Travellers in the Middle East will also see lower fares on Emirates flights to points in the GCC.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Commercial Operations - Gulf, Middle East and Iran, said: “We are glad to be able to revise some of our fares with the recent lowering of fuel prices. Although fuel prices have fallen gradually in recent weeks, it is still some 60% above the average price per barrel in 2007*. High fuel prices continue to be a big challenge for Emirates, and we are monitoring the situation closely."
