Our Business Model

An effective and successful business model based on transparency

Emirates Airline is independent, commercially run and self-sustainable. We are not subsidised and, despite some claims to the contrary, we do not benefit from reduced fuel rates or any other financial support from the Dubai Government. Our publicly available, PwC-audited annual report is prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards. We recognise that our commercial success and 28 consecutive years of profitability has made us a target for airlines that struggle to come to terms with competition and want to restrict it. We have nothing to hide and welcome all discussion on our activities.
