Emirates connects up to 22,000 customers each month to Dubai and onwards to exciting destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and China.


In addition, up to 1,500 tonnes of cargo every month is carried around the world and this year the festive cargo leaving Dublin onboard Emirates’ B777’s includes Irish Christmas trees to decorate the world-famous Atlantis the Palm in Dubai; crisps, tea bags, smoked salmon and potatoes for the Irish diaspora in Dubai and  Irish chocolates to India.
