Emirates launches charter services from Dubai for short trips to GCC nations
Emirates has launched on-demand regional charter service for passengers who want to make short trips in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries from Al Maktoum International Airport. The airline will use its Phenom 100 aircraft, which has a capacity of four passengers, for its charter services.
The service allows customers to travel to several destinations in the GCC within and outside the Emirates network, with quick turnaround to points in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and within the UAE.
Each passenger can check in a medium-sized bag weighing up to 15 kg, as well as a small carry-on bag. Refreshments are available and special requests can be made to travel agents or reservation representatives, reports Sakina Fatima for The Siasat Daily.
The services offer discerning travellers with busy schedules privacy and a high level of flexibility, with a hassle-free ground experience, Emirates said in a statement.
The use of private chartered flights gain popularity for convenience, speed, and business travellers. Passengers from Dubai using Emirates services will be able to use chauffeur-driven vehicles to travel to Al Maktoum International Airport.
Additionally, guests will receive VIP treatment when they arrive, with a dedicated representative helping them minimise pre-flight wait times.
Upon arrival at their destination, passengers will also benefit from expedited on-the-ground escort arrivals, VIP customs clearance and immigration, provided by the terminal’s own service partners. (Source: The Siasat Daily)
