  3. 3. EMIRATES: BACKGROUND (CONT.)  Gulf Air started cutting back its services to Dubai in the mid-1980s; consequently, Emirates was founded in March 1985 with support from Dubai’s royal family, with Pakistan International Airlines supplying two of the airline’s first aircraft on wet-lease.  Was required to function independent of government subsidies, aside from $10 million in start-up capital.  Became led by Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, its present chairman.  Expanded both its fleet and its destinations in the years after its establishment.  Moved all operations at Dubai International Airport to Terminal 3 in October 2008, to maintain its rapid expansion and enlargement plans.  Operates a diverse fleet of Airbus and Boeing wide-body aircraft; one of the few airlines to operate an all-wide-body aircraft fleet, of which the centre is the Boeing 777.  Also has orders for 140 Airbus A380s, for which it became the second operator after Singapore Airlines.  Is an industry bellwether for aircraft acquirements; bought 130 aircraft in 2007 alone.  Has advanced a strong brand name as a leader in the aviation industry (especially in regards to service excellence) and its very quick growth, together with reliable productivity.  Has won many awards; was ranked 8th by Air Transport World for “Airline of the Year” in 2012.  The award is given on gratitude of its pledge to safety and operational excellence, customer service trendsetters, and economic condition, including a 25-year uninterrupted annual revenue.  Rated as a four-star airline by aviation consultancy group Skytrax.  Was voted “Airline of the Year” in 2013.
