Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, celebrated 15 years of operations to San Francisco, a top-five route in its global network. Since 2008, Emirates has flown over 3.4 million passengers and transported 44,000+ tons of cargo on 9,900 flights.

The inaugural “world’s longest green flight” in 2008 pioneered fuel-saving measures, now integrated into Emirates’ eco-friendly practices. These include a ‘drywash’ technique, using electrical power on the ground, and recycling consumables.
