Emirates has unveiled its highly anticipated television commercial featuring Hollywood actress, director and producer Jennifer Aniston.
This marks the first time Emirates has collaborated with the international star in a global digital and TV campaign.
The Golden Globe and Emmy award-winning actress showcases her impeccable comedic timing in the global airline’s light-hearted ad.
The ad opens with Aniston looking frantically for the on-board shower and lounge but being mocked and ridiculed by the cabin crew.
It turns out to be a nightmare as she wakes up to reality in her own Private Suite in the Emirates First Class cabin before getting acquainted with the airline’s iconic A380 Shower Spa and on-board Lounge.
Boutros Boutros, Emirates divisional senior vice president, corporate communications, marketing and brand explained: “Jennifer Aniston’s appeal and effortless connection with a global audience makes her the perfect choice for our campaign.
“As one of the busiest women in Hollywood, Aniston, like many of our customers, enjoys downtime only when she is travelling.
“At Emirates, we ensure the experience is an exceptional one.
“In a departure from the usual airline industry ads, we chose to take a humorous approach to showcase the amazing products we offer on board.
“We couldn’t think of anyone better suited for the role than Jennifer Aniston and we wrote the script with her in mind.
“Her professionalism and comedic talent shone on the set and we are very pleased with the outcome,” he added.
The global digital and television campaign will begin in the United States and the UAE before being rolled out in November to other countries where Emirates has a big operational presence – including the UK, Germany, France, Italy, India and Australia.
Emirates has, to date, invested US$20 million in securing TV spots worldwide for this campaign, which will have a 30-second and longer 60-second version.
