Emirates Orders 32 Additional A380 Super Jumbos
Dubai-based international airline Emirates placed an order with
Airbus for an additional 32 A380 aircraft Monday, taking its total
firm order for the super-jumbos to 90. The order for the
additional aircraft has a list price of $11.5 billion. The
agreement was signed today during a ceremony at the Berlin Air Show
by His Highness (H.H.) Sheikh Ahmed Bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, Chairman
and Chief Executive, Emirates Airline and Group and Tom Enders,
Airbus President and CEO which was witnessed by German Chancellor
Angela Merkel and other dignitaries.
"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," said H.H. Sheikh Ahmed Bin
Saeed Al- Maktoum. "Our latest commitment signals Emirates'
confidence in the growth to come in a thriving aviation sector as
we build our fleet for tomorrow," he added.
"Emirates supported the development of
the A380 from the earliest days, a project employing tens of
thousands of Europe's best people and today's increased order, is
the best endorsement I can imagine. On behalf of all of us at
Airbus, we thank Emirates for their 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.
