Emirates Airlines is the largest major airline in the Middle East. It is the national airline of Dubai, United Arab Emirates and operates over 2400 passenger flights per week, from its hub at Dubai International Airport Terminal 3, to 108 destinations in 60 countries across 6 continents                 


Emirates Airlines was established to improve international communications and with the increasing importance of Dubai as a centre of business and commerce in the Arabian Gulf/Middle East Region. Emirates (EK) began operations with two leased aircraft - an Airbus 300 and a Boeing 737-300, serving three destinations; daily flights to Bombay and Karachi and thrice weekly to Delhi.

Within the first year of operations, Emirates acquired its first fully owned aircraft, a Boeing 727. Its network expanded to include Dhaka, Colombo, Cairo and Oman. In July 1987, Emirates took delivery of its A310-300 and introduced a non-stop service to London Gatwick. In August, the second A310 was received and two new destinations, Istanbul and Frankfurt, were added to the network.

Since then Emirates Airlines has grown to become an award-winning, world-class carrier and is now well on course to move from a small, to a medium sized global Airline by 2003. Today, the key aircraft in operation in Emirates fleet, include Boeing 777-200s, Boeing 777-300s and Airbus A330-200s. The Airline is now undergoing a huge fleet expansion and renewal programme, with A330s gradually replacing the older A300-600s and A310-300s. Airbus A340-500s are also planned for delivery during 2002/2003.During 2003/2004, four Airbus A340-500 were delivered, with the remaining four due for delivery later this year.
