ONE of the world’s leading airline Emirates has announced special fares for its Harare to Dubai route which also includes a free third piece of luggage (23kgs) and a one-month tourist visa to the UAE.

The cost of the ticket includes airport taxes,” said the company in a statement.
Besides its enthralling architecture, to its mesmerising shopping malls and stunning beaches, visitors to Dubai can enjoy some of the city’s must-see places like the Global Village multicultural festival park, and experience unforgettable adventures at Dubai’s world-class theme parks.
The parks boost over 100 thrilling rides and have diverse themes from Bollywood to Legoland, and are great fun for the whole family.
A trip to Dubai is not complete without a shopping spree. Shopping in Dubai is not just an activity; it is an experience. The world-famous Dubai mall has over 1,200 shops, a waterfall and an underground zoo.
Visitors can also go on a desert quest where they get the full experience of an Arabian desert. Desert activities include quad biking, camel rides and when hungry, a tasty traditional barbeque awaits.
The city also offers a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets.
Emirates Skywards, the airline’s award-winning loyalty program, allows its customers to earn and spend Miles with Emirates and flydubai, as well as its wide selection of partners.
The airline has also introduced an enriched offering called ‘My Family’ which allows family members to pool up to 100% of Skywards Miles earned on Emirates flights, and redeem rewards faster than before.
On all Emirates’ flights, customers can look forward to hours of entertainment on the award-winning in-flight entertainment system, ice, which offers over 3,000 channels of on-demand audio and visual entertainment, from the latest movies, music, audio books and games, as well as family friendly products and services for children, including complimentary toys, kids’ meals and movies, priority boarding for families and the use of free strollers at Dubai International Airport.
