Emirates Offers Hot Winter Fares To Longhaul Destinations

Emirates has released a range of special winter fares from Auckland and Christchurch to Europe, South Africa and the Indian sub-continent.

The fares to Europe start at $2,489 and the South Africa fares are from $2,499. Indian sub-continent fares are from $2,279. *

Fares are inclusive of all Emirates charges, but do not include non-airline ticketable taxes, surcharges and levies, which vary by destination.

Sales are until June 30, with departures at various fare levels from September 7 to December 15.

Emirates New Zealand manager Chris Lethbridge said: “These very attractive fares give New Zealand travellers the chance to visit favourite longhaul destinations before the full Christmas rush begins. They allow stays of 10 days to four months and a stopover in one direction without an additional charge.

“We think the New Zealand public will welcome these fares at this time.”

Emirates flies its wide-bodied aircraft four times daily from New Zealand to Dubai and beyond, via Australia. Passengers can enjoy Emirates’ award-winning services, sumptuous meals and the finest wines in First, Business and Economy class on all flights. All services also have Emirates' award-winning 'ice' inflight system, providing more than 600 channels of information, communication and entertainment.
