The service is currently available to customers in all classes, on all Emirates flights departing from Dubai. Emirates will progressively offer this pre-order service on flights inbound to its Dubai hub.

The technology platform powering the EmiratesRED pre-order service was developed by Bonflite, an innovative company which has emerged from Intelak, one of the UAE's most established incubator programmes for travel and aviation start-ups.
