Emirates Rolls Out Luxury Perks As Official Airline of The US Open
Emirates is once again setting the standard when it comes to sports travel and tourism. For the 11th year in a row, the airline reigns as the Official Airline of the US Open Tennis Championships from August 29 to September 11, 2022. The airline is the world’s largest international airline and has served guests traveling to the US Open since 2012.
Using its influence to spread a love for tennis and athleticism globally, Emirates is turning things up a notch this season. The airline is taking its tennis aficionado beyond the skies and joining eventgoers courtside. From luxury suites and event live streams to deluxe lounges in the sky, Emirates is showing out in more ways than one.
If the US Open is on your bucket list this travel season, here are a few perks you’ll get only if you fly with Emirates.
A Guide Throughout the US Open
Emirates is guiding travelers through an epic US Open experience from beginning to end. The airline will be hosting its luxury suite again this year. A favorite choice amongst famous influencers and celebrities, the Emirates US Open suite is the epitome of luxury and white glove service the airline is known for. In addition to champagne and whiskey tastings, guests can also dine on an array of delicious international dishes as they enjoy the matches.
If guests grow tired of the suite, the Emirates Sports Cafes has the perfect ambiance to kick back and enjoy live tennis. The airline also has a special vendor booth set up at the event to showcase the comfort of its Premium Economy seats. They’ll also have a chance to win an Emirates seat cushion.
Following the match-ups, guests can attend the Emirates Ball Flight to collect an autographed ball from some of their favorite tennis players. Airline staff, along with the winning player, will hit three signed tennis balls into the stand after each match through the end of the quarter-finals.
If that isn’t enough, Emirates has also partnered with broadcaster PIX 11 and the show NY Living to give away 60 US Open tickets to tennis lovers looking to sit courtside this season.
Live Coverage Straight From Queens
If you don’t plan on attending the US Open, Emirates has you covered so you’ll never miss a beat. The airlines will be broadcasting updates and coverage of the matches throughout the competition from its social media accounts.
Fans can also tune into The Mixer. Broadcasted live from the Emirates suite and produced by the United States Tennis Association, this virtual talk show takes the US Open from Queens to your living room. Viewers will get direct access to everything happening in the Emirate suite, celebrity sightings, and more.
The championship will also be posting daily “Play of the Day” videos presented by Emirates that online users can find by searching the hashtag #EmiratesFlyBetterMoments.
