Emirates’ sensational ‘Cash + Miles’ offer in Sri Lanka has been extended and expanded with more destinations in response to popular demand, the award-winning airline announced this week.
Valid for Sri Lanka-resident members of Skywards, the frequent flyer programme of Emirates, the offer now enables travellers to save on fares to nine popular destinations -- triple that of the original offer -- by paying part of the fare with accumulated Skywards Miles.
Extended for bookings made between October 25 and November 30, 2012 on all three classes of travel, this exciting offer is applicable for outward bound travel before December 10, 2012, to London (Heathrow), Dubai, Frankfurt, Milan, Rome, Venice, Paris, Singapore and Malé.
All existing members of Skywards or passengers who become members of the programme before November 30 are eligible to purchase tickets under this offer.
“The savings generated by this offer are significant and Skywards members have an opportunity to utilise accumulated Skywards Miles which do not yet add up to the amount needed for a full ticket,” said Emirates Sales Manager in Sri Lanka Devika Ellepola.
“The positive response we received for the Cash plus Miles promotion which ended in mid-October prompted an extension and the addition of more destinations.” Under the terms of the offer, a Business Class return ticket to London will cost Rs.208,000 and 16,000 Skywards Miles, while an Economy Class return to the same destination can be purchased for Rs.65,600 plus 12,000 Skywards Miles.
To Paris, a Business Class return ticket is priced at Rs.176,000 plus 16,000 Skywards Miles. On Economy Class, a passenger will pay just Rs.69,600 and 12,000 Skywards Miles.
The offer for Frankfurt is Rs.163,900 plus 16,000 Skywards Miles for a Business Class return and Rs.69,600 and 12,000 Skywards Miles on Economy Class. All cash prices quoted are exclusive of taxes.
The Cash + Miles offer is only applicable for tickets purchased at the Emirates office in Colombo and is not available for online bookings.
The winner of more than 500 international awards, Emirates operates 21 flights a week from Colombo to Dubai, 14 of them direct and seven via Male, offering First, Business and Economy Class services. The airline also operates daily flights from Colombo to Singapore. The Emirates route network now extends to 126 destinations in 74 countries.
