Emirates To Offer Free Stay For Passengers Who Transit For More Than 10 Hours




Dubai -- Travellers with Emirates airline transiting in Dubai can claim a free stay if they have a long stopover in the city.


Emirate’s Dubai Connect Service offers transit passengers a free night in a hotel when they have a layover for 10 to 24 hours. This deal is that flyers across Economy, Business and First Class can avail the offer. And that comes with free meal, transfers to and from the airport, and help to obtain a visit visa, if required, to enter the UAE.


For the hotels, travellers will stay at the four-star Copthorne Hotel Dubai or the five-star Le Meridien Dubai Hotel & Conference Centre. Emirates may also allocate travellers to alternative accommodation. People travelling to a destination that requires a PCR test for Covid-19 on arrival cannot book the Dubai Connect service. Instead, Business and First Class passengers will be given a reservation at Dubai International Hotel at Dubai Airport. However, it all depends on availability. Or else, they will have the access to Emirates’ Dubai Connect airport lounge.


Economy passengers who are unable to book the Dubai Connect service will be given access to this lounge. They can use the facilities for eating, drinking and relaxing there.
