Emirates Airlines have always promoted itself as a luxurious carrier with the best service an airline can offer. On Wednesday, the company's social media account on Twitter posted a breath-taking video of its airplane making a landing.
The video has caught the imagination of several netizens who are labelling the scene as majestic and epic. The video shows the airplane swoosh out of foamy white clouds gradually gliding towards the land. The entire shot looks ethereal almost as though the plane has landed from heaven.
Emirates, the flagship carrier of Dubai, flies to nine destinations in India and has also entered into a preliminary pact for a codeshare with low-cost carrier SpiceJet. "The bilateral (air traffic) rights between India and Dubai is the biggest single problem. Now, the elections are over and the Modi government is back in power. I am hoping that the talks would (between India and Dubai) reopen," Emirates Airline President Tim Clark said in June.
Emirates launched flights to Delhi and Mumbai from Dubai in 1985. Currently, it flies to nine Indian destinations -- Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram - with more than 170 weekly flights.
