Dubai-based airline Emirates is no stranger to going above and beyond for luxury needs of passengers. Their latest venture is a private jet service, the Emirates Executive, for up to 19 passengers in a private Airbus A319.
Emirates have introduced luxury features in their planes before - take, for example, the on-board shisha service that they announced in May. Passengers have another opulent Emirates option to fly with now - the Emirates Executive.
The jet features 10 first-class sleeping suites at the rear of the plane, as well as a a marble shower spa with heated flooring, full Emirates catering options and an exclusive dining/working lounge. The lounge contains a work and rest area, with two large sofas and two 42" high definition LCD screens, as well as mechanically activated tables. Video conferencing services are available, as well as high-speed internet connectivity and mobile phone access.
Adnan Kazim, Emirates' Divisional Senior Vice-President of Planning, Aeropolitical and Industry Affairs said, "Emirates Executive elevates the high standards and quality of Emirates that our customers have come to expect, with the flexibility and luxury that can only be offered by a private chartered flight. We have seen an increasing demand in the private travel segment, especially in the Middle East and Europe as well as in markets such as India, Russia and China, and with Emirates Executive and the launch of its website, we are looking to tap into this niche market with the high quality of service and attention to detail associated with Emirates.”
