DOHA: Emirates’ Kids Go Free offer is well into its successful second year with thousands of passengers from across the world taking advantage of the airlines’ innovative family offer.

Valid till September 30, two children under the age of 16 can stay, eat and play in Dubai for free, when travelling with two paying adults.

To date nearly 5,500 people globally have taken Emirates up on this offer to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of Dubai with their children travelling for free.

Saeed Khalifa bin Sulaiman, Emirates’ Manager Qatar said: “Families in Qatar still have the opportunity to take advantage of this exciting offer up until the end of September. Dubai is an excellent destination for those families looking to take a summer vacation close to home.”

He said the city offers an incredible range of family based activities only one hour by plane from Doha.

“Whether you are a family who likes an action packed vacation, or simply one relaxing in a resort, Dubai offers the best of both worlds,” Khalifa bin Sulaiman said.

Emirates has partnered with Dubai Tourism & Commerce Marketing (DTCM), over 80 hotels, The Dubai Mall, the Department of Residency, and local destination management companies, to offer families even more incentives and savings when they spend their summer in Dubai.

Emirates also offers five direct flights each day between Doha and Dubai and a total of 35 flights per week, allowing families to pick a flight most convenient for them.

The “Kids Go Free” offer gives families an unrivalled integrated destination experience, whereby two children up to the age of 16 can basically enjoy free flights on Emirates, tourist visa, accommodation, meals, rides on the Dubai metro, airport transfers, and access to numerous attractions in Dubai when accompanied by two paying adults. Families also get an attractive discount booklet at The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest.
