Emirates offers 280 hotel stopovers


Emirates passengers are being offered more than 280 unbeatable hotel offers in 74 cities around the world, thanks to the airline's new worldwide stopover programme for 2001/2002.

Featuring 12 Dubai hotels for the fist time this year, including the landmark Burj Al Arab property, the programme offers carefully selected 3,4 and 5 star hotels in locations as far apart as San Francisco and Seoul.

Accommodation from as little at $14 per person per night can be booked for any length of time through most major travel agencies, on purchase and booking of any Emirates flight irrespective of class of travel, the airline said in a statement.

All packages must have been pre-booked, confirmed and fully paid for prior to the passenger's departure to ensure validity and passengers will be issued with a booking reference and confirmation on settlement, to ensure ease of check-in at the chosen hotel.

Once paid for, Emirates guarantees that no additional charges, regardless of changes in exchange rates, will be levied, it said. Published rates are based on a twin-sharing basis.

The stopovers will be available from October 1 through all Emirates offices
