“With around 80 per cent of our revenue in Australia derived from trade, Emirates is committed to its travel trade partners,” Mr Brown said.

“We’re thrilled by this recognition from AFTA, the country’s peak travel industry body, at the industry’s night of nights”.

“This award recognises our continued work to offer the very best product to our travel trade partners, without whom, none of this would be possible. We’d like to thank them for their ongoing support.” he concluded.

Emirates has recently completed a flurry of upgrades to Australian services, including a second daily A380 for Sydney, a daily A380 for Melbourne, the launch of Adelaide on the route network and in March of this year, Perth services were upgraded to three times a day.
