Jaber Mohammed, Emirates’ Country Manager in the Philippines said: “We are extremely delighted to offer our First Class service to our customers in the Philippines. Extending our award-winning service to our customers in Manila is a significant milestone for our operations in the country and as our flights gradually return to pre-pandemic frequency and capacity, the introduction of First Class allows us to provide the full suite of premium services to customers from all three points in the Philippines.  We are pleased to be able to provide a world-class service that Emirates has become renowned for.”
