Emirates warns of scam competition offering free flight tickets

Abu Dhabi: Dubai-based Emirates Airlines has issued a warning against a fake competition that claims to offer free roundtrip tickets.

The scam, which has been circulated on social media, asks people to answer four questions and win two round-trip Emirates tickets to Europe, Asia or domestic flights as vacation giveaways.

“Emirates is aware that there are online competitions circulating regarding (ticket) giveaways. This is not an official competition and we advise caution,” an Emirates spokesperson said in a statement to Khaleej Times. “All Emirates-authorised content is hosted on our official channels, including our social media accounts marked with a blue tick.”
