“The high fuel cost as well as currency devaluations in markets like India, Brazil, Angola and Iran wiped approximately $1.25bn from our profits,” commented Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chair and CEO of Emirates Group.

“We are proactively managing the myriad challenges faced by the airline and travel industry, including the relentless downward pressure on yields and uncertain economic and political realities in our region and in other parts of the world.”

Comair Flight Services were granted the title of Best Private Aviation Operator for the third consecutive year.
