Dubai carrier offers discounts on flights across its network of 126 destinations
Emirates Airline said on Friday it was launching a 10-day sale on air faces across its network of 126 destinations.
The Dubai airline said the discounts were being offered on the back of its recently announced half year profits of AED2.1bn ($575m).
The promotion, which runs until December 2, is valid for travel between January 22 and June 10 2013, the carrier said in a statement.
The savings mean that passengers can fly, for example, from Dubai to other Middle East destinations from AED930.
Prices to the Indian Subcontinent start at AED960, fares to Africa begin at AED1,400, Europe can be visited from AED1,530, the Americas from AED4,170, while Australasia can now reached from AED4,730, the statement said.
“This network-wide initiative pushes the value bar a notch higher, making it even more attractive to embark on that trip of a lifetime, visit a relative or friend, or explore a new market for business,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ executive vice president, Passenger Sales Worldwide.
Emirates operates flights to 126 destinations in 74 countries. So far this year, Emirates has started services to Dublin, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dallas Fort Worth, Seattle, Lusaka, Harare, Ho Chi Minh City, Barcelona, Lisbon, Washington DC and Adelaide.
Still to come in 2012 are Lyon and Phuket while Warsaw and Algiers will follow in the months to come.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
