, the Dubai-based international
airline, has been recognised as Best Middle Eastern Airline at the
prestigious Business Traveller Awards 2005 at London’s Hilton Park Lane
Hotel. The award was presented by HRH The Princess Royal at a luncheon
attended by senior figures from the world’s leading travel companies, and is
based on results from the magazine’s 2005 survey of its readers.Business Traveller UK is published monthly, and is read by business
travellers, business travel managers and travel agents. Editions of the
magazine are also published in the Middle East, United States, Germany and
Hong Kong.

The award comes as Emirates continues to strengthen its services from the UK
to Dubai and beyond. The recent addition of a second daily service from
Birmingham and a fifth daily flight from London Heathrow means that the
carrier now offers 91 non-stop flights from the UK to Dubai each week. In
addition to services from Heathrow and Birmingham, the airline offers three
flights per day from London Gatwick, two per day from Manchester and a daily
service from Glasgow.


The award was accepted by Majid Al Mualla, Emirates’ Manager UK South, who
said: “We are delighted to be voted Best Middle Eastern Airline. The award
represents a powerful endorsement of our services from the UK business
traveller community, who have recognised the breadth of services that we
offer to Dubai and beyond.”
