Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ senior vice-president, commercial operations for Gulf, Middle East and Iran, said on Tuesday that the prices of the first, business and economy class tickets issued in the UAE to the destinations, including cities in India, China, the US, Europe, the GCC, the Middle East, Africa and Australia, have been revised.

“This is our third fare revision since October 2008, and this move is once again driven by the lowering of the fuel prices in the recent months. Emirates continues to offer competitive airfares across our international network.”

He, however, did not specify the percentage of reduction this time.

Kazim said although travel demand has slowed after the peak holiday season, Emirates’ convenient connections and high-quality service continue to attract customers seeking good value for money. “Our seat factors in the region remain strong, and we are expecting growth in some markets.”

Emirates last month announced that it would be adding flights to three cities — one flight each to Riyadh and Jeddah and two to Amman, — from February. These follow the airline’s recent increase of services to Damascus in December last year from nine flights a week to 11.
