Dubai’s Emirates to receive final A380 in November this year

The deliveries will bring Emirates’ total fleet of A380s to 118 units

Dubai-based carrier Emirates will receive three more A380 aircraft from Airbus this year. Its last unit on order is scheduled to join its fleet in November 2021, bringing forward the original delivery timeline from June 2022.

All three new A380s to be delivered will be fitted out with Emirates’ premium economy cabin interiors and features including private suites and shower spas in first class, the onboard lounge, fully flat seats in business class, and seatback screens for customers in all cabins.

The deliveries will bring Emirates’ total fleet of A380s to 118 units in November, including six aircraft equipped with premium economy seats in a 4-class configuration.

Sir Tim Clark, president, Emirates Airline, said: “We’ve come to an agreement with Airbus to bring forward the delivery of our remaining A380 orders and have secured financing for these units. These new aircraft will also add more highly sought-after premium economy seats into our inventory, as we prepare to fully launch this cabin product in the coming months.”

“Emirates will continue to be the largest operator of this spacious and modern aircraft for the next two decades, and we’re committed to ensuring that the Emirates A380 experience remains a customer favourite with ongoing investments to enhance our product and services.”

Come October, Emirates will have reinstated its A380 operations on over a dozen routes between Dubai and: Amman, Cairo, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Guangzhou, London Heathrow, Los Angeles, Manchester, Mauritius, Moscow, Munich, New York JFK, Paris, Toronto, Vienna, Washington DC, and Zurich, a statement said.

Emirates’ 4-class A380s are currently operating on its London Heathrow and Paris Charles De Gaulle routes.
