Dubai will be more affordable than ever this summer with the Emirates Airline global ‘Summer Smiles’ campaign. Running until 30th September, the promotion coincides with Dubai’s ‘Global Kids Go Free in Dubai’ campaign and Dubai Summer Surprises, when Dubai stores have summer sales.
Up to two children under age 12, traveling with an accompanying adult, are eligible to receive complimentary accommodation (minimum three night stay), meals in participating hotels, plus airfare discounted 50% off the adult fare. Families will have a choice of over 50 hotels and apartments in Dubai, ranging from two- to five-star, with city or beach locations, to meet every family’s need.
Also included are Meet & Assist service at the Dubai airport, airport transfers, free entry to a wide range of attractions, hotel room taxes and service charges. In addition, for guests who require visas to enter Dubai, Emirates will provide complimentary 96 hour visas for up to 2 children under the age of 12.
Emirates is partnering with the Dubai Mall to offer exclusive packages including access to the Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo, Sega Republic and Dubai Ice Rink at the facility. A complimentary book of discount vouchers for use at the Dubai Mall is also available when tickets are purchased on Emirates, making fun-filled days of excitement and adventure even more affordable for families.
The Summer Smiles package also includes free entrance activities for up to two children under the age of 12 at some of Dubai’s premiere attractions; including, the Bateaux Dhow Dinner Cruise, the Big Bus Tour, Wild Wadi Water Park, Aquaventure & Lost Chambers at Atlantis, Ski Dubai, Soccer Circus, iFLYDubai indoor skydiving, the Dubai Dolphinarium, and many more.
For golf enthusiasts, activities include special discounts and free offers at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club, The Address, the Montgomerie Dubai, and at Ernie Els’ signature golf course, The Els Club. With Summer Smiles it’s possible to tailor each trip to Dubai to the traveller’s specific interests – the only limitation will be trying to decide between the great selections.
“Dubai is the ultimate leisure destination for families, with so many affordable attractions for all ages,” said Russell Sheldon, Senior Vice President Network Passenger Sales Development, Emirates. “Our promotion offers incentives and savings for families to spend their summer vacation in Dubai. The journey begins onboard an Emirates flight, with special meals for children, plus more than 600 channels of entertainment including movies, television, audio and interactive games, and the fun continues the minute you touch down and begin experiencing Dubai.”
