Emirates cel­e­brated a dou­ble win last week at the Condé Nast Trav­eller Read­ers’ Travel Awards, af­ter be­ing named Best Busi­ness Air­line and Best Air­line – Long­Haul Hol­i­day. The air­line won the pres­ti­gious ac­co­lades based on votes from Condé Nast Trav­eller read­ers’ for the best travel ex­pe­ri­ences in the world. The Condé Nast Trav­eller Read­ers’ Travel Awards 2018 ques­tion­naire ran on­line from 4 March to 3 May.

We are com­mit­ted to de­liv­er­ing the best pos­si­ble experience both in the air and on the ground for our cus­tomers, by con­tin­u­ally rais­ing the bar with our prod­uct of­fer­ing and ex­ceed­ing our pas­sen­gers’ ex­pec­ta­tions. We are very happy that both busi­ness and leisure trav­ellers con­tinue to choose Emirates as their air­line of choice.”

Emirates finds new ways to of­fer a world class travel experience and gives spe­cial con­sid­era- tion to the needs of cus­tomers dur­ing long-haul flights. The air­line an­nounced last month a re­vamp of its pre­mium of­fer­ing, with First Class pas­sen­gers find­ing the BYREDO travel well­ness range of skin­care in their pri­vate suites, Bow­ers & Wilkins Ac­tive Noise Can­celling head­phones and re­freshed Bul­gari amenity kits in both Busi­ness and First Class cab­ins.

Across all cab­ins, Emirates’ cus­tomers can dine on a se­lec­tion of the finest cui­sine and wines and choose be­tween more than 3,500 chan­nels of en­ter­tain­ment on the air­lines’ in­flight en­ter­tain­ment sys­tem Ice.

This isn’t the first time this year the air­line has been recog­nised for its in­no­va­tive prod­ucts and com­mit­ment to ex­cel­lent cus­tomer ser­vice.
