Emirates and the EU

Connectivity supports economic development

Emirates began flying to the EU in 1987 and has since grown in a progressive manner, in line with demand, expanding service to both major and secondary cities across Europe. We fly more than 430 wide-body passenger flights and 58 all-cargo flights to and from the EU every week, and currently fly to 18 of the 28 Member States, including Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the UK.

In 2015, Emirates commissioned a report from leading global research firm Frontier Economics to quantify the economic and jobs impact of our passenger and cargo operations in the EU.

Frontier’s report reaffirms that Emirates plays an important role in supporting EU jobs, growth, and economic development.
