Media Release 8 April 2005

Emirates Offers 'One Night In Bangkok' Stopover Bonus

To mark the launch of its new service through Bangkok starting May 2, Emirates Airline is offering one night's free accommodation in Bangkok for passengers travelling on the new flight from Auckland to anywhere on its network beyond the Thai capital.

Emirates' First and Business Class passengers taking the opportunity of a stopover will enjoy their complimentary one-night-in-Bangkok at the Shangri-La Hotel, consistently voted best in the world and a preferred choice for business and leisure travellers. In addition, First Class passengers will be treated to a range of luxuries in the Shangri-La's Horizon Club Room, including complimentary happy hour drinks and snacks, VIP check-in and check-out, private purser and 24-hour butler service, private lounge and extra business facilities, meeting rooms and internet access.

Travellers flying Emirates' Economy Class will have easy access to Bangkok's main attractions during their free one-night stay at the Holiday Inn Silom, which is conveniently located in the heart of the city's commercial, shopping and entertainment district.

This special offer from the Dubai-based international airline is valid for Economy, Business and First Class passengers on journeys from May 2 to June 30, 2005. The offer can only be availed once, either on the inbound or outbound leg of the journey.

Earlier this month, for travellers making Thailand their main destination, Emirates announced special round-trip fares from $777 between Auckland and Bangkok.

One of the world's fastest growing airlines, Emirates operates services to 78 cities in 55 countries in Europe (including direct flights to 19 destinations), North America, the Middle East, Africa, Indian subcontinent and Asia-Pacific. Over the past year it has begun services to Lagos, Accra, Glasgow, Shanghai, Vienna, New York, Christchurch and the Seychelles. Later in 2005, the airline will launch services to Seoul, Geneva and Hamburg.

Terms and conditions apply on the above offer. For further information please contact your local travel agent.
