My Emirates Pass: The offer that turns the Emirates boarding pass into a membership card is back and has been extended this year giving customers even more chances to explore U.A.E. for less. Emirates’ customers flying to and through Dubai from January 1 to September 30, 2021 can take advantage of the exclusive offers by presenting their Emirates boarding pass and a valid form of identification at any of the participating outlets. The offer includes discounts in over 300 restaurants across the country and in over 35 spas in world-class hotels.

Flexibility and Assurance: Emirates' booking policies offer customers flexibility and confidence to plan their travel. Customers who purchase an Emirates ticket for travel on or before June 30, 2021, can enjoy generous rebooking terms and options, if they have to change their travel plans. Customers have options to change their travel dates or extend their ticket validity for two years. 

Travel With Greater Confidence: All Emirates customers can travel with greater confidence and peace of mind with the airline industry’s first multi-risk travel insurance and COVID-19 cover. This cover has been arranged by Emirates for all Emirates tickets purchased on or from December 1, 2020 (up to the end date of the program, as specified on emirates.com), at no additional charge to customers. In addition to COVID-19 medical cover, this cover through Emirates also has provisions for personal accidents during travel, winter sports cover, loss of personal belongings and trip disruptions due to unexpected air space closure, travel recommendations or advisories, similar to other multi-risk travel insurance products. Some limitations and exclusions apply.

Health and Safety: Emirates has implemented a comprehensive set of measures at every step of the customer journey to ensure the safety of its customers and employees on the ground and in the air, including the distribution of complimentary hygiene kits containing masks, gloves, hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes to all customers.
