Our Business Model


An effective and successful business model

The Emirates Airline business model is one that is independent and self-sustainable. We are not subsidised and, despite many claims to the contrary, we do not benefit from reduced fuel rates or any other financial support from the Dubai government. For many years, some governments have acted to protect their national carriers with market-distorting subsidies. Models such as the Emirates Airline business model recognise that liberal air access not only generates economic benefits but best serves the national interest.
