Emirates Signs Deal to Be MCI's Official Airline Partner




Emirates and MCI have announced a Global Alliance which will see Emirates become the official airline of its large and international events. MCI, in turn, will be the preferred Professional Congress Organiser (PCO) for Emirates.

The partnership is expected to help Emirates build a MICE commercial brand in the meetings industry and better cater to business travelers. Thierry Antinori, EVP & chief commercial officer formalized the agreement with MCI Founder & Chairman Roger Tondeur at the Emirates Group Headquarters this week.

“The MICE segment is rapidly growing and we are always looking to connect our customers to what matters to them," Antinori said in a statement. "Our partnership with MCI will allow us to work even more effectively on the complex requirements of the meetings industry making corporate travel more convenient and affordable for our customers.” 

The partnership will see Emirates connecting delegates to key business hubs such as Australia, Asia, Europe and the Americas. With a reach spanning more than 140 cities on six continents, Emirates can provide delegates with one-stop connectivity between continents.

“The partnership between MCI and Emirates will only result in greater convenience for our shared customers," Roger Tondeur declared. "We are responsible for over 4,500 events annually and having Emirates as our official airline partner will streamline travel arrangements for delegates to and from their meetings.” 

The partnership agreement between Emirates and MCI will last for two years.
