The new Emirates gateway will feature bespoke products and services, including rich content and differentiated pricing, starting from 01 July, 2021, according to the airline.
From the same day, it adds, a surcharge on all bookings made via Global Distribution Systems (GDS) will also kick in.

He expressed pleasure at the introduction of "the next batch of new exclusive features and benefits for them on Emirates Gateway."
Emirates Gateway was launched in October last year.
