Our responsibility programme has been built on four key pillars: humanitarian aid, global education initiatives, safe and stable housing for children in need and empowerment through development.

As the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, and a prominent airline in the global aviation community, we are focused to supporting community and charity initiatives at home in the UAE and across our network, including in times of disaster.

We support several local and international charities, including the Emirates Red Crescent who are a key partner.

Recognising our staff’s commitment to charity, there are several corporate volunteering programmes to provide opportunities for local and international community engagement. Our staff regularly gather to raise funds and awareness for causes that are meaningful to them, and also take the initiative to volunteer with local charities independently.              

We are committed in supporting relief and recovery efforts to strengthen communities after disasters, and donate our own assets as well as engaging our guests through advocacy and awareness.

Our four-part CSR pillar framework outlines our responsibility to the communities and maximise the impact of our contribution and provide optimal benefit to the beneficiaries:
