Emirates celebrates 10 years in Poland
Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, celebrates the tenth anniversary of its first commercial flight operation in Poland. Since the inaugural flight in February 2013, the airline has carried more than 1.6 million passengers on the service across more than 6,300 flights from Dubai to Warsaw in both directions.
The carrier offers Polish passengers a daily direct flight operated by a Boeing 777-300ER wide-body aircraft.
This year we are celebrating Emirates’ anniversary in Poland, which is an exceptional opportunity to summarize the past decade as we look ahead to 2023 with greater optimism. We are delighted that we have been operating flights on the Dubai-Warsaw route for the past ten years. Poland consistently remains a very important market for us, and we particularly value cooperation with partners that contribute to exceptional service for our clients and support the domestic development of trade and tourism. The past decade is motivation for us to continue on the path of providing the best quality services and maintaining the highest standards – said Maciej Pyrka, Country Manager of Emirates in Poland.
Over the years, Emirates flights to Warsaw have created new opportunities for business, trade and tourism and strengthened the ties between the United Arab Emirates and Poland. The Emirates Group employs more than 600 Poles, including cabin crew, pilots and employees in other business areas across the Group. Emirates offers candidates exceptional career opportunities, the chance to gain world-class expertise at the airline’s state-of-the-art training center in Dubai, including an excellent training facility and a wide range of development programs.
