Emirates airline expects to reach 100 per cent capacity and network next year as the aviation sector continues to recover at an exponential pace in the post- pandemic period.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ chief commercial officer, Emirates said,“We managed to put almost 80 per cent of capacity back to where it was pre-Covid time and also managed to recover almost 95 per cent of our network. We will continue to deploy more aircraft on the network.”
On the sidelines of the Dubai-based carrier’s first ‘Emirates World’ retail store experience, Kasim said that customers can buy its merchandise and travel accessories as well as enjoy a virtual experience of the airline’s onboard products before buying them from the store.
“We are looking to achieve 100 per cent capacity and network level by the end of next year. We are going through a major retrofit of the aircraft that is taking away some of the aircraft. Our objective is to do it as soon as we can,” added Kazim.
