Written by on January 18, 2019



Emirates has celebrated a hat trick win at the 2018 Business Traveller Africa Awards.

Emirates received awards for Best Business Class – for the second consecutive year, Best International Long-Haul Airline and Best Airport Business Lounge, underpinning its brand promise to offer a ‘better’ flying experience.

The Lounge award is for Emirates’ dedicated lounge at Johannesburg’s O.R. Tambo International Airport, in the international departures terminal. Emirates also operates an airport lounge in Cape Town. Over the years, Emirates has been honored multiple times in these categories.

Emirates Southern Africa Regional Manager Fouad Caunhye said that being recognised by the industry peers as well as travelers as their customer remains at the heart of what the firm does.

‘’’Awards are an indication that we are on the right track to creating memorable travel experiences. Emirates has been a consistent winner since the inception of the Awards in 2012, and this is just testament to our service and product offering,” said Dylan Rogers, Editor of Business Traveller Africa magazine. 

Emirates flies to 157 destinations around the world, in 85 countries, with 274 aircrafts. In South Africa, two of the four daily Emirates flights to Johannesburg are served by the iconic Airbus A380, to cater to growing demand for the airline’s popular, customer-orientated experience. Emirates also operates three daily flights to Cape Town and a daily flight to Durban.

Premium customers can access Emirates’ dedicated airport lounges at over 30 airports across six continents, including Johannesburg and Cape Town.
