GHANA - 26th December 2012 - Emirates, one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, is welcoming 2013 aboard by offering very attractive fares for quick-acting customers.

The special fares apply to more than 120 destinations across the Emirates’ network when booked between 26th December 2012 and 10th January 2013 - for travel from 18th January to 10th June 2013.*
“With our excellent on board product and a long list of exciting destinations - from Buenos Aires and San Francisco in the west to Tokyo and Auckland in the east – there are already many reasons to experience Emirates,” said Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President – Passenger Sales Worldwide. “Now, we are injecting even more value into Economy Class fares, while giving a warm welcome to 2013.

Emirates, now flying under the banner of “Hello Tomorrow,” operates an impressive, fuel-efficient fleet of 194 aircraft, including the world’s largest fleet of double-decker A380s.
Customers taking advantage of the special 2013 fares now have even more chance of flying on the airline’s flagship A380 with the introduction of a double daily A380 service to New York and Paris effective 1st January 2013.

Emirates also takes the worry out of doing a little shopping by offering Economy Class passengers a generous luggage allowance of 30kg.
