Why was Emirates awarded the "Best airline" Title on the 2016 Skytrax Awards List?
Emirates has been named the best airline in the world by Skytrax, the leading consumer aviation website for 2016. The Dubai-based airline received the award at the recently concluded Farnborough Air Show. Emirates has earned the honor for the fourth time in the past 15 years. The airline had started the winning strategy in 2013. This year, the airline dismantled Qatar Airways to obtain the honor.
What makes Emirates special?
When it comes to the Middle East, everything is extraordinary and spells class and luxury, the same goes for Emirates Airlines. From the design uniforms of the crew and support staff to the food and beverages on board, Emirates distinguishes itself on all criteria compared to other airlines.
The amenities that make Emirates special are:
Private Suites – Emirates flights have hotel-style rooms with private space for the comfort, convenience and relaxation of passengers.
Shower spa – No matter if you are traveling for business or pleasure, the hydromassage showers will allow you to cool down and prepare at your destination.
Exclusive lounges on board – If you have ever visited an Emirates airport lounge, you will know why it was declared the best. The lounges have spas, food buffets, relaxing beds and couches, and much more to keep you busy until you board your Emirates flight.
In-flight Wi-Fi – Wi-Fi is a must for any modern airline and how can Emirates fall behind? This is one of the first airlines to start offering Wi-Fi on all its short, medium and long-haul flights.
In-flight entertainment – ICE is Emirates’ inflight entertainment system. Passengers will fall in love with the wide variety of entertainment options. There are over 2,500 channels of movies, TV shows, music shows, and online games to choose from in multiple languages. The digital ice screen is wide with subtitles option as well. Passengers can create their own personal playlist for the entire trip.
World class cuisine – A selection of food from around the world that would define your meal on the flight; yes, that’s what would aptly describe what Emirates’ food and beverage section has to offer. From caviar to salmon to exquisite wine, it can all be found on board an Emirates flight.
These are only onboard services, but Emirates services are not limited to this only. The airline also takes care of its passengers on the ground. It offers airport transfers, car rentals and even limousines also on request for hassle-free transportation to the airport.
Middle Eastern airlines have set the standards for airlines around the world and it is time for others to join the competition. This competitiveness would only make flying fun for travelers like us.
