Dubai, December 17, 2019 (WAM) – Emirates Airlines today acquired its 123rd Airbus A380 Superjumbo, marking another milestone in Emirates’ unwavering commitment to a 21-year plan.
The delivery of a new aircraft by Emirates Airlines in the midst of an unprecedented global epidemic is a new confirmation of its confidence in the industry’s recovery and strong demand for travel.
Emirates was the first airline to order the A380 at the 2000 Farnborough Air Show. In the weeks leading up to the September 11 attacks, the bold move was an unprecedented challenge to global industry.
Emirates’ commitment was a key element in the launch of a joint venture with European aviation players and a global supply chain to build and market the world’s largest commercial aircraft with full double decks and spacious interior space.
Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airlines, said: “The A380 is unique in many ways.
The aircraft we receive today, registered as “A6-EVS”, is fitted with the latest cabin products including Premium Economy Class, and compared to the first A380 aircraft we received in 2008. Improvements and upgrades we have invested in to ensure a unique and memorable experience for the Emirates A380. ”
Airbus CEO Guillaume Faury said: “The A380 has had a positive impact on the lives of many passengers by setting new standards in flight and travel experience, and I look forward to continuing with Emirates for many years to come. Tested.
During the Dubai Airshow 2021 last November, Emirates announced a major modernization plan, which included fitting 52 A380 aircraft currently in the Premium Economy Class cabin and other upgrades.
