Like all airlines, also Emirates flights can have a different status like delayed, cancelled or on time. Usually, the airline is trying to update you on the status of your flight directly in conjunction with the airport you are flying from.
To get a flight status on an Emirates flight you need to know the flight number, the airline abbreviation (EK) as well as the date you are flying. Inserting this into tools like FLIO will allow you to receive real-time updates on the development of the flight.
The airline Emirates will be interested to inform you directly on anomalies surrounding your flight, especially delays can cause you to miss a connecting flight which then causes problems for the traveller and the airline, as they need to find space on a later flight. Depending on the length of the delay and reason for it you may even be eligible for a monetary payment on flights running from the EU.
Obviously, any airline and also Emirates will avoid flight cancellations, however bad weather and other force majeure reasons can cause a flight to be cancelled. To be updated on any flight status changes you should check tools like FLIO or the airport you are flying from to avoid unwanted surprises.
If you want to receive status updates for Emirates flights you can use the FLIO app to be always up to date on delays, gate changes as well as any modification or cancellations on your trip. Please note that FLIO is only providing status update information, you will need to resolve anomalies of a given flight directly with the airline or your travel agent.
To check in for Emirates flights, Emirates offers its passengers online and offline check-in. Frequent flyers and people travelling in business class or higher can also check-in via the priority-check-in and access fast lane. The number of pieces for hand luggage and baggage generally vary by status and also by the fare level of your ticket. We suggest to check-in online as early as possible to have the best choice of seats still available to choose from. Once done, do not forget to scan your boarding pass with FLIO, then you can relax and continue to check your flight status via our app.
