The lab will focus on all areas of service, including customer experience, commercial operations and back-office functions. It will also be used as a clearinghouse for ideas and new technology.

"Emirates Group is committed to being an innovative player and leader in all aspects of the airline industry, including its business, brand, technology, product and people,” Gary Chapman, president of group services and dnata, Emirates Group, said. “We are focused on creating and leveraging big data and new technologies to create a personalized engagement experience for Emirates’ customers."

The lab will give CMU students the opportunity to study using real-world situations and applications.

The official partnership follows Emirates' launching of an innovation lab at Oxford University Oct. 28.
