Emirates expands web seat allocation

30th Jul 2007

All Emirates Airline customers can now
select and secure their preferred seats on their flights at the time of
booking, when they purchase their tickets online at www.emirates.com.Previously available only to customers who purchase First and Business class tickets online, Emirates is now making this feature available to customers booking online for all classes of travel.

The award-winning
airline has simultaneously launched this convenient online service
across its global websites, making it immediately available to customers
in more than 50 countries served by Emirates across Europe, North
America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Australasia.

Ghaith al Ghaith, Emirates Executive Vice President for Commercial
Operations Worldwide said: “Travellers increasingly demand the
convenience of organizing their itineraries via the Internet; and that
is why Emirates continually invests in new ways of providing our
customers with high quality and value-added online services. 


“We pleased to extend our Internet seat selection feature to all our
customers who book online, and we are confident this initiative would be
very well-received.”



Effective immediately, all travellers who purchase their Emirates flight
tickets online can select and book their seats for the flight, from
amongst available seats at the time of purchase. This ensures that on
the day of travel, customers can proceed to the airport with the peace
of mind that they already have secured their preferred seats.


In addition to information on the airline and its latest promotions,
www.emirates.com   provides easy-to-navigate
prompts to guide travellers through the process of selecting their
flight itinerary, purchasing of tickets and selection of seats.


All Emirates customers can also check-in for their flights between 24
and two hours in advance of flight departure via the Internet, and
select their seats from amongst those available at the time. Passengers
can check-in for groups of up to nine persons travelling together, as
well as for connecting flights on Emirates, further shortening waiting
times at the airport.


Customers will be informed that exit row seats onboard any flight can
only be allocated at airport check-in counters, as per international
aviation regulations.
