At a ceremony attended by key travel industry executives, Emirates was crowned “Best Airline Worldwide”. It was also named “Airline with the Best First Class”, “Airline with the Best First Class Lounge” and “Best Frequent Flyer Programme”.

The Dubai-based carrier brought home the crown for being the “Best Airline Worldwide” at the Business Traveller Middle East 2017 Awards on Sunday.
