If you book a flight to Dubai with Emirates, you stand to get a complimentary day pass to visit Expo 2020 Dubai.

Those who are in transit will be able to take advantage of the deal as well. “Are you just going through?” You can still get a free Expo 2020 day pass if your connection in Dubai is longer than six hours, according to Emirates’ website.

To get that free pass passengers must submit their information on the website with the tickets emailed to them. The day pass will no longer be valid if flights are canceled or dates are changed, and travelers will have to request a new one by inputting new flight information.

Expo 2020 Dubai was supposed to start in October 2020, however, it was postponed for a year due to the coronavirus pandemic, while it kept its name.

Expo 2020 Dubai single-entry tickets will cost $25.86, while a six-month pass would cost $134.75. A $53.08 month-long multi-entry pass is also available.

Individuals under the age of 18 and those with disabilities are admitted for free, while the primary caregiver or accompanying person receives a 50 percent discount.

Visitors aged 60 and up, as well as students with a valid identity card from any academic institution across the world, are admitted free of charge.

Furthermore, passengers who purchase trips between October 1 and March 31, 2022, will receive complimentary day passes from the Dubai airline. Each person will receive one free pass per booking, with the person being able to choose the day they want to attend the event.

The Expo 2020 Dubai site will be open daily. 10 AM to midnight from Saturday through Wednesday, and from 10 AM to 2 AM on Thursday and Friday. Visitors are not required to be COVID vaccinated, although it is strongly advised.
