MANILA, Philippines – Filipino business and leisure travelers now again have unparalleled access to the United States of America with Emirates A380’s return to New York last October, providing high-end tourists from Manila and hardworking Filipino professionals a whole new dimension in luxury air travel, comfort, and expediency.
The superjumbo’s return to the Big Apple offers an innovative and magnificent in-flight experience to sophisticated Filipino travelers to New York, a major global center for commerce, finance, media, culture, art, fashion, research, education and entertainment.
“We promised to return the A380 to New York as soon as demand recovered and we have been true to our word,” said Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline. “Against some of the toughest operating conditions ever faced, the results for the Americas have been hugely encouraging.”
Clark said that this achievement reflects Emirates Airline’s success in maintaining its business as usual approach and remaining faithful to its strategy of product and service excellence.
“As we look to 2011 and beyond, Emirates will continue to invest in its products and services to build on the resurgent demand for air travel within the Americas,” Clark added.
“Our plans for the future also include adding new US cities to our four existing gateways: New York, Houston, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.”
“This exceptional service from Emirates will certainly provide pleasure to Filipino travellers traversing North America, a vibrant route for Filipino businessmen, tourists, professionals, and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs),” said Gigie Baroa, Emirates’ Philippines Country Manager.
“The arrival of Emirates A380 in the Big Apple is a gargantuan improvement in linking Manila to New York and Dubai – all vital destinations for business and tourism.”
Baroa noted that Filipino travelers can now fly to the USA in the excellent unsurpassed style and luxury that only Emirates A380 offers, especially since New York is recognized as a second home to numerous Filipinos.
