Emirates countdown to World Cup kick off

With 100 days to go until the whistle blows for the opening match of the football’s premier tournament, Emirates’ FIFA World Cup 2010™ Travel Packages have never been more accessible and attractive.

As an Official Tour Operator, Emirates will be bringing the world to South Africa for the FIFA World Cup™. Through the award-winning airline’s network of over 100 destinations across 62 countries, Emirates is offering seamless travel to three of the host cities, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban via our Dubai hub.

Currently on sale in 65 countries around the world, Emirates’ tailor-made FIFA World Cup Travel Packages are some of the most competitive on the market, offering flights, accommodation, ground transportation and match tickets.

More than 220 appointed tour operators and retail agents are selling the FIFA World Cup packagers on behalf of Emirates, in addition to fans being able to purchase them in selected markets from emirates.com.

Ahmed Khoory, Emirates’ Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations Gulf, Middle East and Iran, said: “Through Emirates’ packages, no matter where your team is playing be it Rustenburg or Cape Town or any of the other eight venues, you will be transported from your chosen Rustenburg Hotel or Capetown hotel to the match and back again, even if it is all the way across South Africa.


“If you have purchased our ‘Follow Your Team’ package and your team qualifies through the Group Stages, we will make sure you do not miss out on any of their matches in the round of 16, no matter where it is held.

“To support the football fans from around the world and ensure that they are able to be in South Africa, Emirates is offering some very special offers all of which can be found on emirates.com.”
