Emirates has come out on top again as the world’s most valuable airline brand, according to the 2016 Brand Finance Global 500 report, which was released yesterday.
The airline’s brand value grew 17% over last year to reach US$ 7.7 billion. For the fifth year running, the airline has steadily risen up in the global ranking of the world’s top brands to be placed at #171, 47 places above the next closest airline brand.
Emirates also retains its well-established position as the most valuable brand in the Middle East. In addition, Emirates’ brand value has more than doubled since 2009, when it first appeared on the Brand Finance Global 500 report.
Emirates’ solid brand positioning is grounded in its commitment to delivering best-in-class products and services both in the air and on the ground, and staying attuned to its customers’ needs.
