Emirates has launched its City Check-in and Travel Store in Dubai’s financial district, featuring Sara, a portable robotic check-in assistant designed to assist customers when booking their travels, checking-in for flights and dropping off their luggage.

Situated at ICD Brookfield Place, the remote check-in centre will enable customers to enhance their experience by utilizing self check-in kiosks, dedicated desks with Emirates agents, or with the assitance of Sara – who has the ability to match faces with scanned passports, check passengers in, and guide them to the luggage drop area.

“Emirates City Check In is our latest addition to the Emirates travel experience, showing our commitment to providing customers with an array of check-in options,” said Adel al Redha, Emirates’ chief operating officer.

“We are pleased to collaborate with ICD Brookfield on this project and look forward to providing our customers with more technology-focused solutions in the future.”
