In 1985, Emirates launched its first two routes from Dubai with only two air­craft in its fleet. Over 30 years later, it now op­er­ates the world’s largest fleets of Air­bus A380s and Boe­ing 777s with over 230 air­craft. De­spite al­ready hav­ing a net­work of more than 150 des­ti­na­tions in over 80 coun­tries world­wide, the car­rier is con­stantly adding new routes and up­grad­ing its ser­vices.

What sets Emirates apart from its com­peti­tors is the air­line’s will­ing­ness to em­brace tech­nol­ogy and in­no­va­tion, and their cabin crew who are con­sis­tently voted top 20 in the world. Ninety per cent of the Emirates fleet of­fers Wi-fi ser­vice in the air with the first 20MB free; and it has launched the world’s first in­ter­ac­tive amenity kit with aug­mented re­al­ity tech­nol­ogy in Econ­omy Class.

The car­rier’s in-flight en­ter tain­ment sys­tem, ICE, fea­tures over 2,500 en­ter­tain­ment chan­nels and won the Best In-flight En­ter­tain­ment award at the Sky­trax World Air­line Awards for the 12th con­sec­u­tive year in 2016. With all these ac­co­lades un­der its belt, is it any won­der they’re one of the most pop­u­lar air lines in the world?
