Posted 12 September 2018 · Add Comment

Emirates airline’s fully-enclosed First Class Private Suites, launched in November last year on its Boeing 777 aircraft, has been awarded gold by Future Travel Experience (FTE) in the “Up in the Air” category.

 

The FTE Global Awards celebrate the outstanding efforts of organisations that have gone the extra mile to improve the passenger experience both on the ground and in-flight. The “Best ‘Up in the Air’ Initiative” category recognises the top three initiatives that have helped to improve the passenger experience and/or significantly enhance operational efficiency during the in-flight phase of the travel process.

The awards ceremony took place at HYDE, an indoor-outdoor nightlife venue overlooking the Fountains of Bellagio on the world famous Las Vegas Strip, the evening of Tuesday, 11 of September.

Matthias Schmid, Emirates’ Senior Vice President for North America, who collected the award, said: “We’re delighted that Emirates has won the gold award for our new 777 First Class private suites, which have once again raised the bar in commercial aviation. We always pursue excellence when it comes to delivering the best experience possible to our customers, so to be recognised for our efforts validates the attention we put into our products and services.”

Ryan Ghee, Head of Strategy, Engagement & Content, Future Travel Experience said: “The ‘Up in the Air’ category in the FTE Global Awards 2018 was extremely competitive but Emirates ultimately came out on top for its display of true innovation with the development of its First Class Private Suites. On behalf of everyone at Future Travel Experience, I would like to congratulate Emirates on winning this prestigious award.”
