The Last Word
Over the last two decades Emirates has grown into a global airline connecting over 100 cities on six continents. Emirates is the only airline in New Zealand that operates A380 from Auckland. Emirates' outstanding success is firmly rooted in its total commitment to providing innovative products and the highest quality service to passengers. It also boasts one of the youngest and safest fleets in the sky. The commitment to constantly innovate and improve is one of the many reasons why 275 million passengers chose to fly with Emirates.
