DUBAI: Emirates progressed on its recovery path in 2021, rebuilding its passenger network to 128 cities by December including a new route to Miami launched in July.
At the end of 2021, all of Emirates’ 133 Boeing 777 aircraft and nearly 60 of its A380 fleet are in active service, connecting people to their loved ones and businesses to global opportunities. In addition, over 120 lounges and partner facilities have re-opened to serve the airline’s premium customers and frequent flyers, according to a statement from the UAE carrier.
Emirates Chairman and Chief Executive Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said: “Despite the recent rise of the Omicron variant and the slight slowdown it brought to our network, we are going into 2022 with optimism. We’ve built up some great momentum this year and expect business growth to pick up speed in 2022.
“Aviation has always been resilient, and we will continue to work with our industry partners to build back better for our customers and communities.”
