Emirates Airline today launches a complimentary Chauffeur-drive service in Mumbai, India.

First and Business Class customers arriving/ departing from Mumbais Chatrapathi Shivaji Airport will be treated to a personal chauffeur service to whisk them to/ from any Mumbai home or business address within 50 kilometres of the airport. Emirates will use the Mercedes-Benz C Class series for this new service.

Salem Obaidalla, Emirates Senior Vice President Commercial Operations, West Asia and Indian Ocean said, With Indias economy taking giant strides, the business environment is thriving with greater than ever trade and foreign investment. Added to this is an increasingly affluent Indian middle class seeking two-three international holidays per year. Given this environment, Emirates is witnessing escalating demand for travel to/from Mumbai Indias business and leisure hub. I am confident that the convenience and ease of transfer offered by our latest Chauffeur-drive service will be appreciated by travellers and I expect it to be a popular, relaxing way to end or begin a journey.

All vehicles have been equipped with a Global Positioning System (GPS) Tracker to provide real time information on the vehicles location. Furthermore, the vehicles will follow a pre-determined path to their destination and will not exceed the 60-kilometres /hour speed limit. For destinations that fall beyond the 50 kilometres radius of the airport, an additional charge of Rs 51 per kilometre will be charged and payment can be made directly to the chauffeur via credit card.
