Passengers flying from Dubai Airport can now complete COVID-19 testing from their home and office as part of their flight check-in process.
They will additionally obtain a medical certificate within 24 to 48 hours of testing at any location of their choice in Dubai.
DUBZ says its new partnership with Mediclinic will further enhanced its offering to help travelers in Dubai “enjoy a safe, seamless and worry-free travel experience.”
dnata’s baggage technology and logistics company explained that customers booking the COVID-19 testing service are visited by a team of medical professionals who perform a swab test on all passengers ahead of the home check-in process.
“The samples are tested in a medical laboratory and the results are shared with customers digitally. All passengers testing negative for COVID-19 receive a medical certificate. The COVID-19 testing services are delivered by Mediclinic, a trusted global healthcare provider,” it said in a statement.
Omar Abou Faraj, CEO and Co-Founder of DUBZ, said the partnership with Mediclinic underlines the company’s commitment to, “ensuring a safe, hassle-free travel experience for customers. We continue to work hard to deliver innovative solutions that make a difference.”
David Hadley, CEO, Mediclinic Middle East, added: “Mediclinic is delighted to partner with DUBZ on this new initiative which will enable people to start travelling safely, with peace of mind that they are healthy, and that they have undergone testing with the minimum amount of contact before their flight. Our dedicated Covid-19 testing laboratories also mean that results are available quickly and accurately.”
The home check-in process from DUBZ agents allows travelers to check in their flights, print their boarding passes, weigh and tag their baggage and ensure that they are delivered to the airport and loaded onto the aircraft. All baggage is treated with disinfectant to remove any germs and provide protection from microbes for up to 72 hours.
At the airport, DUBZ customers are met by marhaba’s meet & greet agents who fast-track them through immigration. Each marhaba agent wears gloves and a mask, and abides by social distancing guidelines while assisting passengers at the airport.
The home check-in service can be booked 24/7 online on DUBZ.com from only AED 199. The services are available from 8:00 AM to 9:00 PM, seven days a week.
