(MENAFN) Emirates airline’s President, Tim Clark, stated that the carrier will consider any new tie-up that would add value to the company, reported Emirates 24/7.

Clark said that the airline, which inked a partnership agreement with Australia’s Qantas, will evaluate any partnership that benefits the UAE-based carrier, such as the one with Qantas.
