Emirates wins three industry accolades

DUBAI, 24 days ago

Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, has scooped three industry-leading awards for its game-changing First Class Private Suites and in-flight entertainment system ‘ice’, in addition to being named the ‘Best Long Haul Airline - Middle East and Africa’. 
 
The airline clinched the prestigious accolades at the Future Travel Experience (FTE) Asia Awards 2018, held in Singapore recently, and at the AirlineRatings.com Airline Excellence Awards 2019.
 
At the FTE Asia Awards, Emirates’ innovative and fully-enclosed First Class Suites topped the in-flight experiences amongst West Asian airlines to bag the “Best Customer Experience Initiative” award in the ‘Up in the Air’ category. 
 
The award in this category celebrates outstanding airline initiatives that have had the most positive impact on the passenger experience in-flight. 
 
Emirates’ state-of-the-art VR seat selection platform was also nominated for “Best Customer Experience Initiative” in the ‘On the Ground’ category, which recognises initiatives that elevate the passenger experience on the ground.
 
Emirates was named ‘Best Long Haul Airline - Middle East and Africa’ by AirlineRatings.com and ‘ice’, its inflight entertainment system, continued its global award-winning streak by securing the ‘Best Inflight Entertainment’ award for the third consecutive year in the world’s only safety and product rating website. 
 
Emirates also emerged as one of the top 10 airlines for 2019 by AirlineRatings.com in conjunction with its Airline Excellence Awards. To be named in the top 10, airlines must achieve a seven-star safety rating and demonstrate leadership in innovation for passenger comfort.
 
The airline has been an industry benchmark in cabin innovation for years and dominates long-haul travel, offering customers across six continents an unmatched travel experience. Last year, the airline launched product enhancements on its Boeing 777 and A380 aircraft – unveiling its enhanced A380 Onboard Lounge, game-changing Boeing 777-300ER First Class private suites and new Business Class cabin and configuration on its Boeing 777-200LR aircraft. 
 
Emirates is the first in the industry to introduce fully-enclosed First Class private suites, and this is part of the airline’s multi-million dollar upgrade. With floor-to-ceiling sliding doors and sleek design features inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Emirates’ Boeing 777 suites take luxury and privacy to the next level. These spacious, fully-enclosed private suites are laid out in a 1-1-1 configuration, offering up to 40 square feet of personal space each.
 
The highly-acclaimed ‘ice’ system, which has consistently earned recognition by the industry, is also the 14th-time winner in the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards 2018. It features over 3,500 channels and recently reached a new milestone by offering over 1,000 movies - more than any other airline. - TradeArabia News Service
