I think that Fujairah will be connected to all major cities within every emirate as part of the UAE national railway project.

Currently there are no domestic flights within UAE. There was a service operated by Gulf Air few years back from RAK to Abu Dhabi and it was ceased coz there was no demand.

Emirates takes big leap in sports aid

Staff Report

July 15, 2010

A380 double-decker flying to Milan for official unveiling of AC Milan's new shirt

Emirates is taking one giant leap in the world of sports sponsorship by flying its A380 to Milan for the official unveiling of AC Milan's new Fly Emirates shirt.

The superjumbo gesture, the first chance passengers have had to fly commercially to and from Italy on an A380, will form the backdrop of a high profile event on July 29 at Malpensa Airport.

The A380 will replace Emirates' morning Milan service out of Dubai, (EK093). It will depart from Terminal 3 at 6.40am and arrive at 12.15pm in Milan.

The double-decker offers 14 first class private suites, 76 new generation fully-flat seats in business class and 399 seats in a roomier economy cabin.

Feature

However, the most talked about aspects of the Emirates A380 are the onboard lounge where premium passengers can enjoy a drink and talk business with other travellers, as well as the onboard shower spas.

Salem Obaidullah, Emirates senior vice-president of commercial operations for Europe and Russian Federation, said: "Emirates enjoys making big statements and they don't get much bigger than this. The AC Milan shirt unveiling is a great opportunity to showcase our A380 product and demonstrate our commitment to sport, especially when it is just two days ahead of the Emirates Cup in London on July 31 when the new shirt will be worn by the team for the first time during a game."

In the presence of world famous players David Beckham — who was on loan from LA Galaxy at the time, and Ronaldinho, Emirates announced in February a new 60 million euro (Dh278 million) deal with AC Milan, giving the airline prestigious shirt sponsor status over five years.

The adidas shirt will be unveiled officially at Malpensa Airport attended by the AC Milan team and VIP guests.

Emirates offers special welcome to Dakar with hotel stopover in Dubai

Senegal is famous for its hospitality and now Emirates customers have another welcome reason to visit this friendly West African nation - a free hotel stay in Dubai to break their journey. To celebrate the launch of its new route to Dakar on 1st September 2010, Emirates is offering First and Business Class passengers a complimentary stay at a leading hotel in Dubai, plus a free 96 hour visa when they book a return flight to the Senegalese capital.

First Class passengers will receive a free two night stay at the five star Jumeirah Emirates Towers Hotel, while Business Class travellers will be offered a one night complimentary stay. The offer applies to return journeys taken by passengers travelling exclusively with Emirates between the 1st and the 30th of September.

Richard Vaughan, Divisional Senior Vice President, Commerical Operations Worldwide, said, "Senegal is a fascinating country which will soon become within easy reach of the Middle East, thanks to our new route to Dakar - the first direct service from the GCC."

Vaughan added, "This attractive offer provides the perfect excuse for customers to return home to see family or friends, enjoy a business trip in style, or simply discover this vibrant and friendly country for themselves."

Dakar will be Emirates' fifth new route in 2010, following Tokyo on March 28th, Amsterdam on 1st May, Prague on 1st July and Madrid on 1st August. Dakar is also Emirates' third new African destination in less than 12 months, after Durban and Luanda joined the network in late 2009.

Starting 1st September 2010, Emirates will fly non-stop to Dakar five times a week on every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The service will be operated by an Airbus A340-300 aircraft, offering a three-class configuration of 12 First Class, 42 Business and 213 Economy Class seats.

Emirates Flight 797 will depart Dubai at 09:55 and touch down at Dakar's Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport at 16:00hrs the same day. The return flight departs Dakar at 17:40, arriving in Dubai at 07:15 the following morning. The service connects seamlessly to key centres in the Middle East, the Indian Sub-continent, Asia and the Far East.

The free hotel stay promotion can be used on the inbound or outbound leg of trips starting or ending in Dakar.

I think the thread title should be amended to UAE Aviation news to cover all the update related to all local carriers including Air Arabia, RAK Airways & Fly Dubai.

Since Dubai Air Show 2009, there was no further news as far as I know;

On the sidelines of the Dubai Airshow, the Government of Senegal and Emirates Group today announced a joint agreement paving the way for Emirates to support Senegal Airlines.

The Government of Senegal recently announced it has launched a new carrier, Senegal Airlines, scheduled to begin operations in 2010. The Senegalese private sector has a majority equity participation in the new airline.

Following a high-level meeting between His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline & Group and His Excellency Karim Wade, Senior Minister, Ministry of International Cooperation, National Planning, Air Transport and Infrastructure, Senegal, it was agreed the Emirates Group will assist the Senegalese carrier in the start-up and post launch phases. The agreement will cover commercial support, technical expertise, training and aviation-related goods and services.

Mr. Wade commented, "Senegal is strengthening its aviation industry and is building a new international airport called the Blaise Diagne Airport. The new, technologically-advanced airport combined with a brand-new, modern airline will make Senegal a major aviation force in Africa as well as internationally."

