Emirates Rewards Early-Bookers With Bonus Chance

Emirates has introduced its special 2013 fares for early-bookers from New Zealand to Europe with an added potential bonus.

The airline, which flies to 33 destinations in Europe with direct connections at its Dubai hub from its New Zealand flights, is running a promotion that gives economy class and business class ticket-buyers to Europe the chance to win back the value of their ticket plus one companion ticket.

To enter the prize draw, Emirates customers must go to the website www.emirates.com/nz/win to complete online registration.

Like the sale of special early-booker fares, the competition runs from now until March 13. The value of the “win back” prize is a maximum of $7,000. Various conditions of entry apply.

Examples of the special fares from Auckland or Christchurch include Warsaw from $2,249 economy return (business class $9,649), Dublin from $2,419 economy return (business class $8,759), Barcelona or Copenhagen from $2,429 economy return (business class $8,779) and London from $2,639 economy return (business class $9,169).

The fares are inclusive of all taxes. Various travel periods apply.

Emirates has also brought in a special first class offer for single travellers and those with companions to its Europe destinations, on sale until February 18. The companion offer applies to a minimum of two people travelling together, with departures between February 1 and November 30.

Return fare examples (from Auckland and Christchurch) are Barcelona for $11,989 single traveller (companion offer $10,719 per person), Manchester $12,339 (companion offer $11,069 per person), London $12,369 (companion offer $11,099 per person), Paris $12,089 (companion offer $10,819 per person), Rome $11,999 (companion offer $10,729 per person).

Emirates flies its modern wide-bodied jets four times daily from New Zealand to Dubai and beyond via Australia.
