Ford Transit Powers DUBZ Check-In Service in Dubai
The ever-steady Ford Transit is used by businesses and fleet operators the world over, and it’s continuing to catch on with more and more new customers by the year. Recently, DUBZ, the Dubai-based baggage transportation company, selected the Ford Transit as the backbone for a new check-in service that allows for easier check-ins.
“We’re extremely pleased to be part of this new initiative,” said Mahendra Menon, Commercial Vehicles Operations manager, Ford Middle East and Africa. “The Transit has built an enviable reputation as the go-to vehicle for every delivery application internationally — and the DUBZ new service highlights yet another way how Transit is broadening its scope around the region.”
DUBZ, which was acquired by dnata earlier in 2018, provides travelers from Dubai and Sharjah to perform the check-in processes typical of an airport experience all from the comfort of their home. The new service lets customers weigh and tag luggage, which is then transported directly to the airport via a Ford Transit. With that process as well as the printing of boarding passes and checking in process handled, customers need only jump into the immigration and security line.
“DUBZ is always looking to deliver convenient and innovative travel services to its customers, and we believe the Ford Transit’s capability and versatility allow us to get the job done in the most efficient way possible,” said Samer Sobh, COO and co-founder of DUBZ.
DUBZ’s new service is being offered to customers flying with flydubai, Saudia, flynas, Kuwait Airline, Gulf Air, and China Southern, and there are plans in the works to expand to additional airlines in the coming year.
