The Emirates journey


Flying to over 140 destinations across six continents, Emirates is a global connector of people and places. In 1985, it launched with only two aircraft. Today, its fleet of over 230 wide-bodied aircraft is one of the youngest in the sky. Emirates made civil aviation history at the 2013 Dubai Air Show by placing the largest-ever aircraft order – 150 Boeing 777Xs, 35 Boeing 777-8Xs, 115 Boeing 777-9Xs and 50 Airbus A380s.
In the financial year 2013-14, Emirates welcomed 44.5 million passengers on board.
Growing at an average rate of more than 20% a year, Emirates is one of the world’s fastest growing airlines. It has achieved a profit for the last 26 consecutive years, declaring a net profit of US$887 million in the 2013-14 financial year.


A new era of travel


Emirates has the biggest A380 fleet in the world, with more than 50 A380s flying to over 30 destinations. The fuel efficiency of this double-decker aircraft makes it one of the most environmentally advanced aircraft in the sky.
On board, extra room and custom lighting create a new class of Economy. The exclusive Onboard Lounge is the perfect space for First Class and Business Class travellers to make new friends over cocktails and canapés. In First Class, customers can retreat to their own Private Suite and take a shower mid-flight to arrive fully refreshed.


More inspiration on every flight


Emirates’ multilingual cabin crew deliver world-class service from the moment the journey begins.
The award-winning ice entertainment system offers up to 1,800 channels of on-demand movies, TV shows, music and interactive games. It also allows customers to catch up on the latest news and stay connected to family and friends. Regionally inspired gourmet cuisine is available in every class. The menus are designed by master chefs to give tastes of new worlds in every bite.
There is plenty on board to keep tomorrow’s explorers entertained. Young flyers can enjoy dedicated kids’ channels, toys and special meals.


Redefining the travel experience


In First Class and Business Class, every journey starts before take-off. Chauffeur-driven transfers to the airport, priority check-in and exclusive lounges create a seamless experience from front door to destination.
Emirates has received over 500 international awards to date, including ten-time winner of Best Inflight Entertainment, awarded by Skytrax.
Terminal 3 at Dubai International airport is exclusively for Emirates customers. It has the world’s first dedicated A380 hub, with state-of-the-art lounges, multi-level boarding and an impressive choice of shops and restaurants.
