Emirates Offers Atlantis To Premium Travellers - Free

Premium class passengers travelling on Emirates Airline from New Zealand to Dubai, or points beyond, now have the opportunity to avail free accommodation at one of Dubai’s star new resort hotel attractions.

Emirates has partnered with Atlantis, a world of aquatic wonders and the flagship resort on man-made island Palm Jumeirah, in bringing together the special offer. Palm Jumeirah is linked to the Dubai mainland by a causeway.

Passengers from New Zealand flying first class to or via Dubai with Emirates on a return ticket can enjoy two complimentary nights at Atlantis, The Palm. Travellers in business class can stay one night free at the hotel.

In both cases, the stay is on a bed and breakfast basis and includes access to Aquaventure waterscape and The Lost Chambers, a maze of underwater halls and tunnels.

The offer is for new bookings and applies to journeys between October 4 and December 24 this year. Other conditions apply.

“This is an excellent chance for New Zealand travellers in premium classes to sample one of the outstanding new attractions offered by Dubai,” said Emirates’ manager New Zealand, Chris Lethbridge. “It will work very well with our latest online fares from Auckland to Europe, which cover the same period.”

To Heathrow, as an example, business class return is available online for $10,016 and first class from $12,730. The fares are inclusive of all levies, taxes and other charges.

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. Most services also have Emirates' award-winning 'ice' inflight system, providing up to 1,000 channels of information, communication and entertainment.
