Emirates sponsor Dubai Duty Free Irish Open

Emirates is one of the world’s largest international airlines connecting customers to more than 150 destinations across six continents via Dubai with its modern fleet of Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 aircraft.

Emirates has a long-standing commitment to sports and sponsors a wide range of global and regional sporting events, partnering with more than 15 golfing tournaments including the European tour, which Emirates has now supported for over 10 years. Through its sponsorship programme and support for tournaments such as the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Emirates inspires and connects sports fans from around the world to their passion.

In keeping with its ‘Fly Better’ promise, Emirates offers its customers a superior and safe travel experience.  From the fully enclosed First Class Gamechanger suites on its Boeing 777-300ER aircraft to the iconic Onboard Lounge and inflight Shower Spa on its Airbus A380s, from its award-winning inflight entertainment system with over 4500 channels to delicious meals and beverages offered across every cabin class, passengers can enjoy a world class experience with Emirates.

To ensure a safe and stress free travel experience, Emirates has implemented the latest health and safety measures throughout the customer journey. The airline was also a first mover in the industry when it introduced free COVID-19 cover to help customers travel with more confidence. Emirates expanded this to offer the airline’s industry first, multi-risk travel insurance and COVID-19 cover. This generous cover is offered by Emirates on all tickets at no cost to customers. In addition to COVID-19 medical cover, the cover also accounts for personal accidents during travel, winter sports cover, loss of personal belongings, and trip disruptions due to unexpected air space closure, travel recommendations or advisories, and other circumstances.

Fans of golf can travel from Dublin on Emirates’ current schedule of four weekly to the airline’s hub in Dubai or beyond.

Dubai is one of the most sought-after travel destinations in the world and boasts world class golf courses and year-round sunshine. The city has also undertaken comprehensive measures to ensure the health and safety of visitors as well as citizens and residents, including the large Irish ex-pat community in Dubai. The UAE is also one of the world leaders in the roll out of its COVID-19 vaccination programme. Visitors can also experience adventure in the desert, hit the beaches for water sports or participate in one of the many heritage activities that Dubai has to offer.  

Customers can also make use of a wide array of holiday package options to Dubai or other destinations across Asia, Africa or the Indian Ocean from Emirates Holidays, the tour-operating arm of Emirates airline.
