2018 a tough year for Emirates
Last year saw Emirates’s profits shrink down to a 69% decline. Their revenues increased by 6% to AED 97.9 billion (US$ 26.7 billion), with the help of steady passenger and cargo performance. However, their year-to-year profit reported a 69% decline, earning a total of AED 871 million (US$ 237 million). Here’s hoping for a better financial year.
