Majid Al Futtaim, which owns and operates major shopping malls across Dubai, is running trials of a new system that will allow customers to pre-book their parking spot online before they reach the mall.
Fuad Sharaf, managing director, UAE Shopping Malls, Majid Al Futtaim Properties, “Some people want to plan their journey before they come to the mall. For example, they ask for the parking space to be booked for them before they reach the mall. The online parking booking is in the testing phase at the Mall of the Emirates and we‘ll definitely roll it out (at other malls).”
Shoppers can download the Mall of the Emirates app and add their vehicle’s number plate in the parking pre-booking section. The time of arrival and the parking will be booked in a specific zone for the customers.
The pre-booking of parking service is currently free of charge. “We want to promote such services to our loyal customers. We have a dedicated parking for the ’Share’ reward scheme members. If you’re a ‘Share’ member, you get dedicated space in the Mall of the Emirates. And this scheme will also be rolled out in other malls. The system reads your numbers, opens the gate and you can park automatically and it’s free of charge service.”
The group is also running trials of pre-booking parking spots at Mirdif City Centre for people coming to watch movies at Vox Cinema.
