Emirates often runs sales from their NYC airports to Milan and Athens but they typically require 2 or more people to get the best price.
Not so with the Emirates Black Friday sale! You can fly solo (if that is your thing) for just $400 roundtrip.
Emirates’ Black Friday Sale: Fly to Italy or Greece for $400 Roundtrip!
Here are the details about Emirates’ Black Friday sale:
- Book before November 25 at 11:59PM ET
- Travel from January 15, 2018 through March 26, 2018 and August 20, 2018 through October 8, 2018

As I said, these Emirates’ deals normally require you to book with another person or more. But, this sale is great for just one person – or more! Plus, you can plan and book for travel through October of 2018! That is great!
You can also book using online agencies like Orbitz or Priceline!
Black out dates?
One thing to note – they do have blackout periods for the peak season for both Milan and Athens. That is ok, though! Prices are higher everywhere during those times of July – September.
Speaking for Greece, if you travel there prior to the blackout date of July 7 (such as in May or June), you will still get fantastic weather and cheaper prices all around. The same goes for after September 6. It can stay hot in Greece well into early October! If you wanted to hit some island destinations, there is an amazing fall off in rates around the first week of October – like a suite can go from $1,200 per night to just $140 per night the very next day!
If Greece and Italy are not your thing (what?!), you can also use this Emirates’ Black Friday sale to travel throughout their network at a discount. See this link for more options.
