du has entered into a new partnership with Holidays by flydubai – and is running a new contest that could see more than 100 luck winners embarking on all-expenses-paid overseas holidays.

The partnership is part of an effort by du to, as stated in a press release, “build its connection with customers and offer larger-than-life experiences beyond the scope of mobile operators.”

To celebrate the partnership, du is giving customers a chance to win all-expenses-paid holidays every day to one of three destinations: Azerbaijan, Egypt, or Georgia. du customers can enter the draw by paying bills or recharging their prepaid line through the du app or at www.du.ae/myaccount. The telco will announce 137 winners in total, with one customer winning the draw each day from August 1 to December 15, 2018. The first batch of 31 lucky winners will travel to the Georgian capital of Tbilisi on September 13.

Said Anthony Shiner, chief digital lifestyle and innovation officer at du: “We recognise that customers today are looking for more than a mobile services provider; they want a partner that would add value to their lives through an interactive relationship. And our goal is to become the partner of choice to our customers.”

Added Nelson Dsouza, vice president of Holidays at flydubai: “We are pleased to be collaborating with another homegrown brand like du, partnerships like this contribute in expanding possibilities and providing extensive benefits for customers.”

The next three batches of lucky winners will travel to Alexandria, Egypt in October, Tbilisi in November, and the Azerbaijani capital of Baku in December. The prize includes an all-inclusive trip for two with return tickets, hotel accommodation, breakfast, transportation, a city tour and free roaming.
