Located at the Hume Street office in Dublin, Stephen will support Country Manager Margaret Shannon and her team in the ongoing development of relationships with leisure travel agents and tour operators in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, as well as being a key point of contact for tourist boards.

Margaret Shannon said: “Stephen is a natural communicator and is already proving to be a great asset to the team. His enthusiasm is infectious and together with his solid industry experience, we see a great future for him with Emirates. We are very pleased to welcome Stephen to the team as we gear up for a very busy season of bookings for the Irish market.”

Stephen said: “It’s an exciting time for me to join Emirates as we count down to the launch of the double daily Dublin-Dubai connection in September. I have always been very passionate about the aviation industry and, more than anything, I am looking forward to representing a brand that really stands out in terms of product and service.”

Emirates now has a dedicated team of 26 based in Dublin between the airport and the Dublin reservations office.
