Webinar: Fireside Chat with Emirates President Sir Tim Clark

This webinar took place June 2, 2020

Over the decades, Sir Tim Clark has been instrumental in making Emirates into the airline it is today, operating one of the largest hubs worldwide in Dubai and becoming a forceful quality competitor for legacy carriers in the markets it serves. Emirates is known for its unique business model of operating only very large aircraft, betting on low seat mile costs and high passenger volumes.

The airline, like the entire industry, has been hit hard by the novel coronavirus pandemic, but now plans to slowly rebuild its network over the summer. Sir Tim Clark is speaking to Aviation Week Network editors Karen Walker and Jens Flottau about the fall-out of COVID-19, the airline’s future strategy and his view on what the industry will look like as it emerges from the crisis.
