Richard Vaughan, Emirates’ Senior Vice President East Asia and Australasia Commercial Operations said: “Beijing is destined to play a crucial role on Emirates’ strategic route map. We are delighted to launch services to the city, and we want our passengers to share in our excitement with this range of splendid deals.”

Emirates’ passengers based across its network travelling to the city in First Class are entitled to two nights’ and Business Class passengers to one night’s complimentary stay at the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel in the Chinese capital. Both deals offer passengers a deluxe room, on a single or double occupancy basis, and are valid from September 1 to November 30 this year.

Economy Class passengers in the UAE can look forward to an exceptional introductory fare of Dh1,800 for a Dubai-Beijing round trip, exclusive of taxes, valid for travel until September 30. This special fare is available through travel agents, and Emirates’ web site, call centres, and travel hubs in the UAE.

In addition, UAE-based passengers who book their Dubai-Beijing tickets online in any class — Economy, Business or First Class — could be one of four lucky ones to win back the entire value of their ticket. Winners will be picked at weekly raffle draws on September 8, 15, 22 and 29. All passengers who book online and pay by September 30 qualify directly for the draw.

Likewise, Skywards, the frequent flyer programme for Emirates and SriLankan, have announced special Cash-plus-Miles offers. Members can travel from Dubai to Beijing in Economy Class by redeeming 7,000 Miles and paying Dh 1,499; Business Class with 8,000 Miles and Dh 4,999; and First Class for 11,000 Miles and Dh7,999.
