Emirates Airline President Tim Clark will retire in June 2020, after 35-years at the airline, the company revealed Tuesday in an internal memo. Dubai International Airport has been the world’s busiest for international passengers since 2014 when it took the spot from London’s Heathrow airport. Emirates is also the biggest buyer of Airbus A380, the world’s largest carrier. They currently have more than 120 Airbus A380 in their fleet.
Emirates President Sir Tim Clark to retire
Tim Clark has a degree in Economics from London University, and he is a Fellow of the Royal Aeronautical Society. He also has an honorary doctorate from the University of Middlesex and an honorary degree from the Newcastle Business School at Northumbria University. In 2014 he was knighted for his service to British prosperity and the aviation industry, so many in the industry refer to him as Sir Tim. Tim Clark joined the airline as a founding member in 1985. He previously worked at Gulf Air and Caledonian Airways. In 2003 he was appointed as the president of Emirates Airlines.
Sir Tim Clark
Having worked closely with Tim since the airline’s inception in 1985, I know firsthand of his deep passion for Emirates – the business, the people, the brand. Through wars, economic recessions, disasters natural or man-made, and various industry upheavals, Tim has ably steered and grown Emirates to its standing today as the world’s largest international airline, and an eminent player in the global airline industry.

During his time in Dubai, Sir Tim Clark has been an integral part of turning Emirates into the largest international airline in the world. In recent years, Sir Tim is most known for pushing his plan to put a shower spa and onboard lounge on the airline’s fleet of Airbus A380’s. Clark in October revealed big plans to expand the Emirates fleet by 30% by the end of 2025. In addition to its order of 30 Boeing jets at the Dubai Air Show in November, the airline announced an order of 50 Airbus A350-900 jets. He will stay on as an advisor to the Emirates Group.
