Emirates signs agreement with German Police.

DUBAI, U.A.E.,1 December 2015:Emirates has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Bundespolizei, Germany’s Federal Police, which will enhance the effectiveness of travel documentation screening procedures and ensure a more efficient journey on flights to Germany.

Under the agreement, documentation checks at Dubai International Airport for passengers travelling to Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg and Dusseldorf will be conducted by specially trained Emirates personnel with extensive knowledge of Germany’s immigration procedures. The agreement also adds a secondary documentation screening check at the gate prior to boarding the aircraft.

The memorandum, which is the first of its kind between Germany’s Federal Police and an airline, will reduce the likelihood of transporting passengers without correct documentation. It will also reduce the time Emirates passengers spend going through immigration upon arrival in Germany.

The new procedures have already been put into effect on all Emirates flights into the country.
