Emirates plans to collaborate with Tourism Malaysia in bringing tourists from its global network especially Europe, Africa and West Asia into Malaysia via its Dubai hub, said Emirates’ Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer, Thierry Antinori.
He said Emirates’ target included business and leisure travellers from the three regions (Europe, Africa and West Asia) which are part of its network of 150 destinations across 80 countries.
“Southeast Asia especially Malaysia is a very important potential for Emirates and the airline has great plans in Malaysia despite the oil and gas issues globally.
“Malaysia’s geographical location between Singapore and Bangkok is very strategic for Emirates to tap into other markets,” Antinori added.
He said Emirates is celebrating its 20th year of operation in Malaysia this year, and to-date out of its 56,000 employees, 730 are Malaysian nationals who are mostly cabin crew.
