There is now an online parking system in Dubai that makes it easy to find parking spaces in malls in Dubai. Majeed Al Futtaim is the owner and operator of Dubai’s major shopping malls. He has created a new system where customers can pre-book parking online prior to arriving at the mall. On weekends and holidays, customers have to wait for parking at Dubai’s malls to be available. This is changing.
Fouad Sharaf is the managing director of Majid Al Futtaim Properties UAE Shopping Malls. He said that the online booking system for parking was currently in the test phase at the Mall of the Emirates. It will soon be available at other malls. You can book parking via the Mall of the Emirates app. You will need to add the vehicle’s number plate to book. A separate zone will be designated for arrival time and parking.
Sharaf stated that he had thought of such a system as congestion is not only felt on weekends but also on weekdays. The parking service can be booked in advance and is free for the first time. Members of the ‘Share Reward Scheme’ have access to a separate parking area. Customers can park their vehicles by simply reading the number on the gate and then opening the gate. The Mall of the Emirates, and the City Center are two of the most popular shopping areas under the Majid Al Futtaim Group.
