Business Class fares on sale include flights from the U.S. to Africa starting at $3,499 and to the Middle East for as low as $3,119.
Bookings must be made between January 4–18 on travel through May 20, 2021, to qualify for promotional pricing. In its announcement, Emirates emphasized that customers can, "travel with peace of mind with the airline's flexible booking options and multi-risk travel insurance, including COVID-19 cover with every flight." It also offers price-matching if you find the same flight accommodations aboard another carrier for at least $20 less than the Emirates rate.
Emirates’ fare sale arrives on the heels of the unveiling of its new Premium Economy class product, which—along with enhancements and design refreshes—has been incorporated into its newest A380 aircraft. Emirates’ Premium Economy seating is also slated for installation on some of its Boeing 777X aircraft, which will join the fleet in 2023.
"The Emirates A380 is already one of the most sought-after travel experiences in the skies, and now we've made it even better," Emirates Airline’s president, Sir Tim Clark, said in a statement . "While others cut back, Emirates is working hard to restore the products and services that we've had to suspend, or adjust, due to pandemic precautions, and introduce new offerings and enhancements. True to our ‘fly better’ promise, Emirates continues to invest to offer our customers the best possible experience."
