In addition to being the official carrier, Emirates has sponsored the main hall, named the Emirates Hall, where all major industry players will showcase their products and facilities.

Maurice Flanagan, Executive Vice Chairman Emirates airline and Group, said: “Emirates has been a sponsor and main exhibitor at the Dubai Airshow since its inception. The Dubai Airshow has grown to become a key event in the aviation and aerospace calendar and plays an important hand in facilitating numerous multimillion dollar aviation deals, uniting the worlds leading industry players.

“As the official carrier of the event and title sponsors of the new Emirates Hall we believe the Dubai Airshow provides a great platform for us to highlight our many products and services and we look forward to yet another successful show.”

Reaffirming its commitment to the Dubai Airshow Emirates has designed an impressive 154 square metre exhibition stand open to all airshow visitors. Spread across two stories the stand will feature a number of Emirates divisions including; Emirates SkyCargo, Emirates Engineering, Emirates Aviation College and Emirates UAE Sales.

The Emirates stand, located in the Emirates Hall stand number A200 is fully equipped and will house two private meeting and conference rooms as well as catering facilities, with all food prepared by the multi-award winning Emirates Flight Catering. Visitors to the stand will also have the opportunity to sample the industry-leading First Class Suite currently onboard Emirates’ A380 aircraft in a specially recreated cabin area.

For corporate hosting and networking Emirates will also have three double-storied chalets equipped to host up to 170 guests per day for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. The three Emirates chalets will display and promote some of Emirates’ most exciting new developments including the airlines recent route expansion in Africa as well as the company’s multi-million dollar sponsorship of the FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa.

Celebrating their 50th year of operation Dnata, part of the Emirates Group, will also have a strong presence at the Dubai Airshow, showcasing the four divisions – airport operations, cargo, international and travel services.

Set in a prime location near the airstrip the Emirates and Dnata chalets are well positioned with the best views of aircraft take-offs, landings and acrobatic displays.
