road office is ideally located in central Dubai. Whether staying in Deira or Jumeirah, it is only a short distance to the check-in facility. It also means that once the formalities are complete, Guests can return to the beach one last time, or visit one of Dubai’s shopping malls,” concluded HH Sheikh Dr Ahmed Bin Saif Al Nahyan.

Once checked-in, Diamond and Pearl zone Guests will be chauffeured in a luxurious limousine to Abu Dhabi International Airport and Coral zone Guests will be able to take one of the frequent air-conditioned coaches.

Etihad recently took delivery of 16 brand new top-of-the-range Mercedes-Benz coaches, which offer convenient connections for any Dubai or Al Ain-based Guests travelling to and from Abu Dhabi International Airport.

Each Etihad coach is equipped with the very best climate controlled systems, which along with individually adjustable lighting, provides a relaxing and pleasant atmosphere.
