Air­line to be Expo part­ner

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Emi­rates Air­line has been named the of­fi­cial part­ner of the Expo 2020. As Expo 2020’s first Pre­mier Part­ner, Emi­rates air­line will play a key role in bring­ing vis­i­tors to the event and sell­ing tick­ets. Na­tional news agency WAM said the air­line will be able to use its 150-des­ti­na­tion net­work to pro­mote the six month event. WAM re­ported the air­line is “uniquely well placed to sup­port Expo 2020 Dubai in at­tract­ing 25 mil­lion vis­i­tors, 70 per cent of whom are ex­pected to travel in­ter­na­tion­ally to visit the Expo”. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Mak­toum, Chair­man and Chief Ex­ec­u­tive of Emi­rates Air­line and Group, said: “The air­line has been an early sup­porter of Dubai’s suc­cess­ful bid to host the Expo, and will now part­ner with Expo 2020 to bring this event to Dubai, and to build a last­ing legacy for the UAE and the en­tire re­gion.”
