Emirates Airlines has been recognized for its exceptional service across all travel classes at the prestigious 2024 Skytrax World Airline Awards.

The airline secured an impressive seven awards, highlighting its strength in delivering a best-in-class travel experience.

Unmatched Entertainment Takes Center Stage

Emirates’ renowned inflight entertainment system, ice, clinched the coveted title of “World’s Best Airline Inflight Entertainment” for the 18th time.

Passengers can choose from a staggering selection of over 6,500 on-demand channels in more than 40 languages. This ensures there’s something to keep everyone entertained throughout their journey.

The system boasts over 4,000 hours of movies and TV shows. With up-to-date music and podcasts, and hundreds of popular series and box sets, boredom is simply not an option!

Passengers can even enjoy the latest releases from streaming giants like Paramount+ and HBO Max.

First Class: Luxury Meets Convenience

Emirates’ First Class experience continues to set the industry standard, as evidenced by their sweep of three awards.

These were “Best First-Class Airline Comfort Amenities,” “Best First-Class Airline in the Middle East,” and “Best First-Class Onboard Catering in the Middle East.”

Passengers can expect a smooth journey from start to finish, beginning with complimentary chauffeur service to and from the airport. From there they have access to a network of over 39 exclusive airport lounges worldwide.

First Class indulges travelers in fully enclosed private suites, a “dine on demand” service featuring unlimited caviar and Dom Pérignon champagne. Also on hand are an array of amenities designed for ultimate comfort and relaxation.

Think luxurious pyjamas, premium skincare products, and sustainable toiletries – everything you need to arrive feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
