The strength of the recovery by airlines following the reopening of most international borders post-pandemic has been reinforced by a strong profit result for the Emirates group in the first-half of its 2022-23 financial year.

The group recorded a net profit of US$1.2 billion across the six months. This followed a $5.5bn loss for the 2020-2021 financial year, the airline’s first in more than three decades, after grounding its fleet and making heavy lay offs during the pandemic.

Separately, Emirates and Gulf Air have signed a codeshare agreement, due to launch in December.

The new agreement will offer connections and expanded choices for Gulf Air customers connecting to Dubai and onwards to Emirates destinations across Europe, Africa, South America and Asia.
