Emirates is back in action at Roland-Garros 2024

DUBAI, May 17, 2024

Emirates will be rolling out exciting initiatives on-ground at Stade Roland-Garros, Paris, where the 2024 French Open will be played from May 20-June 9.

Taking the world of tennis to new heights, the airline said it is back on the clay courts for the twelfth consecutive year as Official Airline and Premium Partner. 

The on-ground activities will enable fans to snap pictures, play games, and capture memories at Emirates’ interactive photo-booth.

Fans will be offered complimentary ice-cream on 28 May and 5 June at Jardin des Mousquetaires; and a Dilmah Tea tasting experience to sip on a selection of teas available onboard.

Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Deputy President and Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We’re happy to be back on the clay court this year, and to continue growing our presence in the world of tennis.

“Emirates is renowned for serving world-class experiences, and this year will be no different at Roland-Garros. We look forward to engaging with fans from all over the world and to offering top-notch sporting experiences on-ground.”

The airline will also serve “fly better” experiences to Roland-Garros with its long-standing partner, Moët Hennessy. Visitors to the hospitality suite will enjoy an exquisite wine tasting experience, including a range of Dom Perignon expressions such as Prestige Vasque, Moët Imperial Brut, and Rock Angel from Chateau d’Esclans.

Emirates will also be a presenting partner of the Trophée des Légendes, which takes place from June 4-9, 2024. 

The airline will offer children from a local organisation, “Fête le Mur” an exclusive experience. Fête le Mur’s mission is to provide children from disadvantaged neighbourhoods a chance to partake in sporting activities, including tennis lessons.

On each day, one child will be able to participate in the Trophée des Légendes and “toss the coin” to kick-off the legend matches, meet renowned tennis legends, and take images with Emirates’ friendly cabin crew.
