Flying your kids from Dubai to Europe just for Dh1 may sound unrealistic, but Dubai-based carrier Flydubai is promising to give you a deal in the price of a vanilla ice cream cone at McDonald’s.

If you fly with kids from Dubai to one of Flydubai’s six destinations in Europe this summer, you get a chance to take your kids for just Dh1.

To avail of this offer you need to book before noon on Sunday, June 21, to fly between June 25 and August 31, 2015, excluding travel between July 16 and 24, 2015.

The offer is valid for return economy class flights from Dubai to Belgrade, Bratislava, Prague, Skopje, Sofia and Zagreb.

Note that the accompanying Dh1 child ticket can only be claimed when one full fare adult ticket is booked and paid for. Taxes and surcharges will, however, apply to the child ticket and must be paid at the time of booking, adding to the cost.

Once booked, if you do make any itinerary changes, the child will be charged at the standard available adult rate so be sure of your travel plans if you want to take advantage of the offer.
