  • OBITUARY: Maurice Flanagan, the expat who helped Emirates take over the world

    News | 08 May 2015 17:13 | Murdo Morrison

    ​Maurice Flanagan, who has died aged 86, caught the Dubai bug when he arrived on a two-year secondment to run the city’s airport and travel operator Dnata in the late-1970s. “Everything looked so promising that I decided to stay,” he recalled two decades later. By taking up the royal family’s invitation in 1985 to launch an upstart state-owned airline called Emirates, the expat Englishman helped change the shape of aviation and ensured his place in the industry’s history.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OBITUARY-Maurice-Flanagan-the-expat-who-helped-Emirates-take-over-the-world-412126/
