Two airline tickets for the price of one

Posted: 31-May-16 10:07

If you've been putting off a much-needed holiday now might be the best time of all to make your trip overseas. A Dubai-based airline just announced a deal that is too good to pass up. For the cost of one airline ticket, the airline is offering to fly two people from the United States to dozens of destinations all over the world.

Two airline tickets for the price of one

It’s no secret that Americans don’t take advantage of their yearly holiday time. Travel + Leisure magazine points to several sources in writing that while workers have the time to use they aren’t enjoying paid days off.

The magazine recently published an article from Assistant Digital Editor Melanie Lieberman who detailed how Emirates, a Dubai-based airline, planned to cash in this, by supplying an amazing deal.

According to Lieberman’s article, Emirates recently launched a campaign called “The Big Takeoff”, aimed at making American workers feel “happier (and) well rested”. As part of the deal, the airline offered a companion fare sale, providing two economy class plane tickets to dozens of different locations around the globe for the price of one.

Travellers had until 11:59pm on 26 May to purchase the deal, which Lieberman wrote started at $999 for two airline tickets, or just $499.50 per person. The article continued by describing a choice of flights departing from 10 major U.S. hubs, including Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City, and arriving in 81 different countries all around the world.

Flyers had to purchase travel between 15 July and 8 December of this year, or 9 January through 10 April of next year, depending on where they were headed. The writer notes the best deals she found included one from New York City to Milan, Italy for a total of $999 starting 20 August, plus one from Washington D.C. to Bangkok totalling $1,649 for two people. Another option she pointed out was the $1,249 deal from any U.S. gateway to Dubai.

Lieberman adds that the deal was not for solo travellers, but as long as the airline tickets were purchased together, it did not matter whether people brought along a parent, sibling, friend or a spouse.

For those who missed out on the travel deal this time, the writer notes Emirates has another major deal that doesn’t end until 30 September. This one is a social media sweepstakes, she says, offering two winners the chance to enjoy a free five-day excursion to Dubai, including a luxury hotel stay and a safari.
