(Updated August 9, 16:30) Dubai's Emirates Airline has confirmed American actress Jennifer Aniston is set to be the face of its upcoming global advertising campaign.

The 46-year-old 'Friends' star has already shot the campaign for the Dubai airline and is reportedly set to be paid $5 million as part of the deal, unnamed sources told the New York Post's Page Six column at the weekend.

“Jennifer Aniston has shot a high-profile campaign for Emirates as part of this deal, for which she is being paid around $5 million. She will appear across TV and print ads worldwide,” a source was quoted as saying.

Representatives from Aniston were unavailable for comment, however the Dubai carrier confirmed it was currently working with the actress.

"We can confirm that we are working with Ms Jennifer Aniston on a global digital and television campaign. We do not wish to discuss contract details, and more information about the campaign will be unveiled in due course,” Boutros Boutros, Emirates’ Divisional SVP for Corporate Communications, Marketing & Brand, told Arabian Business.

The popular actress, who last week married fellow actor Justin Theroux at their home in Los Angeles, is not the first Hollywood A-list star to front an advertising campaign in the UAE. In March, Australian actress Nicole Kidman was unveiled as the face of Etihad Airways' current marketing campaign.
