Tell me about Emirates
Although Emirates may be considered young when compared to competitors, ownership by the Dubai government has encouraged rapid growth since the carriers first flight in 1985. Now, 100 destinations across 66 countries can be reached through a fleet of 153 planes. As part of the wider Emirates Group, the airline strives to deliver the highest quality in every service it provides across the globe. This aim is strengthened by record aircraft purchases, outlining the airline's commitment to continuous improvements in service.
What's special about Emirates' cabin crew?
Emirates' reputation for providing a top quality experience throughout their operations is upheld by the actions of their cabin crew and related staff. Innovation, dynamism and passion are key aspects of the cabin crews work ethic. High standards are maintained through having, first and foremost, a positive attitude and empathy for others.
Has Emirates won any other awards?
Last year saw the airline win four awards across a variety of categories including: World's Best Airline Inflight Entertainment, Treasury Team of the Year and Gold Annual Air Cargo Excellence. In 2011 the UAEs flagship airline has already scooped Top North American Club Lounge.
On the night of the Holiday Extras Customers' Awards, Joelle Watkins, corporate communications manager, Emirates, said: “Emirates is delighted to be recognised by Holiday Extras’ customers in the Best Airline and Best Airline Cabin Crew categories. Leisure travel forms a significant part of our business especially to regions such as Dubai, the Indian Ocean, the Far East and Australasia from key regional airports such as London Gatwick and Birmingham so the endorsement is very welcome.”
