As Emirates president Sir Tim Clark prepares to retire from his full-time role, he sits down with Andreas Spaeth to reflect on a fascinating 50 years in the airline business
The stately office of Emirates Airline president Sir Tim Clark is fitting of his grand title. Located on the top floor of the airline’s huge headquarters by Dubai International Airport, it lies within a complex so vast that it has its very own Metro station. While the size and interior of Sir Tim’s office is clearly fit for any company president, the aviation supremo hasn’t lost touch with his core passion or his peers. Indeed, he is one of the few bosses that is often asked for selfies by other airline executives when attending global summits and conferences.
