Emirates Heads to Lusaka Shopping Malls
Two tickets to Dubai on offer in weekend prize draw
Emirates, which flies daily direct from Lusaka to Dubai, will be on the ground meeting shoppers in Lusaka this weekend and next to share the excitement of flying across the airline’s global network and making a stopover in Dubai.
Visitors to Levy Junction on March 22 and 23, and to Manda Hill on March 29 and 30, stand a chance of winning two Economy Class tickets to Dubai with the airline’s raffle draw.
Entrants will be asked to answer three simple questions about the airline, and their answers will be entered into a prize draw for the tickets.
The Emirates team will also be talking about what Dubai has to offer as a leading leisure and business destination that has something to offer everyone.
They will also explain the benefits of the airline’s Skywards frequent flyer programme, which offers lounge, ticket and shopping benefits. Visitors to the stand will be able to sign up for Skywards on the spot, as well as book tickets for travel they are planning.
Joining Emirates Skywards is free and members receive benefits every time they fly. There are four membership tiers – Blue, Silver, Gold and Platinum. Benefits for Skywards members include travel and lifestyle rewards, priority check-in, lounge access, extra baggage allowance and bonus Miles, depending on the membership tier.
Members earn Skywards Miles when they fly on Emirates and partner airlines and through a wide range of leisure and lifestyle partners. Skywards Miles can then be redeemed for a range of rewards such as flights on Emirates and other partner airlines including Qantas, easyJet, TAP, JetBlue and Alaska Airlines, and for flight upgrades, hotel accommodation, excursions with Arabian Adventures, and car rentals.
Miles can be used for tickets to major sporting event and concerts. Members can also choose to donate their Miles to a range of charity partners including The Emirates Airline Foundation and Sightsavers. Redemption opportunities are consistently being expanded.
