Emirates Online check-in
Check in online and save time at the airport
You can check in online 48 hours ahead of your flight. Select your favourite seat, choose from our current dietary meal options, or take advantage of any last-minute upgrade options. However, all customers still need to go to the airport check-in counter so we can verify your documents and issue your boarding pass.
At check-in, we have implemented social distancing rules and we’re using protective antimicrobial screens at the desk in Dubai.
All our airport staff are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE). This is in line with local regulations and for the protection of our employees and customers.
