Many of the expected passengers will be arriving into Dubai, especially after the news that the UK has moved the UAE from the red list to amber. In case you missed it, Emirates Airline pulled off an incredible death-defying stunt to celebrate the announcement.
They enlisted the help of a ‘cabin crew’ (actually skydiver and stuntwoman, Nicole Smith-Ludvik) to stand on top of Burj Khalifa. Nicole and the entire production team undertook a lot of rigorous planning to pull of the stunt, which took place 828 metres above ground.
