Economic Benefits of Emirates Flights

Our economic impact in Australia

A 2011 study by Oxford Economics found that our one-stop connectivity to/from the MENA region and Europe via Dubai generated an additional A$248 million for the Australian economy and over A$840 million in consumer benefits. The study also revealed that in 2009, our passenger traffic generated A$1.33 billion in GDP for the Australian tourism sector.

A 2015 study from Deloitte Access Economics shows that one Emirates’ Dubai-Sydney A380 service makes an annual contribution of A$324 million (USD$233 million) to Australia’s GDP, supporting 3,770 jobs.
