An aerial adventure of a lifetime
The adventure begins at the state-of-the-art “Spirit of the Emirates” terminal where guests will be given a warm VIP welcome and can enjoy luxury hospitality in our lounges and international restaurants, before being briefed on flying procedures prior to take-off. The terminal itself is a creation of Dubai based architects, Whitespace, whose mantra is in designing ‘pragmatic utopian architecture’, to which the terminal lives up to by exuding innovation and vitality with bright, contemporary spaces, and thoughtful architectural details throughout.
Prior to boarding, our guests are briefed on flying procedures, and receive an Augmented Reality handset to highlight the city’s iconic landmarks and places of interest during their journey.
Take-off and flight on the “Spirit of the Emirates” is unlike any other flying experience. As the airship makes its silent ascent to 1,500 feet, the feeling of calmness and serenity of floating in clear skies comes to the fore. Flying at this low altitude, the landscape below becomes a living museum, with every detail appreciated from a whole new perspective.
One more thrill is in store on the “Spirit of the Emirates” adventure, during the flight passengers are able to reach out through an open window to take snapshots of their experience – and physically touch the clouds!
