For the first time ever, fans of the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature can snap up the ultimate Weekend Pass.
Organisers say the first 20 passes of the AED 499 weekend pass sold before October 20 will be offered 20 per cent discount.
"We are very excited about these brand-new Passes. They offer great value and the additional early bird discount amounts to an amazing 50 per cent off the full weekend," said festival director Ahlam Bolooki.
"We know that once our line-up is announced the tickets will be snapped up, so we are releasing the passes early to give our Festival fans the chance to get ahead. It will help people make the most of their Festival experience and it is a wonderful opportunity to try something different and discover something new."
The Festival will be held February 4-9, 2020, and passes will go on sale today for one week.
The full line-up for the Festival will be announced in mid-November, when tickets for all sessions go on sale.
It is expected that more than 130 writers will be appearing at the 2020 event, which is the largest and best loved celebration of the written and spoken word in the Arab world.
