Emirates’ Amenity Kits Bag Top Honours

Now it’s official: Emirates’ amenity kits do have it all -sleekest lines, highest quality leather and lather, and top-of-the-range items from colognes and scents to balms, lotions, moisturisers, combs, dental and shaving kits - and are the best in the skies, according to Global Traveler, the leading U.S. travel magazine. 

In its November issue, the magazine scored Emirates’ kits tops in several premium class categories including: “Best Overall Amenity Kit” for both First and Business Class; “Women’s Fragrance” - both First and Business Class; “Spa Products” - First Class; and “Shaving Supplies” - Business Class.

Having tested amenity kits from top carriers around the globe, the publication heaped praise on the airline’s offerings, noting: “Emirates’ first-class “vanity tray” was the clear winner. The overall presentation won high marks - one tester even noted the tray complemented Emirates’ First Class suite.”

The article went on to say: “...the clear winner in first class is Emirates Airline’s men’s kit. It contains virtually everything you need packed in a very functional, black leather, soft-sided, zipper case.”

Terry Daly, Emirates’ Senior Vice President Service Delivery said: “Our guests in the premium classes are guaranteed a luxurious and pampered inflight experience.


“We package high-end cosmetics and luxury items in our amenity kits such as Clarins lotions that hydrate the skin, Bvlgari refresher towels, Roger & Gallet colognes and Gillette shaving products. The product ranges we include are a result of our research into our customers’ preferences and have been included to refresh and lend a sense of comfort to our   passengers during and after the flight.”

Adding to its impressive trophy collection, Emirates has won numerous awards throughout the year across a wide spectrum of its services, such as Best Airline - Silver Award (Skytrax Airline of the Year Awards 2004); Airline with the Best Cabin Staff and Best Airline Frequent Flyer (Business Traveller ME Awards).
