Emirates Celebrates Anniversary With Attractive Fare Offers

Emirates Airline is celebrating its first anniversary of services to New Zealand with a range of special fares that offer significant savings to Europe, Australia and Dubai.

The Dubai-based international airline, which has three flights a day from Auckland and three a week from Christchurch, will offer a special return economy class fare of $1899 from Auckland and Christchurch to its 20 destinations in Europe. In addition, from Auckland it will have a special business class fare of $5999 and offer first class at $8999.

For travellers going across the Tasman, Emirates is offering special fares from Auckland and Christchurch for two people travelling together ? the first fare will cost $399 return and the second will be only $199.

And from Auckland or Christchurch to Dubai will cost only $1200 return economy class, or $4100 return business class.

Emirates flies from Auckland to Sydney, Melbourne and Christchurch, as well as Singapore and Dubai and beyond. From Christchurch, the airline flies via Melbourne to Dubai and beyond ? the current three services a week out of Christchurch will be doubled from August 15.

Various seasonality dates, flights and other conditions apply to the special fares.

Emirates' New Zealand manager Chris Lethbridge said: "We have had a very busy and successful first year operating into New Zealand, with services expanding and two major sponsorships ? the Holden New Zealand Open golf and Emirates Team New Zealand yachting syndicate. We think it is very much worth celebrating the support we have had in our first year by giving the public the chance to experience Emirates' renowned quality service at very attractive fares."
