In addition, the airline will be the first in the world to offer select customers the Apple Vision Pro on board for inflight entertainment. 

Moving forward, the carrier aims to offer flights across Europe, the Middle East, Asia Pacific and the Maldives. Its inaugural flight from Dubai to Milan, Italy will launch later in 2024.
