Emirates Airline has won the ‘Best WiFi’ and ‘Best Food & Beverage’ in the Middle East accolades at the APEX 2020 Regional Passenger Choice Awards held in Singapore.
The ‘Best Food & Beverage’ award recognised Emirates Airline’s regionally inspired cuisine and extensive drinks menu. Each year, more than 110 million meals are served on board the airline’s restaurant in the sky, with the same attention to detail in first, business and economy class.
Emirates Airline runs a round-the-clock kitchen with 1,800 chefs based in Dubai whipping up 12,450 recipes. The airline’s chefs focus on simple, well cooked dishes that emphasise fresh ingredients of the highest quality.
The carrier was also named the airline with the ‘Best WiFi’ in the Middle East. Its entire fleet is WiFi enabled, with WiFi available across all classes – a choice of 20MB complimentary data to use on any app or two hours of unlimited text messaging on popular messaging apps. More than one million passengers log on to WiFi each month and 40 per cent of travellers choose the unlimited free text messaging option to keep in touch with family and friends. Emirates Skywards members enjoy special benefits depending on their membership tier and class of travel, including free unlimited WiFi for all members travelling in first class or business class; and for Gold and Platinum members in economy.
