One of the Middle East Big 3/MEB3 could be crowned the ‘Fastest Airline in the World’ at this year’s Budapest Airport-anna.aero Runway Run following Emirates’ confirmed entry of 31 runners to go head-to-head against former champions Aer Lingus’ 24-strong team (which is personally led by its CEO, Stephen Kavanagh). “We’re soooo excited! Our runners are all single-minded: we just want the 'Fastest Airline in the World' trophy" says Emirates Team Captain, Attila Bors, Contact Centre Operations Officer.
