For many who haven’t yet ventured out of Dubai because of the soaring air ticket prices, here’s some good news.
Emirates airline and Air Arabia have special summer travel offers for families.
The Emirates offer promises to reward family bookings with 100 per cent Skywards miles for every “family bonus member” in the booking.
“For every family bonus member in your booking, you’ll get 100 per cent of the Skywards miles instead of the usual 20 per cent,” the fine print reads.
“This means, if a family of two adults and two children travel to London on Economy Class Saver fares, you would earn at least 8,400 skywards miles to your account.”
The bookings, the airline details, should be made by August 9, for travel until September.
Air Arabia has flagged special ‘fare family’ promotion, where passengers can “choose between Promo fare, Flexi fare, Smart fare, Saver fare or Super fare”.
The promo fare is no-frills, with price only covering the flight, while the flexi fare allows for one-free modification and cancellation. The smart fare allows one-free modification, cancellation, seat in front/exit row and quick check-in or exit.
The super fare offers all four, plus meals and 40kg checked baggage.
The saver fare covers the first two, and 20kg or 30kg checked baggage, seat from row 5 onwards and one sandwich/hot meal and water.
