Emirates pledges funds to bushfire relief in Australia

International Desk :: Emirates has announced its contributions to bushfire relief in Australia. The airline will be donating 10% of all Emirates RED sales on every flight from 17 January until 16 February 2020 and matching this dollar-for-dollar. The proceeds will go towards the recovery and rebuilding efforts taking place in the communities affected across Australia.

“At Emirates we’d like to do our part not only through monetary contributions, but also to use our global reach to help to maintain awareness and support, and to drive donations for recovery and rebuilding efforts,” said Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline

The airline is also supporting its workforce, which includes more than 1,000 Australians, on other employee-led fund-raising initiatives to contribute to the bushfire relief efforts.

In addition to fundraising, Emirates has been waiving flight change fees for Australian residents who have been affected by the bush-fires across the country. The waiver will apply to all residents traveling to or from Australia.

The iconic Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the world’s tallest building was lit up on Wednesday night in a display of the UAE’s support for Australia following the recent bush fires.

Emirates operates 77 flights a week to Australia, including to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, with daily A380 services to select Australian destinations.
