Dubai, Oct 22: Emirates Airline has announced a revision on a range of its Business and Economy Class fares, for tickets issued in the UAE, to more than a dozen popular destinations, including cities in India, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.
Reflecting the further softening of fuel prices, this latest move will see fares reduced by between seven to 35 per cent on selected Emirates flights, including Amman, Damascus, Bangkok, Mumbai, Kozhikode, Paris, Colombo, Cochin, Delhi, Frankfurt, Munich, Hong Kong, Hyderabad, Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram and Zurich.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Commercial Operations - Gulf, Middle East and Iran, said: “Demand for Emirates’ flights has remained robust, but we are glad to be able to introduce further fare revisions in tandem with the lowering fuel prices. We believe that our latest round of revisions would be welcomed by our customers, particularly in light of the increasingly challenging economic climate.
“Emirates is monitoring the situation closely. While we continue to provide a high-quality service and product, we are also working hard to keep our unit costs down so that we can keep on delivering the best value proposition to our customers.”
In August, Emirates announced its first fare revision on the back of lowering oil prices for tickets issued in Middle East and GCC markets to over 20 cities in Europe, Far East and the Middle East.
Based in Dubai, Emirates operates flights to 101 cities across six continents. On 26th October the airline will start non-stop services between Dubai and Los Angeles, three times a week. For more information on Emirates flights and fares, visit www.emirates.com
