Voted Airline of the Year in 2013, Emirates Airlines is a subsidiary of The Emirates Group which is wholly owned by the government of Dubai’s Investment Corporation of Dubai. Emirates Airlines are also the largest airline in the Middle East. Based in Dubai at its hub at the Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates, this airline carrier operates nearly 3,400 flights weekly to more than 133 cities in 74 countries across six continents.
All cargo operations are controlled by the Emirates Group’s Emirates SkyCargo division.
Emirates Airlines and Qantas have joined forces and formed a global aviation partnership offering a seamless Australian and international network exclusive of frequent flyer benefits and world-class travel experiences. This partnership offers customers one-stop access to more than 70 Emirates destinations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Domestically in Australia, this deal opens up the Qantas network of more than 50 destinations and 5,000 flights weekly to Qantas customers. This service include between Australia and New Zealand, and Australia and South East Asia.
In terms of passenger kilometres, Emirates is ranked among the top ten carriers worldwide, making it the largest airline in the Middle East in terms of fleet size, revenue and the carrying of passengers. In 2012, Emirates was named the fourth-largest airline in the world in terms of international passengers carried and the scheduled passenger-kilometre flown. It is also a big feat that the airline carrier activates four of the world’s longest non-stop commercial flights from Dubai to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston.
Voted Airline of the Year in 2013, Emirates operates a mixed fleet of Airbuses and Boeing wide-body aircrafts, and is one of the few airlines to operate an all-wide-body aircraft fleet, of which the Boeing 777 is at the centre. Exhibiting their efficiency and wanting to create a system that not only enhances their operations but grows their product, Emirates has invested in a program called ‘tailored arrivals’ which allows air traffic control to determine the speed and flight profile from the air on to the runway. This allows the crew to accept a steady descent profile saving fuel and emissions.
With its main flights to South Africa landing in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg, passengers can book their selection of Economy, First and Business class tickets. In-flight entertainment includes hours of music, the latest Hollywood, Bollywood and World Cinema movies, including episodes of your favourite TV shows. And if you’re a gamer, there is also a selection of interactive games available to passengers. You can also keep up with the constant evolution of networking by staying connected for the duration of your travels with those on the ground through Wi-Fi, mobile phone or in-seat SMS and email.
