Value Add Seats bookable in GDSs
Advanced seat reservations were rolled out in Feb 2017 and in this second phase you will be able to offer your customers a more personalized choice based on their travel needs. New options include extra legroom seat, twin seats (available on select routes) and preferred seats (allows for faster disembark). All value add seats are now bookable in the GDS.
My Emirates Dubai Pass
Give your customers access to over 250 exclusive offers at restaurants, spas and attractions across Dubai, simply by showing their boarding pass.
All they have to do is bring their boarding pass to participating venues to enjoy the discounts.
To take advantage, fly to Dubai with us between 1 January and 31 March 2018.
Inclusion of contact details in PNR
With some unavoidable disruptions due to inclement weather experienced along the Eastern seaboard during the recent holiday season we wanted to give a gentle reminder on the importance of including all passenger contact details (email, phone numbers) with all PNRs made.
Having these details makes it so much easier for our systems to provide timely updates to all concerned passengers and ensure that no passenger is left without the information they need.
Smart Baggage restrictions
There are restrictions placed on carrying smart bags with lithium batteries as checked-in or carry-on baggage on all our flights. Smart or innovative baggage includes bags with motors, power banks, GPS, GSM, Bluetooth, RFID or Wi-Fi technology.
For cabin baggage
Smart bags within the cabin size and weight will be allowed in the cabin only if the battery is removable. The battery can stay in the bag with the bag powered off completely. You can’t charge the bag on board.
For checked baggage
Smart bags are allowed as checked-in baggage if the battery is removed and carried in the cabin.
Bags with built-in batteries that cannot be removed are banned both as cabin and checked in baggage.
