Emirates landing in Dubai Mall this weekend

DUBAI, U.A.E., 4 May 2016 – Emirates will be taking its iconic onboard experience to Dubai Mall this upcoming holiday weekend from 4-7 May, with an imaginative rendition of its A380 aircraft in the Star Atrium to offer unique on-ground activities for visitors and mall-goers alike.  

“My Emirates Experience” will be a fun-filled four day event recreating the onboard environment in an aircraft shaped space where visitors and mall-goers can engage with Emirates Cabin Crew, play interactive video games and puzzles and participate in destination competitions to win Emirates Skywards Miles, Emirates A380 simulator passes at Dubai Mall, and one of three Emirates Holidays packages for four people to Sri Lanka or Cebu. Visitors can also upload the photos they take at the stand directly onto their personal social media platforms.   

The airline will also be showcasing its world-renowned A380 Onboard Lounge.  Visitors can socialize and mingle on the ground at the onboard lounge, an experience which usually takes place at 40,000 feet, and can also take selfies and photos to share on their social media platforms.

Families will enjoy interacting with Emirates’ on-board toys. A special ‘’Fly With Me’ backdrop has been created with cut outs of Emirates’ four onboard animals, and Emirates Cabin Crew will take Polaroid photos as a keepsake from the experience. Lewis the Lion and Leila the Camel, two of Emirates’ onboard animals, will also be roaming around the stand and children will have the chance to take photos with them. 

Emirates’ on-ground activities will run from 4 May until 7 May at the Star Atrium on the lower ground level of Dubai Mall.
