We are looking forward to continuing our support of the Australian arts and culture scene, connecting with Australians and embracing the flourishing local and international art community” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ Divisional Vice President, Australasia
Executive Director of Adelaide Festival Rob Brookman AM welcomed Emirates commitment: “Emirates have been an outstanding and committed partner for Adelaide Festival over the last 7 years and we are delighted that they have chosen to extend that partnership to ten years in all. With their volume of services direct to Adelaide and huge number of destinations connected to the great air-transport hub of Dubai, Emirates are a brilliant fit for a festival that brings artists from a huge range of countries. And our artists love the fabulous service on board!”