"Emirates is a world-leading company known for its innovation and superior product and service. We are pleased Emirates has agreed to share its knowledge, expertise and experience and support us in establishing Senegal Airlines," he added.

Sheikh Ahmed noted, "Emirates has a strategic interest in Africa and currently operates to 17 points within the continent. The Senegalese government approached us to support the start-up of their new carrier and participate in its future, and we are delighted to add value to the aviation infrastructure of Senegal."

"I am pleased to note the UAE and Senegal have been collaborating on many fronts. Recently DP World was awarded the concession to develop and operate the existing container terminal at Dakar, Terminal à Conteneur, and invest in a new container terminal at the port, Port du Futur. In addition, the Jebel Ali Free Zone is developing a special economic free zone connected to Senegal's Blaise Diagne Airport. I am confident these recent associations will strengthen the links our two countries share," he added.

The agreement between the Emirates Group and the Government of Senegal comes into effect immediately and is long term.

Although Madrid is a major destination and also one of the biggets cities in the world, Emirates will comence flying to Madrid in Aug 2010 wich is too late I beleive !

It's not about being a big city, its more about the feasibility and demand. I would love to see Emirates flying to Bounos Aires, Lisbon, Mexico city & Vancouver. But it is all subject to passenger and cargo traffic.

In 2009, Bogota was announced to be the secpnd destination for EK in South America, so far nothing happend !

I think that it might be among one of the future South American routes that will be launched in the near future by Emirates, since the Emirates website has "Mexico - English", "Chile - English", "Peru - English" and "Uruguay - English" as an option under the "North and South America" section on the "Choose your Local Website" page.

Emirates Airline to place $5bn Boeing order

Tim Hepher

Sunday, 18 July 2010


JET ORDER: Dubai's Emirates Airline is said to be ready to place a $5bn order for 20 Boeing 777 wide body jets.

Emirates airline is set to place a $5 billion order for 20 Boeing 777 wide body jets, aviation sources said on Saturday.

The order could be a key feature of the opening day of the July 19-25 Farnborough air show on Monday, when the Dubai based airline is expected to hold a news conference.

Boeing declined to comment.

An order for 20 of the latest model of 777s, which seats 365 passengers, would be worth $5.4 billion at list prices.

Emirates, the largest airline in the Arab world, placed an order for 32 Airbus A380s at the Berlin air show last month and said it was likely to order more aircraft soon.

Emirates places US$9.1b Boeing 777-300ER order

Robeel Haq

Jul 19, 2010

Emirates has placed an order with Boeing for an additional 30 777-300ER aircraft, worth approximately US$9.1 billion (AED 33.4 billion) in list prices. The new order adds to the fleet of 71 777-300ERs previously ordered, of which 53 aircraft are currently in service.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, witnessed the signing at the Farnborough Air Show.

The agreement was signed between H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group and Jim Albaugh, President and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Emirates Group senior executives, including Maurice Flanagan, Executive Vice Chairman Emirates Airline & Group; Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline and Gary Chapman, President Group Services and Dnata, were also present at the event.

“Emirates is the world’s largest operator of 777s and this latest order, adding to 71 777-300ERs previously ordered, affirms Emirates’ strategy to become a world leading carrier and to further establish Dubai as a central gateway to worldwide air travel,” said H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum. “Our latest deal signals Emirates’ confidence in the growth of the thriving aviation sector and our commitment to building a modern, environmentally efficient fleet for tomorrow,” he added.

The 777-300ER will be operated in a three-class configuration with eight First class suites, 42 Business class seats and 310 Economy class seats and offers an additional cargo payload of 20.1 tonnes. Emirates has 86 777s in service – three -200s, six -200ERs, 10 -200LRs, 12 -300s, 53 -300ERs and two freighters.

“Emirates is today one of the world’s leading airlines thanks in part to the 777. Its ambitious expansion plans have established itself as a global force in the aviation sector,” said Jim Albaugh, president and CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Emirates has played an important role in the 777’s success with its significant support of the program and valuable feedback over the years. Today’s order serves to underscore the airline’s confidence in the airplane, which forms the mainstay of its fleet.”

Emirates is on track to become one of the largest airlines in the world. In addition to the order placed today, Emirates has 79 Airbus A380s, 70 Airbus A350s and seven Boeing freighters on order totaling 204 wide-body aircraft worth more than US$67 billion (AED 246 billion). In a year where the aviation industry was rocked by the economic downturn, Emirates Airline recently reported its 22nd year of profit, up 416 percent to close at US$964 million (AED 3.5 billion) over its 2008-09 profits of US$187 million (AED 686 million).

Frankfurt is already on EK's list of their next A380 destinations, but they don't have enought aircraft, and with upcoming deliveries they will upgauge Beijing, Shanghai, Manchester and New York-JFK first.
It's very likely that EK will start A380 service to FRA in early 2011, about the same time that Singapore Airlines might start A380 service to FRA as well.
