Emirates flies ‘Family Tree’ star to Milan Expo 2015
UAE, DUBAI, 19th May 2015 – Emirates, a global connector of people, places, and cultures, helped Mahra Mustafa, star of ‘Family Tree’ make a special visit to the UAE Pavilion of Milan Expo 2015 for a viewing of the film.
The ‘Family Tree,’ an eight minute long mini feature film, follows a young girl, Sara (played by Mahra Mustafa), as she learns that values and experiences of past generations can help in the quest for a sustainable future. It also sheds light on the palm tree, which forms a major part of the UAE Pavilion as it is considered to be the backbone of life in the country. The movie is in Italian with English subtitles.
Emirates has grown in size alongside Dubai, and the extensive connectivity created has brought about unprecedented access and opportunities. Dubai’s geocentricity between East and West has been vital to Emirates’ success, based on the premise that passengers can connect to anywhere on the globe with just one stop in Dubai. This inherent geographic advantage has been bolstered by world-class infrastructure.
Milan will hand Dubai the baton for Expo 2020, and the cities have signed an agreement for strategic cooperation on expo coordination. Emirates will continue to play a central role in bringing the winning theme, titled Connecting minds, creating the future, to life as Dubai will lead discussions on important global issues such as sustainability, mobility and opportunity during Expo 2020.
Emirates has a dedicated lounge within the UAE Pavilion at Milan Expo 2015. The lounge can accommodate for up to 60 guests, and is anticipated to receive over 27,000 guests during the course of the six month Expo.
The airline currently operates three flights per day between Dubai and Milan.
