Emirates' $1899 Europe Special Provides 18 Options

Emirates Airline today launched special early-bird fares for travel from New Zealand to an unparalleled range of destinations in Europe.

The new fares, from $1899 per person return (exclusive of levies and taxes), will apply to 18 destinations in Europe more than any other special Europe fare currently on offer.

Emirates' manager for New Zealand, Chris Lethbridge, said: "We are pleased to present travellers here with exceptional options for their next holiday in Europe. This is made possible by Emirates' 28 weekly flights out of Auckland and Christchurch, and a strong route network in Europe connecting via Dubai.

"The other significant plus is the opportunity for a stay in Dubai going to or from Europe. Dubai is now classed as one of the world's top stopover points, with its great accommodation packages, shopping, beaches and desert safari experiences.

"When you look at all the above, plus the fact that we fly one of the most modern fleets in the world with award-winning service and inflight features, we believe our competitive offering will be hugely attractive."

The $1899 special fares are on sale until December 31, with travel to be started between January 1 and March 31 plus October (minimum stay seven days, maximum stay 12 months). Other special fares are on offer from Emirates until the end of the year for travel starting April 1 to May 31 plus September, and June 1 to August 31.

The 18 destinations are: London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow, Paris, Nice, Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Zurich, Vienna, Moscow, Rome, Milan, Athens, Istanbul, Larnaca, Malta.
