Emirates Passengers Across All Class Can Avail This Offer From December 1 

Emirate’s Dubai Connect Service offers transit passengers a free night in a hotel when they have a layover for 10 to 24 hours.

Passengers Need To Fly On Emirates Through Out The Journey To Avail The Offer

In terms of the service, it is not the first time that the airline is offering a service of this kind. The Dubai-based airline has offered the service in the pre-covid era and now to make travel convenient, it will resume the services next month. If you are looking forward to this deal, then you must know that the service can be only availed if you are travelling on two Emirates flights. People flying one section of the journey with a codeshare airline, unless it is Qantas, will not qualify. Besides this, flights must also be the best available connection for the specific journey. It means that travellers cannot opt to book a flight with a longer layover to get a free night in Dubai.
