Emirates showcases new drone video of Dubai from the sky

Posted: 18-Feb-16 10:53

Emirates has funded a new video that allows viewers to see Dubai and other destinations from a unique view from the sky. The "View From Above" campaign is in partnership with Boeing and was filmed using drones, enabling people to see Dubai's landscapes such as the desert, Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab and Atlantis The Palm, from a different perspective.

Emirates showcases new drone video of Dubai from the sky

A joint video campaign between Emirates and Boeing has captured unique footage of some of the world's most beautiful landscapes and landmarks – from the sky.

The new "View From Above" promotion visited 18 countries across five continents, including Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, and is said to be the one of the largest branded aerial photography projects ever carried out using unmanned vehicles.

The film showcases the natural and manmade attractions in Dubai, including the soaring Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Atlantis The Palm, Palm Islands, and colourful hot air balloons flying over the vast desert.

"The beautifully crafted films produced for this project not only feature destinations within our network in a stunning new light, but also utilise innovative technologies in creative ways to produce dramatic footage."

Explained Boutros Boutros, the Senior Vice-President of Emirates. Mr Boutros also commented:

"Our aim is to always connect with our audiences around the world, and we hope that people are inspired by these unique films."

Emirates is the largest airline in the Middle East, offering routes to destinations in more than 70 countries all over the globe.

The Dubai-based carrier began operating commercial flights to Dubai and Middle Eastern destinations in 1985, and since then it has become region's leading airline.

Emirates operates UK flights to Dubai from Manchester, London Heathrow and Birmingham, throughout the year.

Dubai is one of seven United Arab Emirates and it is a hub for both leisure and business travellers. The city boasts unique modern architecture, as well as vast upscale shopping malls, lush parks, ultra-luxury hotels, huge theme parks, Dubai Creek, the Al Fahidi Historical District, and pristine sandy beaches.

The emirate's annual festivals and events attract thousands of foreign holidaymakers, such as the Dubai World Cup, the Dubai International Jazz Festival, the UAE Desert Challenge, and Dubai Summer Surprises.
