History of Emirates

The idea for Emirates was conceived in the mid-eighties with the financial support of the royal family at the same time that Gulf Air began to cut back its service to Dubai. The first flight took place on the 25th of October, 1985 between Dubai and Karachi. From here, the airline added flights to Bombay and Delhi. The airline was successful almost immediately and new destinations were added to an increasingly large network. A daily non-stop service to London Gatwick began in July of 1987. In the same year cheap flights to Frankfurt and Singapore began. Today Emirates operates non-stop flights all over the world. Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport is used solely by Emirates.
