Emirates, one of the world’s fastest-growing airlines, says it is offering special fares to customers from Nigeria travelling to over 120 destinations on its networks.
The special fares, according to Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ executive vice president, Passenger Sales Worldwide, apply to more than 120 destinations across the airline’s network if booked between December 26, 2012, and January 10, 2013, for travel from January 18 to June 10, 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. Now, we are injecting even more value into Economy Class fares, while giving a warm welcome to 2013. We urge customers to move quickly to secure seats at the best price.
“The raft of savings means that passengers can fly, for example from Nigeria to other Middle East destinations for as little as $989 and to Dubai from $956.
“Prices to India and South East Asia start from $840 and $1,103, China and Japan start from $998, while passengers can get Australia and New Zealand tickets from $2,415. All the prices quoted are inclusive of taxes and fuel surcharges,” he says.
Emirates’ networks have grown rapidly in 2012, with the launch of 15 new destinations, bringing new countries, cultures and experiences for customers to explore.
