Emirates Named Airline of the Year 2012

UAE airline Emirates has been named the Airline of the Year for 2012 by the Centre for Aviation (CAPA) - the third time the highly-rated carrier has claimed the title.

The airline awarded the CAPA Airline of the Year title is selected as the carrier which has had the most impact on the aviation industry and its development. Emirates is the largest airline in the Middle East, employing over 50,000 people and operates more than 2,500 flights every week, and has become a regular recipient of awards for innovation and the quality of its services.

"Receiving the CAPA Airline of the Year 2012 award means a great deal to the whole of the Emirates Group," commented Emirates' chief vice president  of commercial operations far east and Australasia, Salem Obaidalla. "Having our efforts recognised within the industry, especially as Emirates continues to strengthen its services within the Asia Pacific and the Middle East, is testament to our successful business model," he added.

Mr Obaidalla went on to thank the airline's passengers, and promised that the airline would "continue to work hard to provide the high standard of service and product that they have come to expect from us."

CAPA is a Sydney-based independent advisor and consultant to airlines, governments, airports, tourism bodies and suppliers in the region. The awards for 2012 were announced at the World Aviation Summit in Hong Kong. Previous winners of the Airline of the Year accolade include Japan Airlines in 2011 and Air Asia in 2009.

Emirates was previous named CAPA Airline of the Year in 2010 and 2005.
