Emirates has been named as the “Best Airline Worldwide” at the Business Traveller Middle East 2017 Awards on Sunday.
It also won three other accolades: “Airline with the Best First Class,” “Airline with the Best First Class Lounge” and “Best Frequent Flyer Programme.”
The company said the awards were a result of its constant effort to meet and exceed customer expectations “both in the air and on the ground.”
Emirates has recently unveiled its newly designed Business Class seats, re-designed amenity kits for First and Business Class passengers, environmentally sustainable blankets and interactive augmented reality amenity kits for Economy Class passengers.
The airline’s Business Class Lounge at Concourse B in Dubai International Airport has also undergone an $11 million makeover. This, as the company also opened its newest Emirates Lounge in Cape Town International Airport.
Emirates Skywards, the airline’s loyalty programme, last year launched Cash+Miles, enabling members to redeem flights using a combination of cash and Skywards Miles, regardless of their membership tier.
Emirates also introduced “pay-per-visit” lounge access, enabling Emirates Skywards members and their guests travelling on Emirates to enjoy the airline’s First and Business Class lounges at Dubai International Airport and abroad.
For corporate customers, Emirates launched a revamped Emirates Business Rewards programme to provide greater value, including easier Miles redemptions and upgrades even on last-minute bookings.
