Emirates put a woman on top of the world, literally, to celebrate the easing of travel restrictions from its Dubai hub to the UK.

The stunt involved dressing up a professional skydiver as an Emirates cabin crew while standing on top of the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. No green screens were used.

At 828 meters, the Burj Khalifa is 2.6 times taller than the Philippines' tallest building, the Grand Hyatt in Taguig City. 

The main ad has been viewed 3 million times on YouTube while the behind the scnees video has had 2.1 million views one week after upload.

Dubai is one of the world's busiest aviation hubs, connecting Asia to Europe to Africa and to the Americas. Emirates said Dubai was recently placed on Amber alert in the UK, the midpoint of Britain's three-step COVID travel restrictions system.
