The global pandemic, COVID-19, took the world for a spin and has caused a significant rise in parents’ concerns for children, stranded in different parts of the world for their studies. However, with Emirates introducing an exciting new deal, families can now be reunited together and students can also explore other parts of the world.
Let it be any excuse for a student to travel, Emirates has got it all covered! Student travellers can enjoy special discounts off Economy and Business class fares, additional baggage on top of Emirates’ generous standard allowance, and a free date change of their booking up until 7 days before travel.
In addition, the student’s family and friends can also take advantage of this unique offer, as long as the student accompanies them on one of the trip sectors.
Data from the UNESCO Institute of Statistics show that the figure of students opting to continue their further studies outside of their home country is on a rising trend as young people become savvier about their travel and education options.
Emirates proposes to be a global connector of people and places, and the airline lives up to what it says by launching this offer to encourage students to see more of the world and help them visit their families more often, with increased flexibility to amend their booking in case they have second thoughts on their travel plans.
Tickets must be booked by 31 October 2020, using the promotional code STUDENT and all tickets have a maximum stay validity of 12 months When students sign up to the Emirates Skywards loyalty programme, they can earn miles to redeem flights, upgrades and a range of exciting rewards.
In terms of health and safety, Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the well-being of all its passengers.
Passengers can further travel with confidence, as Emirates has committed to cover COVID-19 related medical expenses, free of cost, should they be diagnosed with COVID-19 during their travel while they are away from home.
