Emirates and the EU

Emirates and the EU

Partners in growth

Emirates flies to 12 of the EU’s 27 Member States (UK, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Greece, Malta, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Sweden and Spain) operating a total of 37 passenger flights to and from the EU each day, as well as 22 all-cargo flights per week.

These connections are creating strong ties between Emirates and the EU, leading to economic and consumer benefits which spread beyond solely the European capital and regional city destinations which Emirates serves.

Emirates is a friend of Europe and is committed to strengthening its existing partnership with EU Member States and European consumers, by actively participating in debates about the future of our industry at EU level. This paper outlines some of the pillars upon which this partnership is built, as well as areas where future co-operation may be increased.
