Emirates is offering discounts on flights to over 100 cities

Emirates Airline has announced discounts of up to 25 percent on flights to more than 100 cities as part of a New Year promotion.

The Dubai carrier said it is celebrating the New Year by offering the discounts on bookings until January 9.

Customers can save up to 25 percent off all published First Class, Business Class and Economy Class fares departing between January 22 and June 30 2012, when travelling round-trip to any destination on Emirates’ extensive global network, the airline said in a statement.

Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ executive vice president of passenger sales worldwide, said: “For the first time in Emirates’ history, we are welcoming in the New Year by offering unprecedented savings to our customers."

Last week, Emirates Airline said it will launch its superjumbo A380 on new routes to Australia and Japan next year.

As the Dubai-based carrier welcomed its 20th Airbus A380 to its fleet, it said Melbourne and Tokyo would become new destinations for its flagship aircraft next year.

The A380 will operate as EK406, the non-stop flight from Dubai to Melbourne and on to Auckland from October 1 2012, the airline said in a statement.

Emirates added that rising demand on the Dubai – Tokyo route has prompted the need for the current daily service to be operated by an A380 from July 1 2012.
