EMIRATES LAUNCHES SUMMER FARES AND NAMES ZURICH AS NEXT A380 DESTINATION
(Posted 06th June 2013)
Emirates, Dubai’s award winning airline, has just named Zurich as their next Airbus A380 destination, making the prospect of travelling to Switzerland’s banking city even more attractive.
The service will start in January 2014, still a while away, even though Emirates will until then continue to serve one of the world’s foremost banking hubs with double daily flights on B777-300ER aircraft.
Meanwhile has the airline also hit the East African market with fares as low as US Dollars 600 return, taxes included, to Dubai during the upcoming hot summer months, with equally hot deals on offer in the many malls across the metropolis – all fully airconditioned of course to make shopping a pleasure.
The offer dubbed ‘Hello Dubai’ runs until August 4th, 2013 and covers a round trip economy fare from Nairobi to Dubai and three -night accommodation on bed and breakfast basis. Other East African destinations will have similar packages on sale with immediate effect.
‘Dubai has been a favourite destination for Kenyan holiday-makers as well as business travellers over the years’ said Emirates Vice President for East Africa Khalid Bel Jaflah before adding: ‘The present offer is an opportunity for our valued Kenyan clients to experience Dubai at a very competitive rate whilst enjoying Emirates’ award winning product and service. Our ‘Hello Dubai’ campaign has been designed to allow our customers to explore this multi-faceted tourist destination which has something to offer every type of traveller, without breaking their wallets’.
With flights on Emirates, packages are tailored to include a full range of hotels in the city, in the desert or on the beach and also include other services such as meet-and-assist in Dubai, hotel airport transfers, buffet breakfast, taxes and service charges, amongst others. From iconic landmark hotels such the Burj Al Arab to a wide range of three star and four star hotel packages, visitors to Dubai can avail of a variety of attractive holiday offers.
Known as a city of contrasts, a city of superlatives and a city which truly never sleeps – from futuristic architecture to vibrant traditional culture and from world class tourism attractions like indoor skiing to outdoor waterparks to top rated restaurants, though traditional eating places and tasty take aways too are able to generate culinary sensations, Dubai is a place that caters to all types of travel. Offering everything a visitor could dream of – views from the world’s tallest tower, shopping at some of the largest malls in the region or dining options which will spoil anyone for choice – a trip to Dubai is a must for families, friends and individuals. Emirates flies double daily to Nairobi and to Dar es Salaam and daily to Entebbe. Time to travel, time to fly, time to go with Emirates and enjoy some extraordinary travel bargains this summer.
