The senior management team

To build a travel and tourism empire at such staggering speed would not have been possible but for the collective talents of a group of men who have each proven to be leaders in their field of expertise. Almost all of the executives at the helm of the Emirates Group have been with the organisation since its birth and it is their pioneering vision - combined with meticulous planning and brave yet calculated decision making - which has given flight to the fastest growing airline in the world and the Middle East's largest provider of airport and travel services.
