Emirates is one of the two flag carriers of the United Arab Emirates (the other is near Etihad). Based in Garhoud, Dubai, the airline is a subsidiary of The Emirates Group, which is owned by the government of Dubai’s Investment Corporation of Dubai. It is also the largest airline in the Middle East, operating more than 3,600 flights a week from its hub in Terminal 3 of Dubai International Airport before the COVID-19 pandemic. It operates in more than 150 cities in 80 countries on 6 continents through a fleet of nearly 300 aircraft. Cargo operations are operated by Emirates SkyCargo.

Emirates is the fourth largest airline in the world in terms of passenger-kilometres flown according to planned revenues, and the second largest in terms of freight-kilometres flown.

In the mid-1980s, Gulf Air began reducing its services to Dubai. As a result, Emirates was founded on March 15, 1985 with the support of the Royal Family of Dubai, with Pakistan International Airlines donating two of the airline’s first aircraft. With $10 million in seed capital, it had to operate independently of government subsidy. Pakistan International Airlines provided free training facilities to Emirates cabin crew at Karachi airport.

The airline was led by Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, the current president of the airline. In the years following its founding, the airline expanded both its fleet and its destinations. In October 2008, Emirates relocated all operations at Dubai International Airport to Terminal 3.

Emirates operates a mixed fleet of Airbus and Boeing wide-body aircraft and is one of the few airlines to operate an all-wide-body aircraft fleet (excluding Emirates Executive). As of December 2021, Emirates will be the largest Airbus A380 operator with 119 aircraft in service, and with one aircraft that has been retired. Since its introduction, the Airbus A380 has become an integral part of the Emirates fleet, especially on high-density long-haul routes.

Emirates is also the world’s largest Boeing 777 airline with 134 aircraft in service. The company slogans were Be good to yourself and fly Emirates, From Dubai to destinations around the world, Fly Emirates Keep Discovering, The finest in the sky and Hello Tomorrow (also sometimes used today); the current slogan is Fly Emirates, Fly Better.
