Dubai: Passengers will soon be able to complete their check-in procedures on their way to airports in Dubai as Dubai Taxi plans a new service in cooperation with Dubai Airports, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.

1The service will allow customers to complete procedures such as weighing their luggage, getting the baggage tags and processing boarding passes before they reach the airport.

This will help travellers skip the long queues at baggage check-in counters, enabling them to head straight to passport check and boarding gates, once they reach the airport.

The Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) operated by RTA has presented the proposal to Dubai Airports and both the entities are now in the process of implementing the plan.

“The idea is one of RTA’s initiatives for delivering services capable of raising the level of satisfaction and happiness of people. The idea, which is a brainchild of Abdullah Al Meer, Director of Business Development, was shared with Dubai Airports where it was warmly received,” said Ahmad Khalfan Al Suwaidi, CEO of the DTC.
