The Eid Al Adha holiday is less than a month away, which means it’s time to organize and book your holiday trip, if you haven’t done it already. Hotel rooms and airfares will be more expensive around Eid, but you may find many discounted flights from UAE right now online. Emirates, for example, currently offers up to 15% savings in Business Class and 20% in Economy Class fares to selected destinations worldwide.
Eid Al Adha will be around 4th-5th October and many people in the UAE will enjoy a long non-working holiday. Traditionally, it is spent at home with the family, but most expats now prefer to travel to some distant place in Europe or in the Far East. If you’ve already decided where to spend the holiday, it’s time for finding the flight.
You can reserve and pay your airfare online at Qatar Airways website and if you do it by 30th September, you will get advantage of the limited-time deals on flights to select destinations. Travelers from Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah can enjoy a discounted round trip to Vienna, Istanbul, Munich, London, Singapore, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Tokyo, and many others. The promotion is valid for return Economy Class airfares and for stays from 4th September until 30th October, 2014 – perfect for your planned Eid Al Adha vacation.
