@jemurillo0705:

ATL is far away from having most international destinations. In fact it is FRA.

Emirates orders 32 additional A380s



Today marks another significant milestone in Emirates' history. At the Berlin Air Show we placed an order for 32 additional Airbus A380s in a deal worth US$11.5 billion (Dhs42.2 billion) at list prices. Our total firm order for the A380 now stands at 90 aircraft.

The agreement was witnessed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other dignitaries. Besides the order placed today, Emirates has 143 aircraft - 48 A380s, 70 A350s, 18 Boeing 777-300s and seven Boeing freighters - on order, worth more than US$48 billion. We took delivery of our 10th A380 yesterday.

Having ordered 58 previously, we were already the largest customer for the A380. You might wonder: do we really need more?

The A380 is the flagship of our fleet and a mainstay of our customer-centric strategy. Customer feedback has been phenomenal - they enjoy the comfort, the innovative features onboard, the quiet flight and its environmental efficiencies.

Emirates is poised on the threshold of an interesting and challenging period in aviation history. We are the second largest airline in the world on two counts - revenue passenger kilometres (RPKM) and available seat kilometres (ASKM). Our intent is two-fold: to become the world's leading airline and to enhance Dubai's role as the global gateway connecting any two points on the planet.

Our strategy of growth combined with stability and our focus on investing in the latest technology translates to enhanced opportunities, job fulfilment and fast tracked career progression for all our employees and internal stakeholders. The bigger we get, the better is our future, as we can truly leverage our economies of scale.

Today symbolises another proud and prudent moment for the Emirates Group. As we increasingly reach for the skies, I thank you and dedicate our success to your commitment and energy. I'm counting on you to take us to new heights.

Emirates orders a further 32 Airbus A380s

8 June 2010

Dubai based Emirates Airline has ordered a further 32 A380s from Airbus, taking their total firm orders for the iconic flagship of the 21st century to 90 aircraft. The order has a list price of US$ 11.5 billion.

The agreement was signed in a ceremony today at the Berlin Air Show witnessed by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, by Emirates Airline Group Chairman and CEO His Highness Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, and Airbus President and CEO Tom Enders

“This latest order, adding to 58 A380s previously ordered, affirms Emirates’ strategy to become a world leading carrier and to further establish Dubai as a central gateway to worldwide air travel. The A380 is our flagship in terms of passenger comfort, innovation, operating and environmental efficiency and revenue generation. Our latest commitment signals Emirates’ confidence in the growth to come in a thriving aviation sector,” said H.H.Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al- Maktoum.

“Emirates has supported the development of the A380 from the earliest days, and today’s order - the single largest A380 order ever - is the best endorsement I can imagine. On behalf of all of us at Airbus, we thank Emirates for their confidence and support. The A380 is indeed a remarkable eco-efficient aircraft, a profit generator for airlines and a great flying experience for passengers,” said Tom Enders.

Following delivery of their first A380 in July 2008, Emirates now operates ten aircraft serving eight international destinations including London Heathrow, Toronto, Paris, Jeddah, Bangkok, Seoul, Sydney and Auckland. The airline expects the list of destinations to increase as more and more airports around the world are A380 ready. Emirates’ tenth A380, received on 7 June 2010, is on static display at the ILA Berlin Air Show. All Emirates’ A380 are powered by Engine Alliance GP7200 engines and delivered from Hamburg. In Germany more than 30 major suppliers are directly feeding into the A380 programme. The A380 programme alone adds an estimated 40,000 direct, indirect and induced German jobs.

The world’s largest passenger aircraft, the Airbus A380, is also the quietest and most fuel efficient, demonstrably consuming less than three litres of fuel per passenger per 100 kilometres. Nearly 5.5 million passengers have already enjoyed the new experience of flying on-board one of the 30 A380s in service, taking them to 20 major international destinations worldwide in unequalled comfort.

The A380 in-service fleet has accumulated over 15,000 commercial flights, and its operators have unanimously praised its popularity with passengers, higher load factors and superior profitability. With a range of 8,300nm / 15,400 km, and seating from 400 to more than 800 passengers, the A380 is the answer to alleviate traffic congestion at busy airports, cope with growth and minimise environmental impact. A380 firm orders now stand at 234 from 17 customers.
