Emirates, the nation's most valued airline brand, announced on their Insta page (very fittingly) that they have reached a whopping 1 million Insta followers. This awesome achievement marks Emirates' position as the largest transportation brand on Instagram. In addition to this milestone, Emirates is also the first airline brand to reach 500,000 followers on LinkdIn which  basically positions it as the most popular travel brand in the world on the social platform.

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Instagram is a great platform for us to share inspiring visual content about our people, interesting aspects of our operations, places to see, and things to do while travelling. Emirates has grown its Instagram following organically, and we are proud to hit the 1 million followers milestone

To celebrate, Emirates have launched a month-long WORLD-WIDE competition

And also to thank its one million followers, flights and goodie bags will be up for grabs!

How do you participate?

That's easy, simply upload a photo or video on Instagram featuring Emirates, using the hashtag #ILoveEmirates and give @emirates a quick mention. You'll be in with a chance of winning free economy class tickets to any of Emirates' 150 destinations and there are five goodie bags filled to the brim with Emirates products and merchandise.

And since we're one of those one million followers, we thought we'd show you some of our favourite Emirates Insta posts:
