Customers booking the COVID-19 testing service are visited by a team of highly-trained 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.
During the convenient home check-in process the helpful DUBZ agents check in travellers for 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.
Omar Abou Faraj, CEO and Co-Founder of DUBZ, said: "We are delighted to join forces with a trusted healthcare provider to offer another innovative service to Dubai travellers. Our partnership with Mediclinic underlines our 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, said: "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."
