Competition: Think Dubai, Fly Qantas

June 5, 2014 by Elle Croft

This competition is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered; we’re very pleased to announce that the lucky winner of 2 return economy flights to Dubai is @SamuelSWaters – congratulations Samuel!

When you hear the word ‘Dubai’, what springs to mind?

Do the words ‘sun’, ‘beach’ and ‘heat’ immediately shimmer in your imagination like a desert mirage? For most holiday goers, these are the three most important elements to guarantee a successful holiday – but there are plenty of other things like culture, luxury, shopping and adventure that complete the package.

Dubai has the lot, and we’ve teamed up with Qantas to give away return economy flights to Dubai for two people! All you need to do is answer our three fun quiz questions for the chance to win. Read on to discover more about this destination and how you could win flights there on the award-winning Qantas A380.

Find Question 1, Question 2 and Question 3.

Dubai is bound to tick all of your holiday boxes, with year round warm temperatures and sunshine, beaches side-by-side with an ultra-modern city, luxury, culture, shopping and adventure all within easy reach. And when you fly there with Qantas, your holiday will start the moment you board their award-winning A380 aircraft.

It’s been a year since Qantas first began flying to the enchanting city of Dubai, and it’s easy to see why this route is proving so popular. Dubai is so much more than an average beach destination, with something on offer for everyone, from desert adventures to luxury spas and plenty in between.

It doesn’t matter whether you have a week to truly explore this destination, or just a long weekend to get a taste of Dubai, your itinerary can be as full or relaxed as you like. And with two flights each day from London, Qantas will get you there and back in style and on your schedule (check out these 3 and 5 night holidays flying with Qantas, starting from just £499pp). From 21 July, Qantas is pleased to offer an early afternoon departure to Dubai, along with the evening departure, meaning you truly can choose when suits you.

Book your flight with Qantas and you can choose from four travel classes on the A380. This aircraft has won a number of awards, and is recognised for burning 17% less fuel per seat than today’s largest jets and being 50% quieter during take-off. All of this means that you can arrive in Dubai ready to hit the beach, the shops, the flood-lit golf course…or whatever takes your fancy.

How you can win flights to Dubai with Qantas:

The competition begins tomorrow (Friday June 6th) and we’ll be asking a question about Qantas and Dubai every two days on the blog. You’ll need to tweet us the answer to the quiz question to win, using the tweet button that we’ll provide.
