#Traveltradetogether

Emirates has announced Kilkenny native, Anita Thomas, as the country manager for the airline in Ireland.

Anita has been central to the growth and success of the Irish operation having joined Emirates when it launched its first flight between Dublin and Dubai in January 2012.

Anita Thomas succeeds Enda Corneille and thereafter interim country manager, Thani Al Ansari and brings significant experience to the role having worked in the aviation industry for more than 30 years.  Anita started her career in Ryanair in 1992 and has worked for a number of international carriers in the UK and Ireland.

Adnan Kazim, Chief Commercial Officer at Emirates said: This is a well-deserved promotion for a professional that has been with Emirates on every step of its journey in Ireland.  Anita has the expertise, customer relationships and unique insight that will complement our ambition for a market that is very important to our global operations. Having started with the team as a sales executive, Anita’s appointment is an excellent example of the opportunities for growth with the world’s largest airline.”

Over the past ten years, Anita has helped to grow Emirates’ corporate business in Ireland, developing strong relationships with the travel trade as well as corporate customers.  She will be responsible for sales performance across both passenger and cargo traffic along with airport operations in Dublin.

Speaking about her new role as country manager for Emirates in Ireland Anita Thomas said, “We have a fantastic team on the ground in Ireland and it’s a great honour to be a part of and now to lead such a passionate and ambitious group. I’m really looking forward to further realising the potential within the Irish market and promoting not only Emirates’ extensive global network, but also showcasing the onboard product to both existing as well as new customers in our market.”

Emirates’ extensive network spans more than 150 destinations, across six continents with two daily departures from Dublin to Dubai onboard a state-of-the art Boeing 777.
