Emirates, the renowned Dubai-based airline, is gearing up to introduce a distinctive capsule collection of luggage, bags, and accessories. This limited-edition assortment goes beyond the ordinary, embodying Emirates’ commitment to innovation and sustainable practices. The materials used in this collection are sourced from upcycled aircraft. It’s a testament to their dedication to environmental responsibility.

Crafting Elegance from Aircraft Materials
The limited-edition range encompasses a diverse selection of travel essentials. The list includes merch like suitcases, backpacks, handbags, cardholders, toiletry bags, belts, and shoes. These specifically crafted items are the handiwork of Emirates tailors. What makes this collection truly exceptional is that the materials have been repurposed from iconic aircraft such as the Emirates A380.
Surprising Materials Make an Appearance
In a remarkable twist, this collection features materials that have been creatively repurposed from the aircraft’s components. Aluminium headrests, leather from A380 onboard lounge couches, seatbelts, and even fabric from the Captain’s seat are all integrated into these unique pieces. The sustainable approach is evident as more than 14,000 kilograms of materials have already been reclaimed from 16 retrofitted aircraft. The potential for this project to recover up to 270 kilograms of leather and 627 kilograms of seat fabric per retrofitted aircraft is a testament to their commitment to recycling.

Customers have the opportunity to further personalize their items. Upon request, exclusive bags, suitcases, or document holders can be adorned with laser engravings, ensuring that each piece is truly one-of-a-kind. The materials used in the collection are of the highest quality. These materials undergo meticulous cleaning and conditioning, along with thorough disinfection, to ensure they turn into exceptional pieces.
A Noble Cause
The limited-edition range will hit the shelves in 2024, exclusively available at Emirates Official Stores. This initiative stands out as all proceeds from selling these unique items will go towards assisting children in need through the Emirates Airline Foundation. Showcasing a selection of bags and accessories, the Dubai Airshow in DWC will feature these items from November 13 to 17, appealing to aviation enthusiasts and fashion-forward individuals.

Emirates’ long-haul flights globally now offer an enhanced experience for Premium Economy and Economy Class passengers with brand-new complimentary amenity kits. Collaborating with United for Wildlife, these kits spotlight eight of the planet’s most endangered species.
The preservation of wildlife and habitats stands as a central tenet within the Emirates Environmental Sustainability Framework. This latest range of amenity kits not only emphasizes Emirates’ enduring partnership with United for Wildlife but also underscores the airline’s dedication to promoting awareness about endangered species. Furthermore, it reinforces the commitment to combat illegal wildlife trade. Featuring animals such as the green sea turtle, African elephant, blue macaw, gorilla, hammerhead shark, lion, pangolin, and black rhino, these creatures are among the most trafficked globally. The imagery adorns the kit pouches and bookmarks, delivering a powerful message.
This initiative presents a remarkable opportunity for individuals to own a piece of aviation history. Aviation enthusiasts can soon register their interest on the Emirates Store. It’s essential to note that these exclusive pieces are available in limited quantities.
