Emirates offering special Auckland-Bangkok A380 fares


Auckland travellers will have the opportunity to fly to Bangkok on a double-decker A380 for the first time when Emirates starts its service to the Thailand capital at the end of this month.

And it will launch the new route with special introductory fares from $999 Economy Class return.

Emirates will be operating five daily A380 flights from New Zealand from October 31, and among them will be its new Auckland- Dubai service via Sydney and Bangkok.

It will be the only service to Thailand from New Zealand featuring the flagship A380 aircraft and the only same-plane daily service from New Zealand to Bangkok.

Emirates will also be offering special fares to other popular points in Thailand – Phuket from $1,049 return, Chiang Mai from $1,099 return, and Koh Samui from $1,149 return. The connecting flights from the capital to these destinations will be by Bangkok Airways.

The introductory fares will be on sale from today only until October 17*.

Emirates Skywards members can also take advantage of the recently introduced Cash+Miles offering, which allows customers to book a seat on any Emirates flight, in any class, and pay with a combination of cash and Skywards Miles.

Passengers in all classes can enjoy the unparalleled quietness of the aircraft and the 12- time award-winning ice in-flight entertainment system with a choice of over 2,500 channels on-demand. Those travelling on the A380 can stay easily connected to family, friends and colleagues with up to two hours’ free onboard Wi-Fi.
