Emirates Fetes Nigerian Children with Unique Services On Board Flight


Major Middle East carrier, Emirates Airlines has said that Nigerian children felt honoured as it recently feted them during the last Children’s Day on May 27, which those that participated described as memorable.

The event was organised at the Silverbird Cinemas, located at Ikeja City Mall, the children watched a blockbuster movie with the Emirates Regional Manager West Africa, Mr. Afzal Parambil, and also had several photographs with him. Selected children were also dressed in the Emirates pilot and cabin crew uniforms. The presence of a beautiful cake and an improvised aircraft portrayed the brand in good light, and wowed the children whom were keen on having a snap shot with them. There were lots of food, drinks, popcorn, and souvenirs for the kids and their parents.

The airline said the children are recognized as important part of the society, so “Children’s Day focuses on the significance of loving, accepting and appreciating children.”

The airline also said it has improved passengers’ experience on-board its flights, noting that most airlines have First class, Business class and Economy class sections, and yearn to give passengers treats according to the class of ticket of travel.

“This has often made passengers to crave for a higher class of ticket. Economy class section has always had a lesser treat compared to the First and Business Class, thus people often aspire for the latter because of the perception of the level of comfort they will get, as long as they have the financial stamina to walk the talk. However, in order to make Economic class passengers feel elated, airlines have since started raising their games in this section of the airline.

“In 1992, Emirates was the first airline to introduce individual television screens in Economy Class, and has since continued its journey of innovation. Today, customers enjoy personal seatback monitors with over 2,500 channels of news and entertainment programming, including text messaging, telephone, and internet access. Every meal has been planned and prepared with meticulous care,” the airline said.

It noted that these high standards in catering have consistently been ranked as leading in international travel awards and surveys. Emirates fuels conversations and capture the spirit and excitement of starting a new journey. With attention to detail in every product and service, “the Emirates Economy Class experience is truly exceptional.”
