“Chauffeur-drive service will be offered to passengers for flights until 28th February 2014.”
– Emirates website[/bsu_pullquote] In a quiet update to its website, Dubai-based Emirates is withdrawing its free chauffeur transfer service for all first and business class passengers in Hong Kong after February 28, 2014.
The carrier has been slowly curtailing chauffeur services at other cities as well.
The airline cancelled the service, which is offered free to premium travellers, on passenger itineraries exclusively between Australian and New Zealand. Again the website says
Itineraries which are exclusively between New Zealand and Australia are not eligible for Chauffeur-drive. All other itineraries on Emirates-operated flights are eligible, including Business Class itineraries which involve a stopover in Australia.
All itineraries involving travel to Dubai or beyond on Qantas-operated flights are eligible, except itineraries which involve a stopover in Australia. If the itinerary includes a stopover, the leg between Australia and New Zealand on Qantas-operated flights is not eligible for Chauffeur-drive.
Itineraries between Asia and Australia/New Zealand on Qantas-operated flights are not eligible for Chauffeur-drive.
Similarly, the service is unavailable for passengers flying exclusively between Hong Kong and Bangkok.
