Emirates’ online booking facility allows passengers to make bookings at any time and from anywhere. Besides the convenience, there are also special on-line fares and periodic offers and opportunities to earn extra Skywards Miles by booking online. Additionally, a unique feature called ‘Miles Accelerator’ offers extra miles on specific routes on a month-to-month basis. As a result of these benefits, passengers who make use of the Emirates website can save on air travel purchases. They can also purchase additional baggage allowance at a 20% discount by making payment by credit cards, saving both money and time spent at check-in counters at the airport. The Emirates website also offers accommodation and car rental bookings as part of the online flight booking process, via the ‘Manage a Booking’ tool or as standalone reservations through the ‘Book a Hotel/Car’ tab, with the latter available even to those who do not book air travel with Emirates. A choice of more than 23,000 hotels in approximately 3,200 cities in 130 countries is available to those who book hotel accommodation via www.emirates.com/lk.
