Emirates has once more adapted to the ‘new normal’ and are now offering customers the chance to rebook their flights for up to three years.
Which is great news for anyone who’s had to make plans and then last-minute changes due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Customers who have a ticket issue before September 30, 2020 booked for travel before December 31, 2021 can now rebook for any time within 36 months or three years. This gives you an extra year’s flexibility on their previous policy.
If your ticket was issued after October 1, 2020, then you have two years to rebook the flight.
And, all ticket fees will be waived and any unused vouchers or tickets will be fully refunded.
Alternatively, if you can’t travel and don’t feel confident enough to rebook you can still request a refund from Emirates.
Now that’s what we call customer service!
Summer is coming as temperatures in Dubai close in on 40 degrees
They’re the words we all hate to read – but we can confirm that summer is coming with temperatures in Dubai coming close to 40 degrees this week.
The National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) in the UAE has released a weather report for the country warning that temperatures could soar to 38 degrees.
Temperatures are set to rise during the week rising to a high of 38 degrees on Saturday. So book in for your pool-side session in advance!
Summer officially starts on June 21 in Dubai. But as long-term residents will know, the mercury starts rising in April and May. Thankfully, the early summer is normally a dry heat. It’s the later summer humidity that turns it into a properly hot and swampy mess. Bleurgh!
