Emirates Airline has activated 76 different websites sites in 10 different languages across six continents simultaneously, in a coordinated re-launch of its website.
Emirates.com uses the latest internet and e-commerce technology and provides passengers with more features and options when making their travel arrangements online.
Passengers can now key in their route, find out what aircraft they are flying on, what entertainment they can enjoy whilst onboard, explore virtual tours of the in-flight products and even watch trailers of Hollywood blockbusters they can expect to see during the flight.
One of the major advantages of the new site is the flight search and pricing system. Rather than just being presented with one price for a preferred time, passengers will be shown seat availability and prices for seven days either side of their requested travel date.
With the airline’s internet sales doubling year on year, Emirates airline is again moving to meet its customers’ online appetite by allowing them to purchase tickets, confirm a booking, check-in online and choose their preferred seat.
Executive Vice President, Commercial Operations Worldwide, Ghaith Al Ghaith, said, “Emirates' internet sales are rapidly increasing and the new website extends our global reach, giving us greater opportunities for revenue generation.
“Over the next five years, I anticipate that the number of new and existing customers booking flights through our website will increase dramatically.
He added, “In re-creating the site, we have handed much more control to our customers and allowed them to feel the Emirates experience from their homes, offices and hotels, long before they board one of our modern aircraft.”
