December 30. Aviation giant Emirates said Thursday it expects business to grow next year despite the surge in global coronavirus cases fuelled by the Omicron variant.
“Despite the recent rise of the Omicron variant and the slight slowdown it brought to our network, we are going into 2022 with optimism,” said Emirates CEO Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum.
Emirates President Tim Clark said in November that the carrier expects to return to profitability “in the next 18 months”.
The carrier posted an April-September loss of $1.6 billion, compared with losses of $3.4 billion during the same period in 2020.
