DUBAI, 1st September (WAM) – Emirates Airlines will receive 3 new Airbus A380 aircraft until the end of the year, as the last aircraft of this type will join its fleet next November, ahead of the original delivery date that was scheduled for June 2022.
With the delivery of the three new aircraft, the Emirates A380 fleet will reach 118 aircraft in November, including six aircraft equipped with premium economy class seats in four classes.
Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline, said: “We have reached an agreement with Airbus to advance delivery dates for our remaining A380 orders and have completed financing arrangements. As we prepare to launch our full Premium Economy product over the next few months, the new aircraft will add more seats in this class. Which is very popular with our customers.
Clark added that Emirates will remain the largest operator of this giant and modern aircraft for the next two decades and is committed to ensuring that the Emirates A380 experience remains a favorite among customers thanks to our continuous investment in everything that enhances our products and services.”
With the easing of travel restrictions and the global spread of “Covid-19” vaccines, Emirates will restart its A380 aircraft to more destinations that it served before the pandemic, and next October this double-decker aircraft will serve flights to Amman, Cairo, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Guangzhou, London Heathrow, Los Angeles and Manchester Mauritius, Moscow, Munich, New York, JFK, Paris, Toronto, Vienna, Washington DC and Zurich.
The Emirates A380 now operates in four classes on the London Heathrow and Paris Charles de Gaulle routes.
