Emirates to take delivery of 100th Airbus A380

Emirates will cement its position as the world’s largest operator of Airbus A380 superjumbos with the delivery of its 100th aircraft on November 3.

More than 80 million passengers have flown on the double decker aircraft in the nine years since it first joined the Dubai-based carrier’s fleet.

A380s now serve to more than 45 destinations across the Emirates’ network including Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas.

Emirates Airline president, Sir Tim Clark, said: “The A380 has been, and continues to be hugely popular amongst our customers, many of whom deliberately plan their travel so that they can fly on it.

“But we don’t rest on our laurels and continually invest to enhance our product so as to continue offering our customers the best possible inflight experience.

“Our frequent flyers will have noticed countless improvements onboard over the years, ranging from minor updates such as the addition of in-seat USB and HDMI ports, to bigger cabin overhauls where, for instance, we relocated the central overhead luggage bins to create more spacious cabin on the upper deck, and when we introduced bigger and better inflight entertainment systems, amongst many other initiatives.”
