This flight sale is what we love about Valentine’s Day. Two people can travel for almost the price of one to select international destinations on Emirates. You could take your companion to see the splendor of Dubai or the bustle of Bangkok, and the tropical Maldives and Bali are just a cheap flight away. Plus there are great rates to both Johannesburg and Cape Town in South Africa.

The special rates start at just $799 for round-trip tickets for two. Some routes to Bangkok and Cape Town are $2,000 for two people. Typically it can cost about $1,200 to $1,700 for one person flying Emirates for the same trips.

The deal is good for travel from Feb. 21 – May 10, and Aug. 20 – Dec. 5, 2019. Some blackout dates may apply depending on the route. Book by Feb. 17, 2019.

You can score discounts for economy, business and first class. There must be at least two people and no more than eight people flying the same itinerary for the companion fares to kick-in. Kids tickets for children between the ages of two to 11 will cost 75% of the adult fare.
