The Index Today

Business Traveller Middle East awards crowned Emirates has been named the “Best Airline Worldwide” for the ninth time in a row. The Dubai airline also won in three other categories — “Best Premium Economy Class”, “Best Economy Class” and “Best Frequent Flyer Programme.”

The awards are a recognition of Emirates’ commitment to delivering on its “Fly Better” promise through multibillion dollar investments in customer experience initiatives, products and services in the air and on the ground during a year of rebuilding and recovery, Wam reported.

This year on August 1, Emirates is set to unveil the complete premium economy experience on-board, with a dedicated check-in service at Dubai International Airport, complimentary amenity kits, fine glass and chinaware, curated dining and beverage choices.

The airline will be back to full capacity by the end of the year, up from the current 75 per cent to 80 per cent of pre-pandemic levels at which it is currently operating, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed, the airline's chairman and chief executive, said at the Arabian Travel Market on Tuesday.
