Emirates delivers another lesson in airnomics in Philippines
One of the biggest ancillary benefits from the rise of Emirates as an airline empire has been to rattle the insularity of airline analysts in Europe, North America and …. Australia.
Today’s lesson is about the Philippines, specifically, about Emirates launching daily flights this October to Clark in central Luzon, in addition to its triple daily services between Dubai and Manila.
If we wish to follow the rise of new large scale economies in the world, in a very different and often more exciting world than one seen with western eyes, watching where Emirates is directing its massive and growing fleets of A380s and in this case Boeing 777s is perhaps as good and fast a signpost as any.
Subject of course to air treaty realities, the places to watch in our hemisphere range from eastern Siberia (Vladivostok) and Mongolia in the far north to Vietnam, more of Indonesia and Brunei, and PNG and Fiji closer to home. Not tomorrow, but well within 10 years.
