A new city check-in service has been inaugurated in Al Ain for passengers traveling from Abu Dhabi's Zayed International Airport.

New City Check-In Service in Al Ain

A new city check-in service has recently been introduced in Al Ain, enhancing the convenience for passengers traveling from Abu Dhabi's Zayed International Airport.

Located at Lulu Hypermarket, Kuwaitat, on Shakhboot Bin Sultan Street in the Central District, this branch of Morafiq Aviation Services represents the latest expansion in Abu Dhabi's efforts to provide efficient airport services closer to residents. It joins existing facilities in Mussafah and Yas Mall, further extending the accessibility of city check-in options for air travelers.

Passengers flying with Etihad Airways, Air Arabia, Wizz Air, and Egypt Air can utilize this service to drop off their baggage and collect boarding passes between 24 and 7 hours prior to their scheduled departure. This advance check-in option not only allows travelers to skip the potentially lengthy queues at the airport but also enables them to embark on their journey with greater ease and less stress.

By leveraging the Al Ain city check-in facility, travelers can streamline their airport experience, reducing the time spent at the terminal and ensuring a smoother transition from city to flight.

Expansion and Operational Hours

In addition to Al Ain, Morafiq Aviation Services operates similar city check-in facilities at Yas Mall, Mussafah, and Terminal 1 of Abu Dhabi Cruise Terminal in Zayed Port. These facilities are strategically located to enhance passenger convenience and optimize airport operations.

The Al Ain facility operates daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., accommodating passengers throughout the day with flexible hours to cater to varying travel schedules. Charges for the service are Dh35 per adult, Dh25 per child under 12 years old, and Dh15 per infant under 2 years old, ensuring affordability for families and individuals alike.

Enhanced Passenger Experience

This initiative underscores Abu Dhabi's commitment to enhancing passenger experience and convenience across its transport network. By decentralizing check-in services and offering them closer to residential areas, the emirate aims to reduce congestion at the main airport terminals and provide travelers with more flexibility in managing their travel logistics.

The introduction of the Al Ain city check-in service not only benefits travelers but also positively impacts the local community. It creates job opportunities and supports economic growth in the region by attracting more travelers and fostering tourism. Moreover, by expanding its network of city check-in facilities, Abu Dhabi is poised to attract more airlines and enhance its status as a hub for regional and international air travel.

The launch of the city check-in service in Al Ain represents a significant step towards improving the overall travel experience for residents and visitors flying out of Abu Dhabi's Zayed International Airport. With its strategic location, flexible operational hours, and commitment to customer convenience, the service is expected to play a crucial role in simplifying airport processes and meeting the evolving needs of air travelers in the region. As the service continues to expand and evolve, it will contribute to Abu Dhabi's reputation as a forward-thinking and traveler-friendly destination.
