In the slipstream of recently announced half year profits of US$ 575 million, Emirates is driving forward by offering attractive prices on economy fares over a 10-day period.

The special network-wide promotion launches Friday 23 November and runs to 2 December for travel between 1 February and 30 June 2013. Customers are being encouraged to plan ahead and book early to enjoy the greatest reductions.

"Emirates is already known for providing superb value for money. This network-wide initiative pushes the value bar a notch higher, making it even more attractive to embark on that trip of a lifetime, visit a relative or friend, or explore a new market for business," said Thierry Antinori, Emirates' Executive Vice President, Passenger Sales Worldwide.

The raft of savings mean that passengers can fly, for example, from Malta to other Emirates destinations, for as little as €179 to Cyprus. Prices to Hong Kong start at €802, Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou start at €812, fares to Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban begin at €885, Manila can be visited from €907, while fares to Melbourne start at €999. Prices include airport taxes and fuel surcharge and local terms and conditions apply.

In addition, Emirates is currently offering a special fare to Cyprus at €179 per person for two passengers travelling together within the same booking. Reservations and ticketing must be made by 31 January 2013 for travel until the 31 May 2013.

Emirates operates flights to 126 destinations in 74 countries and 2012 has seen a burst of new destination activity. So far this calendar year, Emirates has started services to Dublin, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dallas Fort Worth, Seattle, Lusaka, Harare, Ho Chi Minh City, Barcelona, Lisbon, Washington DC and Adelaide. Still to come in 2012 are Lyon and Phuket. Warsaw and Algiers will follow in the months to come.

Emirates, winner of more than 500 awards for products and service, most recently picked up Airline of the Year at the Arabian Business Achievement Awards in Dubai and won the prestigious Airline of the Year 2011 award by Air Transport World.

Aboard modern aircraft, gourmet-chef-prepared meals are served in all cabin classes by highly trained, multi-national and multi-lingual cabin crew. The airline provides dedicated ice, Emirates' award winning entertainment system, offering up to 1,400 channels of on-demand entertainment in every seat.

Luggage allowances are amongst the most generous in the industry with 30kg of check-in baggage permitted in Economy. 

Emirates, now flying under the "Hello Tomorrow" banner, operates a fleet of 188 aircraft, including the world's largest fleet of Boeing 777s and Airbus A380s, the airline's giant, but environmentally sensitive flagship aircraft.
