Emirates has marked one of its busiest northern summers, carrying over 14 million passengers with average seat load factors exceeding 80% across its global network between June and August.
Looking at the coming months, Emirates’ booking trends show unabated demand for international travel across its network.
This month has marked 20 years of Emirates flying to New Zealand, as the airline celebrates amid its strongest presence in the market to date.
Clients have been quick to embrace Emirates’ A380 premium economy class, say a small group of agents who checked out the cabin (and the new look aircraft it is part of) this month.
Vikas Sarin, of House of Travel Milford, says many of the customers purchasing premium economy have previously experienced that class of travel and have been attracted to the different product, maybe because of connectivity or availability.
Emirates is already receiving significant support from the New Zealand trade for its new premium economy product (available from AKL in January, CHC in March) as well as enthusiasm around the return to this market of the A380, says Chris Lethbridge, regional manager New Zealand for the airline.

Global Travel Network (GTN) turned three last week.
Emirates is bringing an early Hogmanay treat for New Zealanders heading to Scotland next year with a $1599 return fare to Edinburgh, among other earlybird fare offers covering its Europe network.
Emirates has refreshed its premium offering with products for Kiwis travelling in first and business class.
Conducting four trade famils in the first week of operation illustrates how importantly Emirates regards its early education of travel agents when it comes to its Auckland – Denpasar (Bali) – Dubai service, says the airline’s regional manager New Zealand, Chris Lethbridge.
