Emirates launches Zambia companion special

Emirates has made travelling for Zambian fliers all the more interesting and fun with the launch of its Companion Fare to destinations within its network. The special fares are aimed at encouraging more of Emirates’  ‘globalistas’ looking to travel in pairs or groups to make good on their resolutions to see the world and share experiences.

The fares cater for a minimum of two and maximum of nine passengers travelling together on all sectors and booked on the same booking reference. Bookings have to be made between February 4 to February 21, 2016 for travel from February 4 to June 30, 2016 for business and economy class flights. All-inclusive Business Class fares from Lusaka start at K22,920 to Mumbai, K18,645 to Dubai, K29,785 to London and K37,415 to New York; with Economy Class fares starting at K6,085 to Dubai, K9,565 to London, K7,070 to Mumbai and K11,030 to New York.

“Part of what makes travel special for most passengers is the chance to share their experience with their loved ones. With the Companion Fare, they can not only connect with the rest of the world at any of more than 140 Emirates Airline’s destinations but do so together,” said Emirates Country Manager for Zambia Thani Al Ansari.

Business travellers en route to global conferences and meetings can also take advantage of the special fares by making bookings for up to nine passengers. Passengers can further enjoy Emirates’ world class in-flight services aboard the larger Boeing 777-300 of First Class private suites with electronically operated doors to ensure privacy, flat bed, including a mini-bar and work desk, while Business Class features sleeperettes, and Economy Class comfortable and spacious seats. Across all cabins the aircraft is fitted with Emirates’ award-winning ice entertainment system, which offers customers over 2,000 channels of on-demand audio and visual entertainment, from the latest movies, TV shows, music, audio books and games.

Customers will continue to enjoy the famous on-board hospitality from Emirates multi-national cabin crew, including Zambian and Zimbabwean nationals, as well as gourmet meals and generous baggage allowances, with 50 kg for First Class, 40 kg for Business Class and 30 kg for Economy Class.

Travellers can travel to 140 destinations across six continents taking advantage of Emirate’s expanding network. Emirates offers excellent on board service from an international cabin crew who come from 130 nationalities and speak over 60 languages.  With lie-flat beds in Business Class, the largest in-seat screens in the world in Economy class at 13.3 inches and more than 2,000 channels of on-demand entertainment on the award-winning inflight entertainment system, ice Digital Widescreen, Emirates provides quality products and value for money.
