Emirates Key Developments

Emirates Airline Plans for a Second Gateway in Istanbul, Turkey

Emirates airline has announced plans for a second gateway in Istanbul, Turkey, with the launch of a daily service to Sabiha Gokcen Airport in December. The new service, which commences December 15, will complement Emirates’ existing 11 weekly flights to Ataturk Airport, offering even more convenience for both inbound and outbound travellers. The new service, with an early morning arrival into Dubai, will enable seamless connectivity to Emirates’ vast network across Africa, as well as to key Asian destinations like Guangzhou, Ho Chi Minh, Denpasar (Bali), and Phuket, just to name a few. The new service will commence with a daily flight operated by an Airbus A330-200 aircraft in a three-class layout - 12 in First, 42 in Business, and 183 in Economy. The aircraft also has the capacity to carry up to 17 tonnes of cargo. Emirates flight EK119 will depart Dubai at 17:15 and arrive in Istanbul at 20:15 daily. The return flight EK120 will leave Istanbul at 22:05, arriving in Dubai at 04:20 the next day.

Emirates Airline Announces Earnings and Operating Results for the Six Months Ended September 30, 2015

Emirates airline announced earnings and operating results for the six months ended September 30, 2015. The company announced its net profit surged 65% to AED 3.1 billion for the first six months of financial year 2015-16. Lower fuel prices and high passenger demand helped boost the carriers profit but revenues witnessed modest decline of 4% to AED 42.3 billion due to combined effect of an unfavorable currency environment and lower average fares reflecting the airlines decision to pass on some of its fuel cost savings to customers. Capacity measured in Available Seat Kilometres (ASKM) grew by 16% whilst passenger traffic carried measured in Revenue Passenger Kilometres (RPKM) was up 11% with average Passenger Seat Factor dropping slightly to 78.3% compared with last years 81.5%. Emirates carried 25.7 million passengers between April 1 and September 30, 2015 up 10% from the same period last year. The volume of cargo uplifted was up by 10% to reach 1.25 million tonnes a solid performance that continues to buck the market trend. This performance shows the airlines continued business growth both in terms of capacity on offer and traffic carried even accounting for the fact that during the same period last year the airline had temporarily reduced capacity when it parked 17 aircraft due to the runway closure at Dubai International.

Emirates Announces Codeshare Agreement with Alaska Airlines

Emirates announced a new code share and lounge agreement with Alaska Airlines (AS). Pending governmental approval, Emirates will begin marketing up to 300 daily Alaska Airlines flights, which will give customers the simplicity of purchasing connecting flights on both airlines using one reservation, and a seamless ticketing, check-in, boarding and baggage check experience during the entire journey. In addition, the new code share agreement will feature several other new benefits including reciprocal lounge access and priority boarding and check-in for elite fliers. Greater Connection Choice Across the Combined Network: With two daily flights now departing from Dubai to Seattle, the enhanced codeshare agreement gives passengers easy connections to 49 cities including Honolulu, Denver, Las Vegas, Portland, Phoenix, Pullman, Sacramento, Spokane, Anchorage, Juneau, and Fairbanks as well as Canadian destinations such as Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver and Victoria. Business Class Lounge Access and Priority Check-in: In addition to the codeshare agreement, Emirates Skywards® Gold & Platinum members will soon have access to Alaska Airlines Board Room lounges in Anchorage, Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles any time they book an Emirates flight that connects with Alaska Airlines. Likewise, Alaska Airlines MVP® Gold and MVP® Gold 75K members will also enjoy access to Emirates Business Class lounges at Dubai. At a later date, Emirates and Alaska Airlines elite members will also enjoy reciprocal priority check-in and boarding at Dubai, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Redeeming Miles for Reward Travel: Since launching a frequent flier partnership in 2012, members of Emirates Skywards and Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan have enjoyed earning and redeeming Miles for travel around the world.
