EmiratesEmirates Airline has relaunched its Business Class sale fares, and combined them with a refreshed ‘companion’ offer which brings savings to each additional passenger travelling on the same booking.

And, once again, Emirates is also running promotions from elsewhere in Europe that may interest even UK-based travellers. This time, Germany leads the way, with fares to selected destinations matched roughly Euro:Pound – and therefore up to 15% cheaper than UK prices.

Destinations Business Class Fares First Class Fares
Middle East from EUR 2,366 from EUR 3,566
Indian Ocean from EUR 2,342 from EUR 3,742
Asia from EUR 2,279 from EUR 3,679

Sydney £3,221 £3,121 £3,021 £2,921
Brisbane £3,224 £3,124 £3,024 £2,924

 

Bookings must be made by 28th February, with a 72hr minimum advance purchase requirement. For full details and to book, visit the Companion Fares page at emirates.com/uk.

However: Emirates Airline has also issued a promotional code which offers substantial discounts on selected First Class companion fares departing from Spain. To qualify, two passengers must travel together by 30th June 2013, and bookings must be made by 28th February.

Emirates fly from both Barcelona and Madrid, employing Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the routes to Dubai and featuring their First Class seat product. Passengers travelling onward from Dubai can select services operated by A380 and B777 aircraft fitted with Emirates First Class Suite.

The fares are (including conversion from xe.com with a 3% credit card exchange fee):

Destination First Class Fares per person GBP Equivalent
Dubai 3,006 € £2515
Bahrain 2,999 € £2510
Delhi 3,055 € £2560
Dhaka 3,026 € £2532
Narobi 3,020 € £2527
Johannesburg 3,039 € £2543
Maldives 3,003 € £2512
Seychelles 3,028 € £2533
Bangkok 3,052 € £2553
Singapore 3,060 € £2560
Auckland 4,512 € £3775
Sydney 4,520 € £3782

 

Commencing the longhaul journey from Spain clearly adds an extra flight into most travellers’ itineraries, however the opportunity to enjoy First Class service at these fares may still interest other European passengers – particularly those who are members of Emirates Skywards loyalty programme who will earn increased miles in First. Both Barcelona and Madrid are linked directly to many European cities, including some which don’t currently enjoy Emirates service. For passengers originating in those cities, a connecting flight would be required anyway.
