IN PARTNERSHIP: Introducing a seamless, stress-free, and eco-conscious chauffeur service in Dubai.
Blacklane is a combined concept of stress-free and sustainable travel that allows fast-paced travellers to move through the city seamlessly – and save the planet one ride at a time. Currently operating in more than 50 countries globally, Blacklane is the leading chauffeur-hailing service offering a premium experience with sustainability in mind. Providing a comfortable ride experience, passengers can enjoy the journey with its ventilated seats, in-chair massage, and ambient cabin lighting, creating an oasis of calm – which is all a tap away.
This month sees Blacklane’s first-of its-kind launch in the region of an all-electric fleet of customised, top-of-the-range Mercedes EQs, captained by impeccably dressed male and female chauffeurs that provide the highest standards of service, safety, etiquette, and discretion.
“As part of our commitment to the environment, we are proud to offer an all-electric fleet, which will dramatically reduce carbon emissions […] a step forward towards a more sustainable future,” says Nicolas Soucailler, General Manager.
The electric vehicle rollout bolsters Blacklane’s already impressive eco-credentials that align with the United Arab Emirates Net Zero by 2050 strategic initiative and supports the UAE’s announcement to declare 2023 as the year of sustainability. One of out of the many service highlights of Blacklane includes transparent fixed pricing at the time of booking for short trips and inter-emirate journeys, with a 15-minute complimentary wait time. Guests have the option of booking rides on-demand or using the pre-booked option with a minimum wait time of 60-minutes. These updates are just the beginning and there is more to come.
“We are strategically investing in the important Middle East market as a test bed to introduce new offerings which will diversify our business model and allow us to expand and open new markets,” says Dr Jens Wholtorf, Co-Founder and CEO of Blacklane.
