To celebrate the inaugural flight to Edinburgh on October 1, Emirates Airline is offering passengers discounted fares to the Scottish capital.

Travellers in the UAE can book special fares on all Economy and Business Class travel until September 10 for travel between October 1 and May 31 2019.

Emirates said Economy Class passengers can enjoy fares starting from AED2,495 and Business Class passengers can enjoy fares starting from AED13,165.

Edinburgh is the airline’s second destination in Scotland after Glasgow and its eighth in the United Kingdom.

The Scottish capital is the second most visited city in the UK by tourists with spectacular sites such as the city’s Old Town and New Town which are both UNESCO World Heritage Sites. It is also the first city in the world to be designated a UNESCO city of Literature.

The new daily service will be operated by an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER in a three class cabin configuration which offers 8 private suites in First Class, 42 lie flat seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy Class.
