Dubai: Emirates will offer special discounts to student travelers, in addition to higher baggage allowance and free booking date change up until seven days before travel, the airline said in a statement.
The deal “will help international students to see more of their family, and more of the world during the year,” Emirates said. The offer is also extended to family members and companions who accompany the student while travelling.
Millions of students go to colleges outside of their country to pursue higher education. Data from the UNESCO Institute for Statistics shows that the figure is on a rising trend as young people become more savvy about their travel and education options, Emirates said.
Tickets must be booked by October 31, 2020, the airline said, adding that all tickets will have a maximum stay validity of 12 months.
