Emirates Airline is today the premier airline in the Middle East and among the best airlines in the world.

Also, Emirates Airline has a specific menu for kids with wide-ranging options, so you do not have to worry about what your picky child will eat during a long flight! The type, quality and variety of meals available in-flight on Emirates Airline is second to none, and you will be hard-pressed to find similar offerings on any other airline in the world. Also, the in-flight entertainment system on Emirates is the envy of the Airline Industry, the system is very user-friendly and interactive and provides passengers with over 3500 movie channels, music, games and TV shows on demand and in several languages!

Another hallmark of Emirates Airline is their commitment to customer satisfaction. From making that call to book your flight, checking in at the airport to the in-flight experience, the level of service is world class with Emirates. All of the Emirates staff provide genuine service with considerable attention to detail and a desire for customer satisfaction that is hard to replicate in the airline industry. One of the reasons for this level of professional service is due to the extensive and ongoing training that the Emirate staff receives, recruits undergo over seven weeks of training, learning the “Emirates standards” of safety and service delivery.

The fleet of Emirates Airlines is another reason why they are among the best in the world. The company operates 265 aeroplanes, which is made up of Airbus A380’s and Boeing 777’s exclusively, they are the only airline that uses the luxurious A380’s and Boeing 777’s only and their fleet is among the most modern in the world.
