The Emirates recently received its 100th A380. With this occasion, a ceremony at Airbus’ Hamburg delivery center was thrown.

The aircraft is equipped with 3 classes with 14 private suites in First Class, 76 seats in Business Class and 426 seats in Economy, all of these featuring the Emirates’ Onboard Lounge.

According to the Emirates’ Chairman and CEO, Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum, the A380 was a big accomplishment for the Gulf carrier. They’ve been allowed to utilize it at slot-constrained airports, as well as at regional and ‘secondary’ airports, where they have increased passenger requests.

He also said that every time an A380 is launched on a route, it usually spurs future traffic and demand, because the Emirates travelers are enticed by the aircraft.

Sheikh Ahmed hosted the delivery ceremony and was joined by Tim Clark, the President Emirates Airline, Tom Enders, the Airbus CEO, Dominic Horwood, the Rolls-Royce Director – Customer and Services, Ali Al Ahmed, the UAE Ambassador to Germany and Frank Horch, the Senator for Economy, Transport and Innovation of Hamburg.

Enders noted that Airbus is extremely conceited of their relationship with the Emirates and its devotion to the program using the A380 as its flagship and the spine of its operations.

Dominic Horwood congratulated the Emirates on the portentous occasion. He said he is very proud to be powering their 100th Airbus A380 and looks forward to strengthen their strong relationship in the future years.

It was also stated that the received A380 will be on display at the upcoming Dubai Air Show where Emirates wishes to place more orders for the aircraft. Sheikh Ahmed said at a ceremony that he hopes he can do it.

Emirates has 42 Airbus A380 remaining in the 142 original order, making them the world’s biggest customer of the aircraft.

if the sales of the A380 were not as expected for Airbus, Enders said he believed the manufacturer would be yielding the jumbo jets in the next 10 years. He says he’s not sure he will let John Leahy retire without at least one more notable A380 order.

The 100th Emirates A380 is supposed to start functionating after the Dubai Air Show presentation, were the carrier plans to unveil a special finery in homage to the late HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founding father of the United Arab Emirates

Sheikh Ahmed said that 2018 is the ‘Year of Zayed,’ because they are 100 years since the birth of their country’s founding father and they are celebrating his legacy. The Emirates are proud to launch their tribute to the man who has been crucial to the UAE’s formation and development, at the landmark delivery of their 100th A380.

Emirates A380 programme creates and supports manufacturing jobs across the global aircraft manufacturing supply chain. Airbus estimates that Emirates’ A380 orders alone support 41,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs in Europe, including some 14,500 in Ger.

many alone. These are high-skilled jobs and impact a high-value supply chain, creating a significant multiplier effect in the

countries where Airbus has aircraft production facilities. The estimated Europe-wide impact of Emirates’ A380 investment amounts to €3.4 billion in GDP in 2013/14.

The delivery of Emirates’ first A380 was in August 2008, setting an average of 11 aircraft deliveries per year. Emirates has a 1,500 flight deck crew and over 23,000 cabin crews specially qualified to operate its A380 fleet.
