For globetrotters, Emirates needs little introduction. The Dubai-based airline is renowned for its exceptional service, which recently earned it the title of "Airline of the Year" at the 2018 Air Transport Awards. Let's not forget the experience of flying Emirates Business Class on A380, which is often regarded as one the finest flights in the world of luxury air travel. Below, we list down all the reasons you'll love being onboard the A380.
The A380 Aircraft
In numbers: a 104 double-deck aircraft, 49 cities, six continents and more than 80 daily departures makes Emirates the largest operator of the A380 aircraft in the world. The aircraft is fitted with connectivity—a complimentary 20mb of Wi-Fi is made available throughout the cabin. If you're in need of entertainment, Emirates' multi-award winning in-flight system (or “ICE” for short) offers over 3,500 channels, in multiple languages.
Frequent travellers on Business Class will be pleased to know that menus are updated every month, serving up regional-inspired food on Royal Doulton fine bone china with Robert Welch cutlery.
Emirates Onboard Lounge
The enhanced Onboard Lounge is inspired by private yacht cabins and can accommodate up to 26 passengers at a time. Passengers can take in gourmet canapés and bubbly from around the world, or request signature cocktails prepared by a bartender. A 55-inch LCD screen displays flight information, along with news and sports updates like an actual bar would.
The All-New Emirates First and Business Class Lounge
A five-month long refurbishment sees the all-new Emirates First and Business Class Lounge at Changi Airport transformed into an exclusive haunt, which offers travellers a spot to rest and relax. Equipped with LED TVs, shower facilities, and a business centre, the lounge also features bespoke artwork. Business Class passengers transiting in Dubai are also able to access the Emirates Business Class Lounge and sip on Moët and Chandon champagne alongside canapés crafted by Michelin star chefs.
The cherry on top? Each Business Class ticket comes with your own personal chauffer who will take you to and from the airport. The service is available in over 70 cities, including Singapore.
