Manama, April 15, 2012
Emirates and MasterCard Worldwide have joined together to offer customers who book their travel through the airline’s website, between April 15 and June 13, the chance to win over $135,000 in prizes.
Over a period of 60 days, a total of 180 customers, from the UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Qatar, who book and pay for their flights online with their MasterCard credit or debit card will enter the daily draw to win back the value of their ticket, up to $750.
Each day three customers will be randomly selected from across the region, a statement from Emirates said.
Further extending the prize draw, Emirates will also give away two business class tickets each week during the competition period, valid for return travel to any one of the airline’s 123 destinations.
“Booking flights online with Emirates is both simple and convenient. Across the Middle East region we continue to see an exponential increase in our online bookings due to the ease and accessibility of our site,” said Reema Al Marzooqi, Emirates country manager, Bahrain. “Promotions such as this campaign with MasterCard serve to not only increase our online sales but reward our existing customers who book online.”
Eyad Al-Kourdi, senior business leader, vice president and country manager, UAE, MasterCard Worldwide, said: “At MasterCard, we believe that using a credit or debit card should be a rewarding experience. MasterCard cardholders travelling with Emirates will now benefit from even more exclusive privileges to make their vacations priceless this summer.”
Emirates currently flies to 123 destinations in 73 countries with a further four destinations including Ho Chi Minh City, Lisbon, Barcelona and Washington DC joining the network later this year.
The Emirates and MasterCard competition is open for bookings in all classes made through Emirates’ website. – TradeArabia News Service
