Emirates Airlines under the spotlight

30 October 2009, Index on Censorship report that Al Arabiya fired American journalist Courtney C Radsch within 24 hours of her uncovering a story about breaches of safety at Emirates Airlines. The article focused on pilot fatigue in the airline.

Journalists are discouraged from reporting on Emirates Airlines, as its chief executive, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, is also the head of the aviation authority and a member of the country’s ruling family.
