emirates_588Emirates has placed an order with manufacturer Airbus for an additional two new A380 aircraft, to be delivered in the last quarter of 2017.
Each of these new aircraft are listed in Airbus’ 2016 price list at US$432.6 million.
The Dubai-based airline already operates a fleet of 75 Airbus A380s, with a further 65 on firm order. The additional two aircraft, to be powered by Rolls Royce Trent 900 engines will take Emirates’ total A380 order book to 142.
Commenting on the order, Emirates Airline president Sir Tim Clark said: “From now until the end of 2017, Emirates will retire 30 older aircraft from our fleet.
“At the same time, to meet our growth expectations, we will receive delivery of 24 new Boeing 777, and 33 new A380 aircraft including these two additional A380 aircraft just ordered.
“This is in line with our strategy to operate a modern and efficient fleet and offer the best possible experience for our customers.”
Airbus estimates that Emirates’ A380 orders support the employment of 41,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs in Europe. About 70 per cent of these jobs are split equally between France and Germany, with the UK having 17 per cent and the remaining 5,000 jobs in Spain.
