Emirates becomes a strategic partner of Cruise Baltic
Cruise Baltic announced that Emirates has become a strategic partner. Instrumental in effecting the formation of this new, joint agreement is Claus Bødker, director, Cruise Baltic, working in close co-­‐operation with Emirates’ management in both Copenhagen and Dubai.

Emirates fly to more than 150 destinations on six continents, with routes to Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm in the Baltic Sea region.

'By networking together, implementing new, joint marketing initiatives and targeting the same source markets - including those of Asia and Australia, which are "booming"‐ I am confident that we can reach our respective objectives of attracting
even more cruise visitors to the Baltic Sea region,' commented Bødker.

Paul Starrs, svp global sales, Emirates (Dubai) commented: 'For several years Emirates has been active within the cruise industry sector, however, our commitment to Cruise Baltic reflects our need to focus on priority markets, as well as the more traditional. We can combine our resources and together meet any challenges facing the airline and cruise industry; and with our complementary premium products, will look to secure the highest standards of guest experience.'

Cruise Baltic currently represents 29 destinations across the Baltic region.
