About Emirates Business Class Flights To The UK & Europe

Emirates Business Class and First Class is offered from New Zealand, via Dubai, to the UK / Europe.  The Emirates experience begins at your front door with the Emirates Business Class Chauffeur delivering you to the airport (distance and location limits apply – we can provide details).  The direct flight between Auckland and Dubai was the original iconic route for Emirates, with services also available via Australia and Bali to Dubai. The Emirates flight from Christchurch flies via Australia and then on to Dubai.

Why Choose Emirates Business Class

Fine Travel clients considering Emirates Business Class Flights have appreciated knowing:

  • The full lie-flat Business Class seats onboard the A380 services from New Zealand and Australia take up the entire top floor of the aircraft.

  • Complimentary Emirates Business Class Chauffeur Service to selected airports (within a selected range) is included in your airfare.

  • Its extensive network from Dubai to the UK / Europe provides flexibility for comprehensive itineraries and Open Jaw Business Class options.

  • Emirates has a dedicated Business Class lounge at Auckland Airport.


Experience Business Class

Onboard the A380 the Business Class cabin is a 1 – 2 – 1 design with fully lie-flat seats and direct access to the aisle.  The two centre seats have an alternating configuration for couples (with a lower central divider for easier conversation) or individuals (providing greater privacy).  Unlike the diagonal “herringbone” Business Class cabin design offered by other airlines, the Emirates Business Class seats aboard the A380 are all forward facing. The design also affords greater privacy when sleeping.

Secure Specials with Fine Travel

Should you require any date changes, special requests (such as allowances for allergies) or a stopover, we can also arrange these for you, saving time working with Emirates’ call centre.

First Class

The Emirates First Class cabin onboard the A380 is contained in the exclusive forward area upstairs.  Each seat is enclosed in a suite, with a sliding door for even greater privacy.

The First Class experience is further enhanced by access to the onboard First Class bathroom, which includes a shower.  Each passenger is allocated a time to use the shower and to freshen up in the substantial bathroom.

First Class passengers enjoy a greater selection of premium cuisine, champagne, wines and spirits while onboard.

Companion and Mixed Class Specials

When releasing its specials, Emirates can include Companion and Mixed Business Class / Economy Class Specials.  Companion Specials provide for greater discounts when two or more people book and travel together in Business Class.  

The Mixed Class specials are pitched at a cheaper price point than full Business Class and allow passengers to fly Business Class on the long flight between Auckland and Dubai and then Economy Class between Dubai and the ultimate UK / Europe destination.

Finding Discounted Emirates Business Class Airfares

For its First Class, Business Class and Mixed Class airfares to the UK / Europe, Emirates releases specific fare classes which must be available on all flights to secure the cheapest airfares.  Through our experience selling Emirates, our comprehensive reservations system, we work with our clients to find the dates that the discounted airfares are available and help them integrate their Emirates flights into their itinerary.
