The firm has noted a rise in passenger traffic on flights to Dubai.
Net income climbed to $575 million (£362 million) for the six months to the end of September when compared to $343 million the previous year.
The load factor increased to 80 per cent, while revenue and other operating income increased 17 per cent to $10.4 billion.
Emirates Group encompasses the Emirates airline and ground-handling unit Dnata.
These figures come after the group added 15 new routes since September last year.
Last month, it also struck a deal with Qantas on routes between European nations and Australia via its Dubai airport, replacing Singapore as the stopover point.
Chairman and chief executive officer Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed al-Maktoum said in a statement: “Emirates remained focused on its growth and global expansion despite on-going fluctuating exchange rates and ever lingering high fuel prices which accounted for 39 percent of our expenditures.”
