Emirates interested in low-cost partners in Africa

Emirates SVP commercial operations for Africa Jean-Luc Grillet said the airline is interested in forging partnerships with LCCs in Africa, according to a Business Daily report. Mr Grillet said, "we are used to a very strong partnership with low cost carriers because they complement our services. We are interested in forging such partnerships here in Africa. Africa...is one of the few areas to record growth. Obviously this presents a real opportunity for us in terms of both passenger and cargo business."
