ITTN understands that there was intense competition for this post – indeed, Emirates was inundated with applications for all the positions advertised. This reflects not only the current state of the travel industry in Ireland but also the high profile and prestigious reputation enjoyed by Emirates.

Emirates will commence a daily service between Dublin and Dubai on 9th January 2012 using an Airbus A330-200 offering First, Business and Economy class. The flight will leave Dubai at 07.00 and arrive in Dublin at 11.30. The return flight will leave Dublin at 12.55 and arrive in Dubai at 00.25 the next day.

Earlybird return fares inclusive of tax from Dublin to a range of worldwide destinations include Dubai from €505; Durban €689; Mumbai €445, Kochi €499, and Perth €905. Travel agents can double their commission to 10% for bookings made in November and December 2011 if they register at bonuscommission@emirates.com by Wednesday 30th November 2011.
