Emirates takes off for Brisbane with a special offer to passengers
Emirates, the United Arab Emirates (UAE)' international airline, launched its new daily service to Brisbane today when its first flight took off from Dubai with a delegation of senior management and media from four European countries on board.
Flights to Brisbane, like those to Sydney and Melbourne, continue on to Auckland. Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia, is Emirates’ 71st destination in 50 countries and its fourth gateway into Australia.
To celebrate the new service, Emirates is offering an incentive to passengers to travel First or Business Class to Brisbane - a free hotel stay or free car hire. Passengers booking First or Business Class between now and December 15 2003, have the option of free accommodation on bed and breakfast basis at the Sheraton Mirage Gold Coast Hotel or one week's free car rental.
Dubai-based Emirates Airline was established in 1985. The airline's fleet is comprised of 55 aircraft – a mix of Airbus A330-200s, Boeing 777-300s, 777-200s and 747-200/400Fs, with an average age of three years. Emirates’ latest aircraft, the super long-range Airbus A340-500, the first of eight on order, was recently delivered to the airline. — (menareport.com)
