Airlines and Subsidy

Presenting the facts about Emirates and subsidies

As a major stakeholder in international aviation, we welcome a robust, fact-based debate on the issue of airline subsidies.

Our long-standing position is that we are opposed to state aid and we, in fact, campaign against airline subsidies. However, many claim that we benefit from reduced fuel and airport charges and receive other financial support. In a bid to dispel the myths surrounding Emirates and airline subsidies, we have produced a report which presents all the facts about our business model and our opinion on wider industry issues. You can read the report below.
