Emirates wins gold award for first class private suites

Emirates: Dubai-based Emirates has been awarded gold by Future Travel Experience (FTE) for its fully-enclosed first class private suites.

The airline, which launched the suites in November last year on its Boeing 777 aircraft, won the award in the 'Up in the Air' category.

"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," said Matthias Schmid, Emirates' Senior Vice President for North America.

The FTE Global Awards celebrate the outstanding efforts of organizations that have gone the extra mile to improve the passenger experience both on the ground and in-flight.

Ryan Ghee, head of strategy, engagement and 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."
