Emirates will discontinue paper boarding passes for passengers traveling out of Dubai.


Emirates: No paper boarding pass starting May 15

Travelers who will be flying out of Dubai on Emirates airline will no longer be issued paper boarding passes starting May 15, according to the airline.

Emirates said it will phase out paper boarding passes from May 15 onwards, and that passengers checking in at Dubai International Airport Terminal 3 will receive e-passes via email or SMS instead.

Passengers checking in online can download their boarding pass into their Apple Wallet or Google Wallet, or through the Emirates app. Passengers will receive their checked-in baggage receipt via email, and also on their Emirates app.

According to Emirates, the move to scrap paper boarding passes is to reduce the risk of lost or misplaced boarding passes while significantly reducing paper waste.

Passengers going through airport security, Dubai Duty Free or boarding the plane can show their e-boarding pass on their mobile phone. Each e-boarding pass has a unique QR code.

Passengers who do not have a working mobile phone or don’t have access to the internet can request to have the boarding pass printed at Emirates check-in counters.

Printed boarding passes can also be issued to passengers traveling with infants, unaccompanied minors, passengers needing special assistance, passengers with onward flights on other airlines, and all passengers traveling on flights to the US. ICA/Expat Media
