Nabil joined Emirates in 1990. During his 16-year long tenure, he has overseen some of the airline's most crucial markets including the UAE, United Kingdom and India. Nabil is instrumental in boosting Emirates' India presence from a two-city to an eight-gateway operation, served presently by 74 weekly flights.
