Called Dubai Connect, the service entitles travellers to complimentary hotel accommodation, transfers and a visa to enter the UAE.
Dubai Connect Services is available to passengers with a connecting stopover time of 10 to 24 hours. It applies to all cabin classes (First Class, Business, and Economy).
The service has to be booked at least 24 hours ahead of the incoming flight to Dubai.
