For travellers who want to take quick excursions within the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) nations from Al Maktoum International Airport, Emirates has introduced an on-demand regional charter service. For its charter flights, the airline will fly its Phenom 100 aircraft, which has a four-passenger capacity.
Customers can use the service to travel to a variety of GCC locations both inside and outside of the Emirates’ network, with short turnarounds to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, and the UAE.
A small carry-on bag and a medium bag of up to 15 kg each are allowed for each traveller to check in. According to Sakina Fatima for The Siasat Daily, refreshments are offered, and travellers or reservation staff can accommodate special requirements.
According to a statement from Emirates, the services provide discerning passengers with busy schedules with privacy, a high degree of flexibility, and a hassle-free ground experience.
Private chartered aircraft are increasingly used by business travellers and those who prefer convenience and speed. To go to Al Maktoum International Airport, passengers from Dubai utilising Emirates services will be able to take chauffeur-driven cars.
In addition, visitors will be treated like VIPs upon arrival, with a dedicated agent assisting them in minimising pre-flight wait periods.
Passengers will also gain from accelerated on-the-ground arrivals, VIP customs clearance, and immigration, which are offered by the terminal’s own service partners.
