Countries like the US and UK may still be struggling with huge coronavirus infection rates but some parts of the world are starting to see a bit of normality returning. One sign that Dubai is starting to see a return to normality is the welcome return of the ‘My Emirates Pass’ which sees an Emirates boarding pass turned into a discount coupon for spending at over 450 locations.

Emirates’ customers flying to and through Dubai between 1 January and 30 September 2021 can take advantage of a variety of exclusive offers by presenting their Emirates boarding pass and a valid form of ID at any of the participating outlets.

The ‘My Emirates Pass’ gives travelers up to 50% off in over 300 restaurants across the UAE and in over 35 spas at hotels around the country. The Emirates boarding pass also unlocks offers at many tourist attractions including Atlantis Aquaventure and At the Top Burj Khalifa.

A quick look at the list of participating locations shows that Accor properties in the UAE are well represented (e.g. the pass will get travelers 25% off drinks and dining at various outlets in the Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche), and you’ll also find good discounts on dining at properties like the Sheraton Dubai Mall (15% off), the Grand Hyatt Dubai (20% off), the Le Méridien Dubai (15% off) the JW Marquis Hotel Dubai (15% off) and the Hyatt Regency Dubai (20% off) as well as more discounts at various properties in the other Emirates.

The discounts available at retailers don’t appear to be particularly noteworthy, but with discounts of up to 30% available for various leisure activities (tours, balloon adventures, golf, entertainment parks, etc…) and with discounts of up to 30% available at various spas around the country (mostly hotel spas), there’s a lot of scope for savings if you’re spending a few days in the UAE.
