Emirates launches Dubai stopover program in Canada

Jun 22, 2011

TORONTO, Canada - Emirates Airline announced today the launch of a brand new travel program available for the first time in Canada. The new initiative, Emirates Dubai Stopover Program, is an exceptional hotel and sightseeing package offered as a way to introduce Emirates passengers to Dubai; a world-class tourist destination with something for every type of traveler.

"The Dubai Stopover Program allows visitors to explore one of the world's great cities before their holidays even begin," said Don McWilliam Manager Canada, Emirates Airline. McWilliam notes that Canadians traveling to Dubai with Emirates do so aboard the world's most technologically advanced aircraft. "The Emirates A380 offers passengers an unparalleled in-flight experience and degree of luxury. We wanted to extend this world-class service to our Canadian customers beyond our aircraft, and the Dubai Stopover Program allows us to do just that," he remarked.

Packages start from as little as $39 CAD per person per night with passengers choosing from a full range of hotels and apartments in the city or on the beach, self-catered to six-star luxury. Hotels include Dubai's famous desert conservation reserve, the Al Maha Resort & Spa; the incredible aquatic wonder, Atlantis The Palm; and Raffles Dubai, a stunning and lavish pyramid-shaped hotel located in the heart of the city, to name just a few. The Dubai Stopover package includes specialized UAE visa service via Emirates Airline's fulfilment centre, personalized meet-and-assist in Dubai, including quick and efficient VIP escort through Dubai airport stations upon arrival, hotel transfers, buffet breakfast, taxes and service charges.

Kompas Express has been appointed by Emirates as the dedicated provider of the Dubai Stopover Package for Canada and is proud to now offer customers this great product.

Kompas Express President, Robert Zuzek is thrilled to partner with Emirates in this unique new offering. "We are delighted to be working with Emirates to make Dubai a more accessible travel destination for Canadians. It is truly a fascinating and dynamic city that deserves to be showcased,"said Zuzek.

Dubai Stopover customers receive a free Welcome Pack upon arrival, which includes a Dubai Mall privilege discount booklet, offering discounts at retail and entertainment outlets in one of the world's largest malls, 24-hour contact numbers, postcards and much more.

The Dubai Stopover offer is available to all Emirates passengers and combinable with all fares. It is not restricted to any specific class of travel.

Passengers on Emirates may take advantage of a stopover package on both the inbound or outbound leg of their journey, offering two opportunities to experience the hospitality and vibrancy of Dubai, the proud home of Emirates Airline.
