Whoever said “opportunity doesn’t knock twice” had not heard of Emirates, the world’s leading airline, which has just unveiled another opportunity for travellers in Sri Lanka to see the world at a significant saving in cost.
A two-day Super Sale in Sri Lanka on Tuesday, 3rd and Wednesday 4th December offers Economy, Business and First Class travellers a chance to purchase tickets for travel with Emirates to popular destinations at up to 20 per cent less than standard fares.
Embracing the spirit of giving associated with the festive season, these special fares will be valid for travel between 13th January and 30th November 2020, enabling travellers to save on their air travel.

“For leisure travelers, the Super Sale can be thought of as an early New Year’s gift to oneself or a loved one, and it also presents an opportunity for students as well as business travellers to save on their travel costs in 2020 by booking early,” said Chandana de Silva, Emirates Area Manager for Sri Lanka and Maldives. “With volatile exchange rates, fuel price fluctuations and demand impacting fares, we are offering a way to plan ahead and be ahead of the game.”
Members of Emirates Skywards, the airline’s award-winning loyalty programme, can pay for bookings using a combination of cash and Skywards Miles, further reducing the cost of the ticket.
Passengers in all cabin classes enjoy the friendly service from Emirates’ multicultural cabin crew, meals prepared by gourmet chefs, and more than 4,500 channels of movies, TV programmes, music and podcasts, including channels in Sinhala and Tamil on ice, the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system.
