Emirates revises UAE fares


Dubai, U.A.E., 27th January 2009 – Emirates Airline has revised its fares for tickets issued in UAE on its First, Business and Economy Class fares to 85 destinations, including cities in India, China, US, Europe, GCC, Middle East, Africa and Australia. The fares are valid for booking until 15th February and for travel until 31st May.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates' Senior Vice President Commercial Operations - Gulf, Middle East & Iran said, "This is our third fare revision since October 2008, and this move is once again driven by the lowering of fuel prices in recent months. Emirates continues to offer competitive airfares across our international network. Although travel demand has slowed after the peak holiday season, our convenient connections and high-quality service continue to attract customers seeking good value for money. Our seat factors in the region remain strong, and we are expecting growth in some markets."
Emirates last month announced that it would be adding flights to three cities in the region – one additional flight to Riyadh, two additional flights to Amman, and one additional flight to Jeddah starting February 2009. These additions follow the airline’s recent increase of services to Damascus in December, from nine flights a week to 11. Today, Emirates serves 14 cities in the Middle East with nearly 180 flights per week, offering the best connectivity in the region.
With a fleet of 127 modern, wide-bodied aircraft, the airline currently flies to 101 destinations in six continents, from its international hub of Dubai. The carrier offers First and Business class passengers a complimentary personal airport transfer in a chauffeur-driven car from home or hotel to the airport, and on arrival, to their ultimate destination in 43 destinations.
