Emirates recently celebrated the milestone delivery of its 100th Airbus A380 aircraft at a special ceremony with Airbus at the manufacturer’s delivery centre in Hamburg on 3rd November 2017.
As the world’s largest operator of the A380 aircraft, Emirates has flown this iconic double-decker jet to 48 cities on six continents on scheduled services. Including one-off flights, special commemorative services, test flights and other operational deployments, over 70 airports to date have welcomed the Emirates A380.
The airline receives on average 11 A380 deliveries per year, starting from its first aircraft in August 2008. In its 2016/17 financial year, Emirates received a record 19 new A380 aircraft. In Dubai, Emirates operates the world’s largest A380 hub with an entire purpose-built concourse dedicated to A380 operations. With over 1,500 flight deck crew and over 23,000 cabin crew specially trained to operate its A380 fleet, we are excited to be sharing this celebration with you – as we thank you for flying with us.
In conjunction with this special celebration, watch this special video by one of our very own Malaysian Cabin Crew members, Tracey.
