Emirates Airlines A380-800 arriving at Toronto Lester B. Pearson International Airport (YYZ) from Dubai International Airport (DXB) on a sensational Sunday morning 2019. Founded in 1985, Emirates has grown explosively in size, financial success, and prestige. Currently, Emirates owns over 250 aircraft, denoting it as the largest airline in the Middle East, and, astonishingly, well over 100 of these are Airbus A380-800s, the largest passenger airplane in the world. Apropos of the super jumbo, the airline's inaugural A380 flight to Toronto was in 2009, making its ten-year anniversary 2019 — when this image was captured. Additionally, the UAE's largest airline operates a current fleet of only Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s, despite its massive size, with more diverse orders placed, allowing them to fly to all six inhabited continents. In 2014, the company was named the World's most valuable airline brand. Subsequently, 2016 brought with it the naming of Emirates as the World's Best Airline by SKYTRAX, one of the most prestigious awards in the airliner community. Emirates also received this recognition in 2013. Interestingly, Emirates is not the national flag carrier of the UAE — this is reserved for Etihad Airways, the airline of Abu Dhabi. Emirates is instead recognized as the national airline of Dubai, one of the seven Emirates of the UAE. The company's standard livery was created by Negus & Negus and consists of "Emirates" written in Arabic calligraphy as well as English on the fuselage. Also, the vertical fin sports an intriguing design of the Emirati flag. and the logo, found on the engines, is of also two parts and languages: Emirates written in Arabic calligraphy and English beneath. With their current motto "Fly Better", can you Emirates ask for anymore? Enjoy!
