Emirates’ London to Dubai route officially third most profitable in the world

It's a flight that many Dubai expats are familiar with, and now air travel intelligence company OAG has revealed that Emirates’ flight from London Heathrow to Dubai International Airport is the third most profitable airline route in the world.

The popular airline route gathered $796 million (more than Dhs2.9 billion) in the year leading up to March 2019, with the Dubai-based airline being the only one in the Middle East to crack the top five.

The top spot for highest revenue route goes to British Airways, with its flight from London Heathrow to JFK International Airport in New York bringing in $1.15 billion (more than Dhs4 billion).
