First Class Offer For Business Class Travellers

Emirates' First Class Offer For Business Class Travellers

Emirates Airline is offering a first-class experience for a business class price on all of its four daily services to Australian destinations.

The new $985 return offer is for business class travel but with an upgrade to first class on the outward leg.

Emirates' New Zealand manager Chris Lethbridge said: "We wanted to give as many customers as possible a chance to experience the famous Emirates first class product, and this offer provides that as well as our normal business class in the one trip. It represents great value for money."

Emirates flies daily from Auckland to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane and daily from Christchurch to Sydney, and the transTasman offer applies to all four services. From Australia, Emirates connects New Zealand travellers to Dubai and onward to destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

The offer is valid for ticket sales up to 15 August and outbound travel must be undertaken by the end of November. The first class upgrade is subject to availability.

The fare includes fuel surcharges, but not airport taxes and other levies, which will amount to up to $107, depending on the destination.
