First Air Arabia ‘City Terminal Check-in’ opens in Dubai

09 September 2012

Air Arabia, the first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and North Africa, announced today the launch of its first “City Terminal Check-in” in Dubai. The facility in the Lamcy Plaza shopping mall is Air Arabia’s first check-in service outside of an airport and offers increased convenience for passengers travelling from Dubai. 

The counter of Air Arabia’s “City Terminal Check-in” is equipped to accept baggage from passengers which is then sent straight to Sharjah International Airport. Passengers can check-in 24 hours before their flight, up to three hours before departure.

Checked-in passengers, who can choose seats for their flight, will receive their boarding passes, as well as claim tags for any checked-in luggage, meaning they only need to reach the airport to proceed to their flight.

"We know that our customers value the efficiency of Air Arabia’s operations which enables them to travel more for less,” said, Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia. “Our new City Check-in facility will be a great value addition for our passengers; helping to reduce the amount of time they need to spend at the airport and making the process of flying just a little more hassle free.” 

“City Terminal Check-in” was inaugurated during a ceremony held today in Dubai, which was attended by the airline’s officials, trade partners, Lamcy Plaza officials and media. 

The Air Arabia “City Terminal Check-in” at Lamcy Plaza is available to passengers from today, and will operate seven days a week, from 9am to 10pm. Air Arabia shuttle service to Sharjah International Airport is currently available from Lamcy Plaza.
