Emirates A Winner With Business Travellers In Asia-Pacific

Business travellers in Asia Pacific have voted Dubai-based international carrier Emirates "Best Middle Eastern/African Airline", in a readers' survey conducted by Business Traveller Asia-Pacific.

The Business Traveller Asia-Pacific 2004 Annual Travel Awards presentation was held last night in Hong Kong. Guest-of-honour at the gala event Mrs Anson Chan, UNICEF Council Member and former Chief Secretary of the HKSAR, presented the award to Mr. Edwin Lau, Emirates' Regional Manager Great China and North East Asia.

Commenting on the latest achievement, Mr. Lau said: "We are delighted to win this award, which shows support from business travellers in the region. As a customer-focused airline, Emirates aims to deliver the best possible service to passengers on all routes and it is gratifying to be recognized by our customers."

He added: "Moving forward, Emirates will continue to offer our customers more convenient travel choices, and also introduce enhancements to our award-winning inflight service."

Emirates' A380-800 double-decker and A340-600 HGW aircraft, which will join the fleet from 2006, will boast the new advanced eX2 inflight entertainment system with features such as interactive audio, video, games, communication and connectivity support.

Emirates currently flies to 77 major cities in 54 countries with a modern fleet of wide-bodied aircraft. This year alone, the airline has introduced seven new destinations ? Lagos, Accra, Vienna, Shanghai, Glasgow, New York and Christchurch. Emirates also recently announced that Seychelles will be added to its network in January 2005.

One of the world's most dynamic and fastest-growing airlines, Emirates is continuously voted best in class across the full range of its operations. The group now boasts more than 250 international awards.

The 2004 Business Traveller Asia-Pacific Readership Survey was conducted from May to July this year, where readers voted for the best travel industry service providers, in over 40 categories.
