Emirates has kicked off the new year by launching its global sale, to regain some air-travel momentum and, “inspire and encourage customers to reconnect with family and friends, or explore new destinations in the New Year.”
For example, Emirates’ promotional pricing includes all-inclusive Economy Class return tickets from Harare to Lusaka US$170, Harare to Dubai US$450 and from Harare to London US$810.
Business Class return tickets will be priced at US$1,899 from Harare to Dubai and US$2 930 from Harare to New York.
The fare offers expire in 13 days.
Bookings must be made for travel between 11 January 2021 to 15 June 2021, to qualify for promotional pricing. In its announcement, Emirates emphasized that customers can, “travel with peace of mind with the airline’s flexible booking options and multi-risk travel insurance, including COVID-19 cover with every flight.”
Emirates’ fare sale arrives on the heels of the unveiling of its new Premium Economy class product, which—along with enhancements and design refreshes—has been incorporated into its newest A380 aircraft. Emirates’ Premium Economy seating is also slated for installation on some of its Boeing 777X aircraft, which will join the fleet in 2023.
“The Emirates A380 is already one of the most sought-after travel experiences in the skies, and now we’ve made it even better,” Emirates Airline’s president, Sir Tim Clark, said in a statement. “While others cut back, Emirates is working hard to restore the products and services that we’ve had to suspend, or adjust, due to pandemic precautions, and introduce new offerings and enhancements. True to our ‘fly better’ promise, Emirates continues to invest to offer our customers the best possible experience.”
