Emirates has extended its online check-in from 24 to 48 hours before departure.
Customers around the world can check in online on both desktop and mobile devices from 48 hours to 90 minutes before flight departure.
The increased lead time offers greater flexibility in choosing seats and reduces waiting times at the airport.
For flights to and from the United States, while online check-in is available 48 hours before departure, boarding passes will only be issued 24 hours in advance.
Emirates Skywards members will have greater access to upgrades.
In addition to online check-in services, the airline also operates car park check-in facilities around the clock at its hub in Dubai. Customers can choose to check in and drop their luggage at the car park check-in facilities from 24 to six hours prior to departure. Alternatively, customers travelling out of Dubai can choose to drop their luggage at one of the 46 dedicated bag drop counters in economy class or separate counters in first and business class at Dubai International Airport, from six hours to 90 minutes prior to departure.
