Emirates (EK/UAE)

Emirates is the Middle East's largest airline and the world's fourth-largest. As Gulf Air began to cut back its services in the mid-1980s, the Dubai royal family gave their backing to the new airline. It started in 1985 with two aircraft leased from Pakistan Airlines and within two years was serving eleven destinations including non-stop flights to London Gatwick. The airline has gone from strength to strength, raising its profile with sporting sponsorships around the world, including a billion dollar stadium deal in 2005 with the British football team, Arsenal. The same year saw the airline place the largest Boeing 777 order in history. It's gone on to be the largest buyer of new aircraft in the world.
