Emirates, the premier partner and official airline of Expo 2020 Dubai, recently unveiled the design and visitor experience concepts of its ultra-modern pavilion for the six-month mega event.
Scheduled to take place between October 20, 2020, and April 10, 2021, Expo 2020 Dubai is a must-attend event for visitors with an array of unique experiences at 190 country pavilions, and a packed entertainment program with daily live events, parades, music and cultural festivals, inspiring talks, workshops and more.
As announced by the airline, the pavilion’s design and visitor experience will utilize interactive technologies and design thinking focusing on the future of commercial aviation.
According to Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group, the aim of the airline’s pavilion is to stimulate connections, create experiences and foster creativity and innovation, inspiring a commitment for a better future.
“The economic impact of the transport, hospitality and tourism sector will contribute AED16.4 billion to the UAE economy, underscoring the vital role these industries play in generating economic value by bringing people together and breaking down barriers,” he said.
Guided by the three themes of Expo 2020 Dubai: mobility, opportunity and sustainability, the Emirates pavilion is designed to reflect the dynamic lines of aircraft wings.
Furthermore, the 3,300sqm three-storey multi-function structure will be located in close proximity to the UAE Pavilion and within walking distance of the Al Wasl Pavilion, the epicentre of the Expo 2020 Dubai site.
It will have the capacity to welcome more than 56,000 visitors per month.
Of the 192 countries that have confirmed their participation in Expo 2020, Emirates will help facilitate and offer connectivity with direct flights to 67 of participating countries.
Furthermore, the airline continues to evaluate opportunities for new flight services to unserved or under-served markets to stimulate traffic and grow passenger links to Dubai.
