The annual DSF, renowned for its incredible shopping deals, headline-grabbing raffle draws and all-round family entertainment will be held from 15th January to 15th February, infusing the entire city of Dubai with a carnival-like atmosphere.

Keith Longstaff, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President - Commercial Operations Worldwide said: “Emirates has been a proud sponsor of the DSF since its inception 13 years ago, as part of the airline’s mission to promote Dubai as an international destination. As official airline for DSF, Emirates actively promotes the event across our global network to encourage travellers to come to Dubai during the DSF for a wonderful holiday experience. Our DSF packages have always been very popular, and we believe that this year, Emirates’ packages will continue to attract customers seeking real value-for-money holiday deals.”


Emirates’ special DSF packages, valid for the duration of the festival, start from as little as US$55 per person per night on a twin sharing basis and provide customers with a choice of accommodation from a range of 20 select properties. The price includes breakfast, transfers between Dubai International Airport and the hotel by chauffeur-driven car, personalized meet-and-assist upon arrival, and 24-hour emergency assistance from Emirates Holidays. Airfare is not included.

Departure is facilitated with an additional 10 kg free baggage allowance on the return or onward flights from Dubai. Stopover charges are waived for onward-bound passengers.


The packages must be booked for a minimum of three nights with the option to extend.
