The airline was established on May 25, 1985 by the Dubai government and was supported by the founder of the German airline Germania, Hinrich Bischoff, in its beginning.[9] It started operations with flights to Karachi and Mumbai followed by Delhi in September. Two Airbus A300 and Boeing 737-300 were leased from Pakistan International Airlines (PIA). Subsequently two Boeing 727-200 Advanced were acquired from the UAE's Royal Flight. These aircraft were used until Emirates began taking delivery of a fleet of newly built Airbus A300-600R and Airbus A310-300 wide-body aircraft.

Recently, the airline converted an order for A380F into passenger version and are due for delivery in 2009. In its place the airline has opted to order ten of the recently launched Boeing 747-8 freighters for its SkyCargo subsidiary. The reason Emirates has chosen the Boeing 747-8 "derivative" freighter over the all-new Airbus A380-F is the Boeing aircraft's nose-loading capability, something the rival Airbus freighter is lacking.[42][43] The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA, TYO: 7661) is a major aerospace and defense corporation, originally founded by William Edward Boeing. ...

In addition, Emirates also stated that it was evaluating the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental, the yet to be launched passenger version of the Boeing 747-8, especially the "stretched" version now studied by Boeing which would incorporate the same 5.6 m stretch as the freight variant instead of the 3.6 m stretch envisaged for the passenger model. This would bring the 747-8I's capacity 20% closer to the Airbus A380-800's typical three-class 555-seat capacity (470 seats in a three-class-configuration instead of 450). The Boeing 747-8 is the latest variant of the Boeing 747, officially announced in 2005. ...


Emirates Airline is negotiating for up to 20 Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental aircraft, according to Flight International magazine. Emirates SkyCargo already has an order for ten 747-8 freighter aircraft and an option for ten more in a $5.6 billion deal inked September 2007. Emirates is in talks for the 747-8I passenger version, however, as of November 2007, according to an article published in Air Transport World magazine, Boeing stated that it might propose to produce a shrunk version of the 747-8 to allow for more range for service between the North American West coast and Dubai.

Business model

Emirates business model has led to their commercial success in the aviation industry.[12] The airline has a lean workforce which can be compared to low-cost carriers rather than traditional flag carriers. It has a simple organisational structure, that allows the airline to maintain low overhead costs and it must pay no income taxes on wages. Due to the low operating costs at its Dubai base, some industry analysts believe the airline is second only to Ryanair on a cash cost per seat basis.[51] Therefore, the airline is able to serve secondary destinations as well as connecting to places via their hub in Dubai.[52] The term business model describes a broad range of informal and formal models that are used by enterprises to represent various aspects of business, including its purpose, offerings, strategies, infrastructure, organizational structures, trading practices and operational processes and policies. ...

For the unrelated U.S. carrier, see Ryan International Airlines. ... An airline hub is an airport that an airline uses as a transfer point to get passengers to their intended destination. ...


The airline has not joined any major global airline alliances. The airline operates only wide-body aircraft which results in lower unit costs compared to other major airlines operating a mixture of narrow and wide-body aircraft. It allows Emirates to use the aircraft's cargo capacity to increase its revenues and total profits. Since Dubai International Airport does not have any flying restrictions at night, the airline is able to highly utilise their aircraft. The airline virtually does not have any legacy costs compared to other airlines. It also helps that all forms of strikes are banned in the UAE (except for construction related strikes).[51] An airline alliance is an agreement between two or more airlines to cooperate for the foreseeable future on a substantial level. ...

Employment

Emirates, which hopes to take delivery of 55 Airbus A380 has invested Dh73 million ($20 million) to expand its crew training facility at the Emirates Training Centre. In order to serve its expanding operations the airline has been hiring new cabin crew at a rate of 60 per week, due to rise to 100 per week as larger aircraft, especially the A380s, join the fleet. By 2011, Emirates expects to have more than 17,000 cabin crew on its payroll, this figure was previously 14,000 crew, however due to the growth of the airline, the figure was revised.[citation needed] The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine airliner manufactured by the European corporation Airbus, an EADS subsidiary. ... Aircrew redirects here. ...


Rivalry

The established network carriers in Europe and Australia, i.e. Air France-KLM, British Airways, Lufthansa, and Qantas, perceive Emirates' strategic decision to reposition itself as a global carrier as a major threat because it increasingly enables an ever-growing number of air travellers to by-pass traditional airline hubs such as London Heathrow Airport, Charles de Gaulle International Airport, and Frankfurt Airport on their way between Europe/North America and Asia/Australia by changing flights in Dubai instead. These carriers also find it difficult to deal with the growing competitive threat Emirates poses to their business because of their much higher cost base.

For other uses, see Frankfurt Airport (disambiguation). ...


Some of these carriers—notably Air France and Qantas—are so concerned about the detrimental effects of Emirates' growth on their future ability to compete with it on a level playing field that they have resorted to openly accusing their Dubai-based rival of receiving hidden state subsidies and of maintaining too cosy a relationship with Dubai's airport authority as well as its aviation authority, both of which are also wholly state-owned entities that share the same government owner with the airline. In addition, they have also accused Emirates of taking unfair advantage of its government shareholder's sovereign borrower status. They claim that this masks its true financial performance and reduces its borrowing costs below market rates.[53][12][54] Air France (formally Société Air France) is Europes largest airline company. ... A level playing field is a concept about fairness, not that each player has an equal chance to succeed, but that they all play by the same set of rules. ...


Marketing and sponsorships

Emirates is a sponsor of sports clubs and events, both at its home base and in its overseas markets. It also sponsors the annual Dubai Shopping Festival, the Dubai Summer Surprises and the West Australian Symphony Orchestra.[55] For Emirates, marketing expenses account for a far greater share of its total costs than for most of its competitors.[51] In the English-speaking world the sponsorship always carries the words "Fly Emirates". Emirates sponsors Arsenal Football Club and their 60,000 seater Emirates Stadium as well as Hamburger SV and the Collingwood Football Club.

Emirates Airline: Information from Answers.com (2026 words)
Emirates SkyCargo is the cargo subsidiary of Emirates.
In addition, Emirates also said that it was evaluating the 747-8I [I for Intercontinental], the yet to be launched passenger version of the 747-8, especially the "stretched" version now studied by Boeing which would incorporate the same 5.6m stretch as the freight variant instead of the mere 3.6m stretch currently envisaged for the passenger model.
Emirates became the first company to sponsor two teams in one UEFA Champions League match in 2006, with Hamburger SV facing Arsenal F.C. Under UEFA regulations, one sponsor cannot appear on both teams' shirts, so for both games, the away side had "Dubai" on their shirts, with the home team wearing Emirates shirts.
