Dubai-based Emirates continues to elevate the flying experience for passengers around the world. Considered a global leader in the aviation industry, Emirates is renowned for its exceptional service, extensive route network and luxurious travel experience.

Here are five specific features that Emirates offers:

1. Award winning in-flight entertainment

Emirates is known for its exceptional inflight entertainment, with passengers given access to 5,000 movies, TV shows, music and games. Emirates revolutionized long-haul travel in the 1990s by introducing individual entertainment systems. The airline consistently won the prestigious ”Best In-flight Entertainment” award from Skytrax for over a decade. Their ICE system, considered the industry’s best, offers 32-inch screens for first-class passengers and 13.3-inch displays for economy class passengers.

2. Private shower

First-class passengers on Emirates’ Airbus A380 flights can shower while up in the air. One of the standout features is the spa-like shower available at 30,000 feet. Customers can enjoy a 5-minute shower with temperature-controlled floors, a movable shower head nozzle and a selection of skincare products.

3. Inclusive stopover experience

The airline offers a seamless stopover experience in Dubai with complimentary transit visas, visa application assistance and a well-planned itinerary including hotels, transfers and exclusive discounts on attractions. Passengers also get a 10 percent discount on new flight bookings.

4. Child-friendly service

Emirates goes above and beyond for parents, offering discounted fares for infants and children, complimentary strollers at the airport, specially made meals for kids, organic food options for babies and the option to heat and provide bottles and formula. Onboard, children can cuddle with furry friends, receive activity sheets and enjoy a warm blanket to keep them comfortable and entertained.

5. Amenity kits in every cabin class

The airline offers free amenity kits for all passengers, including those in economy class. These kits contain essentials like socks, eyeshades, a toothbrush and toothpaste and a bookmark. The kits are eco-friendly, made from recycled materials and showcase different regions of Emirates’ network. They introduced the world’s first interactive amenity kit in 2016, allowing passengers to scan their kits and access engaging Augmented Reality (AR) content using the Blippar mobile app.
