Emirates offers a special welcome to Dakar with free hotel stopover in Dubai

(lifePR) ( Dubai, )
Senegal is famous for its hospitality and now Emirates customers have another welcome reason to visit this friendly West African nation - a free hotel stay in Dubai to break their journey.

To celebrate the launch of its new route to Dakar on 1st September 2010, Emirates is offering First and Business Class passengers a complimentary stay at a leading hotel in Dubai, plus a free 96 hour visa when they book a return flight to the Senegalese capital.

First Class passengers will receive a free two night stay at the five star Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, while Business Class travellers will be offered a one night complimentary stay. The offer applies to return journeys taken by passengers travelling exclusively with Emirates between the 1st and the 30th of September.

Richard Vaughan, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commerical Operations Worldwide, said: "Senegal is a fascinating country which will soon become within easy reach of the Middle East, thanks to our new route to Dakar - the first direct service from the GCC.

"This attractive offer provides the perfect excuse for customers to return home to see family or friends, enjoy a business trip in style, or simply discover this vibrant and friendly country for themselves."

Dakar will be Emirates' fifth new route in 2010, following Tokyo on March 28th, Amsterdam on 1st May, Prague on 1st July and Madrid on 1st August. Dakar is also Emirates' third new African destination in less than 12 months, after Durban and Luanda joined the network in late 2009.

Starting 1st September 2010, Emirates will fly non-stop to Dakar five times a week on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The service will be operated by an Airbus A340-300 aircraft, offering a three-class configuration of 12 First Class, 42 Business and 213 Economy Class seats.

Emirates Flight 797 will depart Dubai at 09:55 and touch down at Dakar's Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport at 16:00hrs the same day. The return flight departs Dakar at 17:40, arriving in Dubai at 07:15 the following morning. The service connects seamlessly to key centres in the Middle East, the Indian Sub-continent, Asia and the Far East.

The free hotel stay promotion can be used on the inbound or outbound leg of trips starting or ending in Dakar.
