Discover the World with Emirates
Emirates is the world’s largest international airline, boasting a global network of 159 destinations in 85 countries spanning six continents. Operating an all wide-body fleet of modern aircraft, Emirates has become synonymous with luxurious amenities including award-winning entertainment on board, regionally inspired gourmet in-flight meals, and a multilingual cabin crew that provides the airline’s famed hospitality.
Emirates was first welcomed to Malta International Airport’s airline family in 1998. Currently, the airline operates a daily flight from Malta to Dubai, via Larnaca in Cyprus, with a Boeing 777-300ER in a three-class cabin configuration. From Emirates’ convenient hub in Dubai, passengers can seamlessly travel further afield to other destinations in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.
But Dubai is also a destination in its own right, offering world-class hotels and resorts, opulent entertainment venues, a number of stunning beaches, and the desert. Dubai’s impressive feats of engineering and architecture such as the Burj Khalifa, the Palm islands, Burj Al Arab, and the Dubai Mall are the jewels in the city’s crown.
However, for thrill seekers, the desert and its unique landscape full of opportunity for adventure, holds a much bigger allure than these man-made wonders. A desert experience, in fact, should rank high on everyone’s itinerary when visiting Dubai. The element of adventure together with the beauty of the deep orange sand stretching as far as the eye can see, more than make up for the inconvenience the tiny granules tend to cause by getting everywhere.
At the moment, the city, which is the largest and most populous one in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is gearing up to welcome millions of visitors for the World Expo 2020. Stretching from October 2020 until April 2021, the expo is expected to welcome representatives from 200 countries to showcase new business ideas, innovations, and emerging technologies, whilst networking with like-minded individuals.Back to Overview
