Emirates is giving 500 UAE residents a free flight

Emirates Airlines has devised a novel way to celebrate National Day and all the different nationalities that currently reside within the UAE.

The company has decided to invite residents to apply for a seat onboard a special National Day flight, which will depart from Dubai airport on 29 November.

The flight, EK2019, will take to the skies for approximately one-and-a-half hours, and the A380 commissioned for the journey will be decorated with a bespoke "Year of Tolerance" design on its exterior. 

 

"Much like the UAE, which is home to 200 nationalities, Emirates employs over 160 nationalities and draws strength from the diversity and shared values that brings its employees together," it added in a statement.

  • Those interested in applying must do so by 19 November on the Emirates website. Only those resident in the UAE can apply.
