Recent Posts


There’s nothing like a little freebie when you travel.

Whether it’s a quick perfume spritz at duty-free or a sample from one of the stores, it always adds something special to your trip.

So it’s important to know that there are some family freebies with Emirates that you need to make the most of this summer.

Taking the little ones through the airport can be challenging enough, so enjoy these perks designed to make your journey easier.

Baby amenities

For those flying with infants, Emirates will provide all families with a free baby amenity kit including nappies, a bib, lotion and even a changing matt so that keeping the little ones fresh and clean is easy.

Complimentary strollers

Once inside DXB, families can use the free baby strollers for infants or small children, to get them from A to B as quickly and easily as possible.

Early luggage drop-off

It’s always easier to keep the kids in check when you’re not lugging an array of cases too. So be sure to use the free early luggage drop-off to make your airport experience smoother.

Passengers departing from Dubai can check-in early and drop off their bags at the airport 24 hours before departure.

Or if it’s easier to take the cases to DIFC, you can use the Emirates City Check-In and Travel Store at ICD Brookfield Place, where you can check-in and drop off your luggage as early as 24 hours before the flight.

Dubai Airport Buggies

On the subject of getting through the airport quickly, families can use the buggies or ‘Dubai Taxis’ for free, which will zoom you along to your gate.

Free ice-cream

A chilly treat for the summer only, families can keep the kiddos (and the big kiddos) happy with one of the free ice-creams being handed out in Terminal 3.

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday between noon and 6pm, be sure to keep an eye out for the red and white striped cart and have a browse of the different flavours available.

Kids play areas

There are complimentary play areas in the First and Business Class Lounges in Dubai Airport, Concourse A and B, where families can make full use of the facilities.

As well as arcade games and PlayStation terminals, mums can also make use of the mother and baby care rooms, feeding areas and baby changing facilities.

If you’re not flying in First or Business class, check out where else you can entertain kids in DXB here.

If you want to capture a special moment with the family, cabin crew will offer families a free Polaroid photo of them on the flight to take home.

Coming round with the camera, be sure to make sure the flight attendants snap one of you as they pass by your row.

Unaccompanied minors service

For little ones travelling on their own, families can make use of the complimentary service, which has a specialist member of Emirates ground staff take them through the airport.

For children aged between 5-11 years-old, the children will also get to make use of a dedicated children’s lounge with video games, free Wi-Fi and areas to relax before the flight.

Wi-Fi and Instant Messaging

A last freebie, while on the flight kids get free Wi-Fi messaging onboard Emirates in all classes – simply add the membership number to the booking prior to the flight.

To access the Wi-Fi, you’ll need to sign your children up to the Emirates Skysurfers loyalty programme, where they can earn miles on every Emirates and flydubai flight.
