Emirates stirs the travel dreams of Sri Lankans with exciting Facebook competition

Air travel is often the stuff dreams are made of, and Emirates, a global connector of people and their dreams, is offering Sri Lankans a chance to win two tickets to a destination in Europe via an exciting competition on Facebook.

The competition, which went live at midnight on Wednesday, 18th July on the Emirates Facebook page www.facebook.com/Emirates is open to Facebook users above the age of 21 in Sri Lanka.


It closes at midnight on Saturday, 28th July.

“Tell us, in 50 words or less, what your dream Emirates destination is and why, and stand a chance to win two Economy Class return tickets to any one of our European destinations,” the Emirates Facebook post invites.

Intended to generate wider awareness about the virtually unlimited travel options Emirates offers Sri Lankans by connecting the island to a global network of 155 destinations on six continents, the competition is aptly titled ‘My Dream Emirates Destination.’

“Whether it is for pleasure or business, travel stimulates emotions, and destinations often come to represent memories or aspirations,” said Chandana de Silva Emirates’ Area Manager for Sri Lanka and the Maldives.


“Certain destinations exert a pull that can only be satisfied by going there.


This competition is inspired by the magic of travel, and Emirates’ ability to make travel dreams come true.”

“The fact that Emirates offers 155 destinations means that not only are we the best choice for Sri Lankans who wish to see the world, we offer destinations to suit every aspiration and budget, as well as the unbeatable experience of flying the world’s best airline including a chance to experience the iconic Emirates Airbus A380 when travelling beyond Dubai,” Mr de Silva added.

Emirates commenced operations to Sri Lanka in April 1986.


The Emirates Group employs more than 1,350 Sri Lankans who are an important segment of its multinational employee base, contributing to the success of the company in their diverse roles.

Emirates currently connects Sri Lanka to the world with 35 flights a week from Colombo -- 28 flights a week westward to the Maldives and Dubai and a daily flight eastward to Singapore.
