After ranking first place in the last five years, Emirates' brand value fell to almost 6.3 billion U.S. dollars and ranked only fourth place in 2020. The company was founded in 1985 in Dubai and is a subsidiary of the Emirates Group. In the fiscal year of 2018/2019, Emirates Airlines carried 58.6 million passengers and over 2.6 million metric tons of cargo. In response to passenger traffic growth, the carrier has been adding a large number of new models to its fleet. The Airbus Group provided Emirates with 106 jets, including 55 A380 aircraft between January and November 30, 2014.

The company’s major competitors include Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines of the United States, and new rivals are on the horizon. The market share of low-cost carriers and regional airlines such as Ireland’s Ryanair is on the rise. These companies have revolutionized the commercial airline business with the introduction of innovative low-fare business models, which are attracting a growing customer base. Thanks to improved customer service and a fall in oil prices, Ryanair’s full-year post-tax profit amounted to 885 million euros.
