The station clinched the £800,000 sponsorship with research showing it reaches more businessmen than any quality paper or other radio station. Emirates wanted to push its long-haul business travel offering.

Emirates' media agency MediaCom brokered the sponsorship, which includes a high frequency of seven messages a day.

Ian Mullins, associate director of MediaCom, said: "Classic FM has really answered our brief superbly by allowing us to modify the way the business bulletins are broadcast to fit with the Emirates messaging. This brilliantly enhances our communication among a very media savvy and service-orientated audience."

Classic FM has separately launched an "Ad of the quarter" prize. Listeners nominate ads to a shortlist from which a winner is selected by the station's consumer panel, led by Baron Smith of Finsbury, the former secretary of state for culture, media and sport.

The first award, for the March-May quarter, is to Emirates and its creative agency Leagas Delaney for its campaign featuring the writer and comedian Chris Langham.
