Travellers are being offered cheap flights by Emirates to help bring expatriates back to their families for Ramadan.
People may be able to find cheap flights to Dubai offered by Emirates over the coming month as a result of a new promotion.
The airline revealed that it is offering up to a 20 per cent reduction on travel between 32 destinations across the world.
Khalid bel Jaflah, vice president commercial UAE at Emirates, highlighted how important it is for families to be together during Ramadan.
“The UAE is largely an expatriate community with family networks often spread around the globe. To help bring families together during the holy month Emirates has established these special fares,” he remarked.
Apart from certain ‘blackout periods’, the promotion applies to flights booked from now until August 20th for travel until September 30th.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, when believers must fast from sunrise to sundown.
This year, the religious occasion is expected to run from August 1st to 30th.
