How does Home check-in work?

Home check-in is available for all non-transit passengers travelling from Abu Dhabi International Airport – whether it’s at the start of your trip or before your flight home. All travelling passengers must be available at the time of home check-in, including infants and children. 

Book a check-in slot

Visit Dubz to book.

You can book Home check-in anytime up to seven hours before your flight. Just let us know when you’d like our check-in agents to arrive.

The service is available daily from 8am to 8pm.

We’ll collect your bags

Our agents will arrive to your location in Abu Dhabi 24 to seven hours before your flight, depending on the time slot you book. They’ll verify your travel documents, check you in for your flight, collect your bags and give you your boarding pass and bag tags. You can even select your seat and pay for extra bags if you need to.

Make your way to the airport

With check-in done, you can make your way to Abu Dhabi airport bag-free. Skip the queues and head straight to your gate.

Collect your bags at your destination

Your bags will be ready and waiting for you when you land at your destination.

Head straight to the gate

With Home check-in, you can avoid the usual check-in queues at the airport and head straight to the gate. Your bags will be collected directly from your home, hotel or office in the UAE, leaving you to travel to the airport bag-free.

Our agents will weigh your bags at your home before they’re checked in, so if you need to pay for extra baggage – or take anything out of your case – you can simply arrange it there and then. You can even reserve your seat on board to make sure that you sit close to the people you’re travelling with.

Your bags will be kept safe and secure before they’re loaded on the flight, and you’ll be kept up to date with SMS notifications letting you know exactly where your bags are at every step of your journey.
