Emirates Airline is the national carrier of the emirate of Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Emirates, founded on 25 October 1985, flew its first routes out of Dubai with just two aircraft - a leased Boeing 737 and an Airbus 300 B4.

The airline is a subsidiary of The Emirates Group, which is owned by the government of Dubai's Investment Corporation of Dubai.

Emirates operates with a fleet of wide body equipment, and is the largest operator of the Airbus A380 aircraft type. Emirates, operating from its hub at Dubai International Airport, provides an extensive network of services within the Middle East as well as to Africa, Asia, the South Pacific, North America, Europe and South America. In total, the airline provides flights to 139 destinations.

In 2018/19, the airline carried over 58.6 million passengers and had a fleet of 270 aircraft. The airline employed 60,282 people in 2018/19, with cabin crew representing 35.98% (or 21,691 people) of all people employed by the airline.

Operating Segments:

Emirates Airline splits its services into three categories - air passenger transportation, air cargo transportation and hotel operations. While the company also generates significant revenue from excess baggage, food and beverage services, catering, and the sale of goods, these are seen as additional items to the company's air passenger transportation services.

Passenger: Emirates Airline offers three forms of passenger transportation as part of its primary service line - First class (often includes a private enclosed suite and access to showers, meals and beverages at any time as well as chauffeur pick-up and drop-off at the airport); Business class (a private single seat with ability to often fully recline, as well as priority boarding); Economy class (private entertainment console, meals, and Emirates branded sleep accessories).

Emirates Skycargo: Emirates SkyCargo is the air freight division of Emirates, which started operations in October 1985, the same year Emirates was formed. As of 2019, it is the second largest cargo airline worldwide in terms of the total freight tonne-kilometres flown and the largest in terms of international freight tonne-kilometres flown. Emirates Skycargo operates a fleet of 11 (leased from Dubai Aerospace Enterprise) airplanes and provides cargo transportation services to 50 dedicated destinations. In 2018/19, Emirates Skycargo generated 13,056 million AED in revenue.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
