Reducing emissions

Operating modern and fuel efficient aircraft has been central to Emirates’ business model from the airline’s inception. We fly one of the youngest wide-body aircraft fleets in the sky with an average age of 6.5 years. This ongoing, multi-billion dollar investment, is Emirates’ biggest commitment - not only to passenger comfort, but also to reducing our environmental impact.
