At the ceremony attended by over 350 industry executives, Emirates was crowned “Best Airline Worldwide”. It was also named “Airline with the Best First Class”, “Airline with the Best Economy Class” and “Airline with the Best Cabin Staff”.
Thierry Antinori, Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, who attended the ceremony said: “We are always in pursuit of excellence when it comes to delivering the Emirates experience, and providing value to our customers. That is why we continually invest in developing innovative and high quality products on board, and our cosmopolitan cabin crew put in every effort to deliver exceptional service within a permanently growing network. We are honoured to be recognised for our efforts by Business Traveller Middle East’s discerning readers.”
These prestigious accolades are a testament to Emirates’ on-going commitment to excellence and innovation across its different areas of business. During the last year, Emirates worked hard to deliver a high level of service across its ground and flight operations, even as it continued to expand its fleet and operations. In 2014, the airline added services to over 30 cities, and launched eight new routes to Kiev, Taipei, Boston, Abuja, Chicago, Oslo, Brussels, and Budapest. In 2015, Emirates will start flights to Bali on 3 June, and Orlando will follow on 1 September.
Emirates’ fleet of modern aircraft has now grown to 233 aircraft flying to 144 destinations, including the world’s largest Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 fleet.
