Our Culture and Diversity

The Emirates Group has a lot in common with Dubai. The languages, cultures and ethnic backgrounds that make up our group help us innovate and grow our business in exciting ways.

For example, Emirates was the first to introduce onboard showers. We also believe that the customer experience we offer is really different. And of course, safety is paramount – it’s there in everything we do. In the Middle East, dnata was one of the earliest adopters of electric ramp vehicles and ‘smart’ battery charging. We have also introduced Vaculex loading aids in Dubai, which are safer for staff and more cost effective for customers.

Our Culture and Diversity

We connect people and cultures all over the world, celebrating the differences as well as what we have in common. We connect through shared passions like our sports sponsorships, and we work with businesses to open up new trade opportunities.

When it comes to talent, there are no boundaries. We know, because we find talent everywhere. Give us your talent, commitment and hard work and we’ll give you an exciting world of opportunity. Where people from over 160 countries come together, learn from each other and strengthen our performance. Where you will be a valued member of our global team.

Our initiatives

Our whole industry is committed to reducing aviation’s carbon footprint. As a group, we want to go further than that – and make sustainability and eco-efficiency the cornerstones of all group operations in the air, and on the ground.

We go further than making a difference within the industry. At dnata4good, we come together to reach out and support children in need and endangered wildlife all around the world.

The Emirates Airline Foundation is another way we are actively working towards creating a better world for children. We provide life-changing medical treatment, clean water and educational opportunities.

Our initiatives

Airline Foundation

We believe in giving back, and we do that in a number of ways. Perhaps our biggest effort is the Emirates Airline Foundation, which helps children living in extreme poverty. Maybe that’s an initiative you’d like to support if you join us.
