Emirates Named ‘Airline of the Year’ at 2018 Air Transport Awards
For its commitment to excellence, Emirates Airline has been named ‘Airline of the Year’ at the 2018 Air Transport Awards.
Emirates won the prestigious accolade based the evaluation from a jury comprised of executives and experts from different sectors within the aviation industry.
Emirates is the world’s largest international airline, flying to 159 destinations in 85 countries with one of the world’s youngest wide-body fleets made up of Boeing 777 and Airbus A380.
Over the past year, the airline has launched a number of significant product enhancements on its Boeing 777 and A380 aircraft. Emirates recently unveiled its enhanced A380 Onboard Lounge.
In November 2017, Emirates revealed its game-changing, fully enclosed Boeing 777-300ER First Class private suites, part of a multi-million dollar upgrade that saw enhancements in all classes.
The airline has also just introduced a brand new Business Class cabin and configuration on its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft, with wider seats laid out in a 2-2-2 configuration for the first time.
The Air Transport Awards are conducted every year, cutting across all of the main categories of the air transport industry.
