Beginning June 2nd, Lufthansa passengers can now print their boarding pass at home providing greater flexibility and time to spare before departing on their flights from Dubai.

Lufthansa German Airlines operates daily from Dubai to Frankfurt and six times a week from Dubai to Munich offering convenient onward flights to destinations in Europe and the US. From the choice of booking the flight and checking in online, passengers traveling with carry-on luggage can make their way directly to security control with the ‘Home Printed Boarding Pass’.

The printed boarding card contains all the flight-relevant information – the name of the traveler, flight number, as well as a 2D barcode for the purpose of authentification and right of access to the gate area. After checking in online, Lufthansa passengers can print out of the online boarding card up to 180 minutes prior to departure from Dubai. Passengers with luggage can drop their bags at specially marked counters until 60 minutes before the flight leaves.

Most recently, Lufthansa has announced the introduction of a range of innovations such as the launch of a ‘Mobile Boarding Pass’, whereby the customer receives the boarding pass by simply sending an email or SMS. This service has been available since April for flights between Hamburg and Munich or Frankfurt. Boarding via mobile phone will be available on most intra-German flights beginning this summer.
