Emirates, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines, recently announced that it was going to expand its network by creating new destinations in Latin America, Europe, and Asia. The Dubai-based airline is the largest A380 operator, and flies to almost 120 destinations in 69 countries.
The Emirates Group is a highly profitable business with a turnover of $12 Billion and over 50,000 employees, and the Emirates airline is rapidly expanding and an award-winning international carrier. The Emirates airline is headquartered in Dubai.
On 4 June 2012, continuing its journey to rule the skies and airline sector globally, it will launch its flight service to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Emirates will be using an Airbus A330-200 to Ho Chi Minh City and it will be the 124th destination by the airline.
Emirates Airlines president Tim Clark said that “Following the signing of the Air Services Memorandum of Understanding between Vietnam and the United Arab Emirates in April 2011, we have been busy planning this route and it comes at a very exciting time for the airline, as our global network continues to expand.”
The airline in its effort to broaden the network has launched a new service linking Dubai with Buenos Aries and Rio de Janerio, solidifying its presence in the Americas region. Emirates VIP delegation headed by Thierry Antinori said “This new linked service to two of the most economically vibrant cities in South America will not only boost trade ties with the UAE, but will also introduce travelers to Emirates’ route network.”
This flight will be operated by Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
Emirates is the first airline in the world using Airbus A380 service to Malaysia when recently it completed scheduled flight to Kuala Lumpur from Dubai. On this momentous occasion where-in Emirates is aggressively enlarging its network, Richard Jewsbury Senior vice president, commercial operations, far East and Australia, said “We have been eagerly awaiting the start of our Airbus A380 service to Malaysia, a country that we have been operating flights to since 1996.”
Dublin stood as the 118th location on the list of destinations offered by Emirates commercial flight service, when on January 9 the airline added Dublin to its network. Tim Clark said “Today’s launch is a tremendous development for both Irish business and Irish Tourism.”
According to reports, the Airline is scheduled to launch commercial flight service to other international destinations such as Lusaka, Harare, Dallas and Seattle.
It is a matter of true astonishment from an economic stand point when uncertainty has cast thick, dark clouds on the global economic environment today, that an airline is expanding aggressively these days. Verily, it is a matter of Arabian miracles, indeed.
