Emirates is one of the best airlines of our time. It was founded with the participation of the Royal Family of Dubai in March 1985 during the period of active economic development of the UAE. In October of the same year, the first commercial flight was made from the main airport of Dubai to Pakistan, Karachi. Gradually increasing the fleet, by the early 1990s, the company had already expanded its route network to 12 destinations and opened flights to Europe: London and Frankfurt. In 1994, Emirates became one of the fastest-growing airlines in the world. Today Emirates Airline is the largest carrier of modern and luxurious giant airliners — Airbus A380, operating flights to all continents except Antarctica.
The airline has a fleet of 257 airplanes. The airline regularly orders dozens of aircraft for fleet renewal. Emirates does not operate any aircraft for more than five years. You can buy a ticket for Emirates Airline aircraft on our website Planetofhotels.com.
