Emirates is giving travellers from Zimbabwe the opportunity to fly better to Dubai with a special offer for Business Class and Economy Class passengers.

According to a statement, travellers from Zimbabwe planning a trip to Dubai can enjoy special fares on travel, in addition to excess baggage.

The airline said return fares in Economy Class starting from US$500 will include an additional piece of baggage and Business Class fares starting from US$2,215 would include an additional piece of baggage.

“Fares and extra baggage will help travellers from Harare make the best of their Dubai holiday so they can shop and pack – stress free.”

The offer is valid for travel to Dubai booked between November 2 and November 22 this year for outbound travel until January 31, 2021.

Dubai has grown to be a world class destination offering from sun-soaked beaches and heritage activities to world class hospitality and leisure facilities making it one of the most popular global destinations.

In 2019, the city welcomed 16.7 million visitors and hosted over hundreds of global meetings and exhibitions, as well as sports and entertainment events.

Dubai was one of the world’s first cities to obtain Safe Travels stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) – which endorses Dubai’s comprehensive and effective measures to ensure guest health and safety.

“Emirates’ booking policies offer customers flexibility and confidence to plan their travel. Customers who purchase an Emirates ticket for travel on or before 30 March 2021, can enjoy generous rebooking terms and options, if they have to change their travel plans due to unexpected flight or travel restrictions relating to COVID-19, or when they book a Flex or Flex plus fare.”

Emirates has also committed to cover COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, should passengers be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel while they are away from home.

“This cover is immediately effective for customers flying on Emirates until 31 December 2020, and is valid for 31 days from the moment they fly the first sector of their journey.

“This means Emirates customers can continue to benefit from the added assurance of this cover, even if they travel onwards to another city after arriving at their Emirates destination.”

 Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
