Voted best airline, both offline and online
Emirates’ focus on meeting and exceeding customer expectations both in the air and on the ground were recognised on Wednesday 26th April 2017 with four accolades at the Business Traveller Middle East 2017 Awards.
At a ceremony attended by key travel industry executives, Emirates was crowned
“Best Airline Worldwide”,
“Airline with the Best First Class”,
“Airline with the Best First Class Lounge” and “Best Frequent Flyer Programme”.
Earlier this month, Emirates was recognised as the ‘Best Airline in the World’ at the TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards for airlines. The award was based on thousands of reviews Emirates received from the TripAdvisor community over the past twelve months. Emirates was the most positively reviewed airline in the industry over that period of time.
A380 for going to Spain
Emirates has also announced that all of its flights to Spain will be operated by the iconic A380. In addition to the existing double daily A380 service to Barcelona, the airline will operate a double daily A380 service to Madrid, significantly boosting seat capacity from Dubai to Spain. This change enables more A380 to A380 connections to and from key business and leisure destinations such as Australia, China, South Korea and South East Asia with just one stop in Dubai.
The links between Madrid and Emirates extend far beyond the airline’s double daily service. Emirates has been a proud sponsor of Real Madrid since 2011.
A380 for going to Australia:
Emirates, which flies daily from Lusaka and Harare to Dubai, will provide an all-A380 service from Melbourne when it upgrades its third daily flight from the Australian city, EK408 and EK409, from a Boeing 777-300ER to an A380 operation.
The move will add 945 seats per week to the Australian city from 25 March 2018, representing a 10% increase in capacity. This means Emirates customers can enjoy even more seamless “A380 to A380” connections via its hub in Dubai to 18 points in the UK and Europe.
