(eTN) – Emirates added Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro to their expanding route network, as was mentioned to this correspondent during the week from a regular source at the airline’s offices in Kampala.
“We are now offering connections to the two most important South American gateways of Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires and that is the start of sometime in the future covering all of that continent. Ugandans can now fly to Dubai, take a day or two for the annual shopping festival on the way to or from South America, and fly nonstop from Dubai to their final destination. We can now proudly say we cover the world for our Ugandan brothers and sisters, and there soon will be no point they cannot reach with Emirates,” the source said.
Meanwhile, on Friday night, the annual Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) kicked off, a major magnet for ticket sales on Emirates from around the world, bringing shopping addicts to the mega malls of Dubai. A major firework show was ringing in the new “season,” and while Dubai and the neighboring Emirates of Sharjah and Abu Dhabi, among others, always offers good value for money throughout the year, the DSF is simply a time of the year when deals make way for more and better deals.
“Sales are very good right now and Dubai is always a top destination no matter if on a limited or a big budget,” said the same source.
