Emirates Praised for Service

Emirates has been voted Airline with the Best Service in a recent survey of readers of two top Middle East travel and business magazines.

The airline was also voted Favourite Airline for Travel in the Gulf, for Travel in the Arab Countries and for Travel to the Far East by readers of Middle East Travel and Al Iktissad Wal Aamal magazines.

The Travel & Tourism Survey 2002 was inserted in the magazines from February to June 2002 and were circulated throughout the Middle East, North Africa and Europe.

The survey drew a large response from across the regions and included replies from decision-makers and executives in top managerial positions who are regular travellers.

The awards’ presentation ceremony was held at the Phoenicia Inter-Continental Hotel in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. The glittering black-tie event was attended by winners’ representatives and top travel professionals.


Emirates has won over 200 international awards for its service in the past 17 years since its launch, notably the Airline of the Year Award from Skytrax Research (UK), the world’s largest airline passenger survey, for the second year running.
